    Not sure but I’m guessing your creating a trail? That’s the ghosting?

    Your probably creating a trail object every step. So 60 objects created every step.
    You get that.

    If that’s what your ghosting is?

    Every code in the step event will execute every frame.

    So if game is 60 FPS. It will do it every frame. So........

    There are some good starting tutorials by cosmonaut space rocks. I would take a half hour and start there. It will get your head around it.

    Happy learning.

    Another cause could be that you've removed the tick at "Draw background color". With no background and no background color there is nothing that will cover the images of the previous frame.

    Or you are drawing to a surface and not clearing it.

    We can guess all day unless you give us something to work with here.

    Not really adding anything here, just had to comment on the screenshot the OP provided - taken with a camera?

    Try ALT+Print Screen next time.
