xscreen and yscreen are coordinates relatives to Screen. So:

xscreen = 0: left side of view
xscreen = view.width: right side of view

yscreen = 0: top
yscreen = view.height: down

(How do you people make that little white box "thingy?")
--------------------
I still don't quite understand the screen coordinate stuff: x,y;xscreen,yscreen;view.width,view.height; view. Would anyone be kind enough to explain? I've looked at the help files and in the forum and I can't seem to locate this info. Sorry. :oops: TIA
I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.

x and y are relative to the entire game.

xscreen and yscreen are relative to the screen(view).

Your picture really is worth "1000 words". Your creative reply just ' blew me out of the water' and I became "1000 little Nemos". Now, coming full circle, I'm turning those little Nemos into "1000 Thank You's" and I'm sending each one back to you with my gratitude. :lol:
