    Hi Tim,

    Take a deep breath, relax, and tell us all about it. We're not going to laugh at you 'cause we've all been there ourselves.

    So... a BSAVEd chunk of screen memory isn't going to work any other screen mode than the one you took it from. Remember, what you're saving is NOT a picture but a string of bits that are put back into memory the way they came out so the 'box' has to be the same.

    Now, what's this about DEFSEG?

      Tim you can't save screen memory direct in graphics mode.
      You have to load the required screen area into an array with
      the graphic GET statement then BSAVE the array. There is an
      example if you hit F1 for help in PB then look at BSAVE in the
      language section.
