Socoder -> Blitz -> text smudging across screen?

Hi all, why is this code making it so that its smudging the moving text?



is being called in:



which is being called in:



the Results_Text() is called when:



I need for it to update the text WITHOUT using cls, because its part of a menu.

And idk why it wont update.

its above flip

Without using CLS, the buffers contents remain- ergo, anything previously left drawn remains on screen and will appear as through you smudged it. Why are you avoiding calling CLS, exactly?

Why don't you want a black background? If you want a different colour, try the ClsColor command to choose a custom CLS colour.

CLS clears the screen, then you redraw the 3D screen, then you put the text on top.
You do not "Move" the text.
You draw it again.

Like if you take your pen, and write "fish" on a piece of paper, then I tell you to write it again somewhere else on the page, the old one stays where it was.
You need a blank piece of paper (CLS) you need to redraw everything (renderworld) and then you can draw the text.

How can you move text? It's something that's drawn, not an entity, so I thought you always *had* to redraw it?

Well, basically you could move text, if you would use a sprite that is textured with a text. Else, indeed, you'd need to redraw it on each frame.

Yes, but you're redrawing the text each time. You can't actually 'move' it.

ShadowIce
yes u can.

u move it on its x value. -.-

....If you're calling TEXT within a loop, You're redrawing it. It's not a 'physical object' like a 3D model (which are still just shapes and lines drawn on this same buffer! they, too, can smudge), just a splotch on the imaginary painting canvas that you moved the brush X amount in whatever direction, and painted again.

Yeah, each call to Text is a redraw. There is no 'text' entity, so it can't be moved by definition.

And that's the end goal, but it's one thing to get something to work, and another to understand why it works. You should study these concepts deeply, since they're the bread and butter of your games operation.

If you're going to ask for help, don't be an arrogant prick.

The people who responded to your post are excellent programmers. They know what they are talking about. The fact that you wont listen is your problem.
