This is a discussion on Specific question within the Game Programming forums, part of the General Programming Boards category; hi again, i am going to make this as short & simple as possible. how do you move images around, ...
What platform? What library?
This board is a public help board, not your own private one. This board has a email alert feature... see that you learn how to use it.

"The most common form of insanity is a combination of disordered passions and disordered intellect with gradations and variations almost infinite."
The common method (whatever OS and compler you use) is to draw the image at a certain (X Y) position. The you change the (X Y) coordinates a little and draw it again. Repeat this several times.
The result is that the image appears to move.
double buffering/backbuffering works best. that way the images don't flicker. (this is for windows, i don't know what else you use it for = | ). www.gametutorials has a tutorial on it, it is called "Displaying multiple bitmaps". It also is on the rest of the tutorials that have moving objects (or whatever you wanna call it).
DOS perhaps . Double buffering/Page flipping is probably used in every GUI/Application...Originally posted by Tazar_Azar
