Yeah the difference between 16 and 24 is hard to perceive with such pic. Heck you could even downgrade to 8 bits if you have a compression routine and save some space and it would probably not look too bad. On a side note can Paint convert to 16 bits color?
I'M glad some coding is done too. Also for Getkey I was actually confused the other day because Eiyeron seemed to have tried one routine after another and all seemed to run at BASIC speed. That scared the hell out of me, but finally it turned out he meant only one of the routines.
Good luck Ashy!
