Help with name program

Recommended Posts

i have a problem with this little program that i created where it shows some letters and a little lighting affect with it. Iv got the lighting affect down. The problem is that i want it to loop the affect so that it shows the effect 3 times with a delay of about .13 seconds inbetween flashes. I used this to loop it:
x=1
if x<3 then x=x+1
if x=3 then goto welcome
if x<3 then goto repeat
 
Everything is fine exept that it loops forever, and it doesnt end at 3 flashes. BTW i am using q-basic.

Where does repeat go? If it goes to the part right before x = 1 then as you step through the code:

x = 1, x is less than 3 so x=x+1 now x = 2, x is not equal to 3 so dont go to welcome, x is less than 3 so go to repeat, x = 1...

Infinite loop! That is assuming repeat is before x = 1.

also, can you tell me or give me a tutorial that shows how to move objects around the screen? You know like how to move "g"(on the right side of the screen) to the left side or the middle, etc? Do you put coordinates in or something?
