I'm working with SDL & C++ at the moment, so I'll take a look at the video & pastebin when I get home tonight as I can't get to it at work. I had a similar issue when I first started, so maybe I'll notice something that fixed it for me.

I have a new problem I fixed the old one :D had to flip once every iteration of the main while loop but here is my new problem.

Is this the correct way to do animation in SDL / C++ because whats happening is when I set enemy1 = 0; or any other digit then when playing the game it causes the sprite to disappear for a couple of milliseconds

               //OGK Timer
            int Enemy1 = 0;

            //increment timer "Add too the value of timer"
         //if Enemy1 equal any of those cases below
            case(0) : {EnemyFrame = 0;} break;
            case(2) : {EnemyFrame = 1;} break;
            case(4) : {EnemyFrame = 2;} break;
            case(6) : {EnemyFrame = 3;} break;
            case(8) : {EnemyFrame = 4;} break;
            case(10) : {EnemyFrame = 5;} break;
            case(12) : {Enemy1 = 0;} break;
         //Puts OrangeGhostKnight Onto FrameBuffer
         OrangeGhostKnightRect = StorageRect[10];

can anyone else help me with my problem I'm dieing for it
