[directfb-dev] Re: Help me please! About 4bits pixel format.

There are many other similar problems in >DirectFB to prevent me implementing 4bpp format. But it is very It is possible to use uneven X coordinates. You have to work at a bit level though. So, if you would highlight the first pixel of a row, you would only manipulate the first 4 bits. The next pixel would use the higher 4 bits of the same byte, the next (3rd) pixel would use the lower 4 bits of the second byte, and so on.
