how do we unload a movie once it has played, i have a way by putting the movie in a dif form anf then unload the form, but if the movie is in the same form as ur prog, how do we unload it? (if i dun unload the movie the game is very slow thought the movie visible is set to false)

Try unloading the control that holds the movie.

(which control is it by the way??)

How are you playing the movie? You draw something on the form and use that right?

Anything you draw onto the form is called a "control", becaues it allows the users to control your program.

If you use the
<pre><font color=red>Unload objName

</pre></font color=red>syntax, you can remove controls from the form at runtime, thus freeing up memory.

Since you guys are busy discussing unloading, would you mind telling me how to have the splash screen disappear after, lets say 3 seconds. I have tried it out but something seems to be wrong. Can't figure it out.

You should start your own thread for a completely unrelated topic. Just use a timer with an interval of 3000

create a timer for it, set the timer interval to say 10000.. in the sub on fomr load set
timer.interval = 10000
timer.enabled = true

in the timer sub use while loop

while counter &lt; 100
counter = counter + 1
if counter = 100 then Unload form

remember to set the counter to 0.

please correct me if there is any error, or if there is any other way simpler than this, images/icons/smile.gif
