Downsizing resources (Sorry Here is teh Link)

As i Said before anything in SDL that outputs a surface like
DisplayFormatAlpha(… ConvertSurface… which leaves the original
surface in memory and therefore increases your memory footprint. You
must free the unused surfaces your self.

Here is the link to my old question, and this answer decreased my
memory footprint from over 1 gig down to around 200 megs

Sorry Torsten,
