Hello Wizards;

I uploaded to AOZ a screen demo I was working on a Pre-AOZ engine, and there’s something wrong now with the manipulation of screen layers. It seems like it is inverted and jumping a number.
Can’t precisely explain what is happening so I made two screen recordings to demonstrate the issue.
The culprit code is a loop that move screen 1 back and forth between layers.

          screen 1 : 'scale and move up ball between screens
            Bob Scale 1,1/lyball,1/lyball 
            Bob 1,(mscreenHalfx-bobhalfsize),(mscreenHalfy-bobhalfsize)-(lyball*bobquartsize)+bobquartsize,1 
            're-arrange screen layers to move ball between layers
            for ly=2 to 4
               Screen to back ly 
               if lyball=ly
                 Screen to back 1 
               end if
            next ly 

I do a loop before this one, that position the screens in order and move it using Screen Display commands.
(Sorry for the sluggish screen recording)

Please provide me the complete code + graphics (or .AMOS)... I need to be in the same situation and would spend 1/2 hour trying to recreate your example... ;)

I'm trying to upload de zip files but it doesn't accept the password I used to create the account :(

Hello. I uploaded the zip files from another account. Sorry for the lack of examples before, I have now a dedicated Windows 10 virtual machine to play with this (I use mac).
I hope you still can run previous AMOS2 projects and notice that the ordering of the screens seems to be shifted.

Apparently, this is worse now, since doesn't work AT ALL in Test 2.
