Assuming you are using DBPro, you might want to take a look at Draw Sprites First and Draw Sprites Last commands.

I've never used DB Classic so I'm not to sure hot solve your text on sprite problem.

As for Star Wars style scrolling, I think there is a posting in "3 Dimensional Chat" forum that may help.

...strange! Why was "how to" changed to "hot", I'm not that bad a speller.

What you need to do, is make the text a sprite. Contact me on an instant messenger below for more info.
