We've been meaning to release this for a while now, but better late than never. BackBuffer is the basic 2D display technology used in DX-Ball 2, which provides an abstracted interface to a linear frame buffer in 8, 16, 24, or 32-bits, with seamless full-screen and windowed mode switching. Now the source code for it is being released! With a couple of minor restrictions, you can freely use it in your own projects (freeware, shareware, commercial, whatever).

The source code archive contains four main components:

BackBuffer - the total 2D windowed/full screen interface.
CreateDib - handly class for displaying graphics in windows.
GLBuffer - work in progress OpenGL window handling class.
Sample Apps - simple app skeletons for BackBuffer and GLBuffer.
