    If 'here' is pronounced as 'hear', why 'there' isnt pronounced as 'dear'??

    also

    Also, how can I make that two sprites that have different palettes show good on screen?? If I load one sprite and show it on the screen and then load the other the first one switches to the palette of the second sprite and the final result is desastrous, I'd like both sprites to look fine.

    1st ? - That has already been answered by kas in one of your other threads.

    2nd ? - Make the bitmaps the same amount of bits (recommend every bitmap be 24bit and put the color depth to 32 in your program)
