I am making a game for computer class but their is one major bug.In the program you selectan arena to play in and the characters to use from one form with thumbnails of themthen when the maximized Game form comes up it is supposed to Blit in the background with the sprites of the characters. I am only currently blitting one character as I try and get it to work. One problem though: It blits the screen and then instead of blitting the mask and picture, it blits a semi transparent image of the form from which you select the wanted arena and characters. What I am doing is this:
Place the background in a non visible picture box
Place the mask and picture in seperate non visible picture boxes
SRCCOPY the background to the visible picture box
SRCAND the mask to the visible picture box over the background
SRCPAINT the picture over the mask.
