I am fooling around with a game that uses a large sprite as a plan view of a city. I have the 2d scrolling of the map working well and also have a car sprite in plan. My question is how do I get text to appear on top of my scrolling bitmap so I can display score, timers and messages.

Well, if you are using DBPro, you may want to look at the Draw Sprites First command.

I searched and found a previous thread on the subject and did just what you suggested and of course it worked.
Thank you for you quick reply.

Sigh! So many commands and so little time
