you can take control of the draw order by setting each sprite's priority
in dbpro: SET SPRITE PRIORITY
sprites will then be drawn in ascending order. ie, Sprite 1, Sprite 2, etc., with the larger numbers "on top" of the smaller ones.
further, you'll get better help re: DarkGDK by posting your DarkGDK questions in the DarkGDK section
of the forum.
