i did load the dat file but didn't post to spare the obvious. i can call
draw_spite passing (screen, data[0].dat, 100, 100) and it works fine.
however for the nature of my project, having the draw routine draw the
bitmaps right fron the dat file is unreasonably slow. that is why i wanted
to load them all in at one point and then use them repeatedly.

for now i am just puting a slew of bmps in a dir and loading them all
individually, but for a finished product the filesize and cluster of files
like that is not feasible. could you post a working example of loading a bmp
from a dat file into a global BITMAP* array.

thanks in advance
