Hi Ruy,

I have not been able to reproduce this, and I have not found any memory leaks. There is one user who has sent me a potential improvement when running on a 256 color video mode. If this is happening on computers running in 256 colors, let me know, I can send you a modified version of EnDiGrph.Pas to test. Other than that, I have not found any workaround, other than using Win2000 which seems less prone to this error.

Best regards,
