I'm not quite sure what you mean by a "rare effect?" If you can tell me what the "rare effect" is maybe I can help. In the meantime, make sure you are using the bmpname.move command. If not, try that. It's: bmpname.move left, top, width, height.

Does the entire screen flicker or just your bitmap? Are you using a image or picturebox control? How are you moving it?

hello
It's only the image and we use the move statement.
But, how to eliminate the flicker in all cases?
thanks and regards

Please add the following variables:

a) BMP color deep (How many colors)
b) Screen color deep
c) Type of VGA card, OS type and CPU speed

use the bitblt funktion , and copy the bmp into a new picture box,erase the old and then copy again to new place , this is use to move sprites , hmmm your question is a little short..
search on sprites and vb on the internet and you maybe find a exemple on bitblt.

Go to my website, you will find a complete ScreenSaver written in VB5, and there is a lot of bitmaps (sprites) moving on the screen. The full source code is provided :
