can you attach the other file as well, or is what you specified up ^ ? as in.. do you want us to just have that, or something else?

I don't know if I'll debug the whole thing, so I'll post things as I find them (I only look at it when it's not my turn in Heroes of Might and Magic Wink )

1. Make your filename a constant and put it at the top of your program. You probably wanted to give the use some choice, but for now make it simple (comment out the "getFileName" proc for now)

2. Your title screen lags like mad. Just make a variable to keep track of whnat state you are in (eg. "over the top arrow", "over none") then only redraw when this state changes.

I see what you are trying to do with your update process but it goes against the purpose of the "offscreenonly" - View.Update combo.
What you want to do with the View.Update is to ensure that the next frame of your game is ready before you put it on the screen. Unfortunately with your reliance on processes for a good part of your program it will be a bit of a task to change it.

This might sound harsh but I would drop ALL of the processes. Instead keep track of what's going on in variables. Put a main game loop inside controlGame and when you update the arrows only move them a small bit each time.

To get a constant frame rate the way you had with your View.Update use something like:
code:
loop
     clock(now)
     if now - lastUpdate > 50 then
          View.Update
          lastUpdate = now
     end if
end loop

ok thanks that was really helpful, i knew i was too reliant on processes, but i got really lazy

oh i just installed turing 4.0.5 and theres this new View.UpdateArea and it seems useful for my situation, ill maybe try that out first
