More reputation++; for you! I found the line of code for it and added it to my code. I don't see it often, so I haven't noticed and changes yet... hopefully it has eliminated the problem!
Thanks for the recommendation! I did some research on it to find that it is a lot easier to catch on to than SDL and that it is higher level. For me, higher level stuff is just more confusing (even though higher level is meant to be more understandable). I noticed that it is still in early stages and not as portable as SDL, and that SDL has better performance. SFML sounds like something to keep an eye on, but I prefer SDL and the low level atmosphere. Thank you for bringing it to my attention, and thank you very much for providing the solution to my problem!
