Ok, prepare to be amazed by what you are about to see....A LINE DRAWER... Very Happy
DO NOT in any shape, way, or form look deeply into the drawer code because it is such a mess your eyes may explode...Thank you
Can anyone help with the flicker? I know it has to do with vertical retrace, but anywhere i put in a retrace wait it just makes things worse.

BTW, I know there are many errors(like not clearing the kbd buffer, it has been pointed out to me in other threads) but I dont care, This was made to run on my computer as a test, so I didn't care about things like that.

Code:
org 100h

push 0a000h
pop es

mov ax,13h
int 10h

start:
call mouse
call line
call cls

key:
in al,60h
dec al
jnz start
mov ax,03h
int 10h
ret

cls:
        mov cx,0FA00h
        mov al,0
        rep stosb
        ret

mouse:
        pusha
        mov     ax,03h
        int 33h
        shr     cx,1h
        mov     [x2], cx
        mov     [y2], dx
        popa
        ret

line:
        pusha
        mov     ax, [y1]                   
         mov     bx, 320                 
        mul     bx                      
        add     ax, [x1]                
        mov     di, ax

You could try using the double buffer technique. Draw to an off screen buffer and then switch the graphics card to the new buffer when then vertical retrace is in progress.

I never thought about using a double buffer. I'll try that.

edfed: neat stuff there, but I like using code that I've written.
