Re: Mysterious lost program coding!

Re: How to erase without flicker?

You can probably get away with printing spaces to clear your sprites, at least for a while. And if you’re moving in whole character jumps. If you start exploring moving one pixel at a time, or your flicker gets too bad, then it might be worth exploring OVER. There’s two variants: Think of OVER 1 as ...
