Comments are all in French...no, you can debug this one on your own.

i found the bug
http://simpleproject.open-design.be/...3d_sources.zip
The code for the real version is actually VB6.

The bug is in ClsTitre2.cls. There's a couple of huge select case blocks that map characters to positions on the logical texture grid. There is no "z" in that. Since he is using global variables, that explains why you're getting duplicates of the previous character (as it's retaining its value). You'll obviously need to add "z" to those blocks.
