    Hi,

    I think your question is unclear.
    What does "refresh" mean in your question?
    The screen information is "automatically" refreshed at least 60 times per second...
    Or do you mean how to clear the screen in tweaked modes?
    Or how to switch the active page?
    Or...

    Please be more specific.

    Happy coding

    I'm not too familiar with unchained modes, but I'm guessing you'd just write a black pixel (or any other color) to every pixel on the screen... Or is there some reason why this can't be done?

    The screen clears everywhere except the sprites. It doesnt do anything to the sprites.

    Sprites?

    You must be using some graphics library. In that case you should first disable each sprite, and then clear the screen. I expect there is a function to clear the screen in the library too.

    Happy coding...

    No I am not using a graphics library. You don't comprehendo. You do not have to have a graphics library to have sprites dufus

    A sprite is just an image that is used in the game. I made my own map making algorithm and picture displaying algorithm. All I need is to clear the "images" okay? Or bitmaps, or graphics whatever you want to call it.

    I don't know detail, but here's where I would start

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
