I changed number of gnats from 300 to 500
and added this cod
'draw the gnat
If a > 0 And a < 100 Then Me.Line (oX, oY)-(.X, .Y), vbWhite
If a > 200 And a < 300 Then Me.Line (oX, oY)-(.X, .Y), vbGreen
If a = 0 Then Me.Line (oX, oY)-(.X, .Y), vbRed

If a > 300 And a < 400 Then Me.Line (oX, oY)-(.X, .Y), vbYellow
If a > 400 And a < 500 Then Me.Line (oX, oY)-(.X, .Y), &HFF00FFe
