As well as games. I'm using FPC & fpImage in my multimedia/game
engine, and it works perfectly - PNGs, JPEGs, BMPs, TGAs - you name
it, fpImage works flowlessly. One thing that could be improvemed in
fpImage is it's internal format - it would be really helpful if one
could choose between bytes and words (maybe even Longwords/Qwords ?),
as well as order of components (RGBA vs BGRA). Several defines (plus
lot of changes) should do the job.
