Could you post the pertinent code in a snippet? The DBPro file you attached will not show us anything. You could attach the .dba file, but it would be easier / simpler to just post your code related to the background scrolling.

The problem is that you are calling the _vScroller subroutine and returning from it before the DO - LOOP fully executes. Try this:

I must say that I have never seen scrolling done like that before, but it does indeed work. It actually runs at 316 FPS on my rig.

I get around 420 fps.

Just for fun, using this method you could add a sine wave to it!
