Legacy GM [SOLVED] Graphical artifacts remain on black bars (aspect ratio), no refresh

G'day all,

Graphical artifacts remain on the black bars that pad the game window for maintaining the aspect ratio.
This includes debug text or whatever else gets drawn to that area of the screen, such as an nvidia utility overlay.

How can this be rectified?

I think just doing draw_clear(c_black) on the bars each frame before anything is drawn on them will fix it

Joe Ellis

oh I dont know sorry, I thought you were doing it manually with a surface or something

check if "clear display buffer with window color" is checked in the room properties
