    Question static text in DOS

    Is there away for me to put like a background like _ _ _ _ _ for a word and then slowly change just the _ to a letter, that way nothing changed on screen but the _ to say the letter K?

    What exactly do you mean?

    Are you wanting a space to fade into a letter or what?
