Special thanks to Ectoprods for the image hosting.

After looking through all the tutorial & engine junk I have in my computer, I haven't found a decent one for parallax scrolling. So, I've made one here.

- Speed adjustable to the relative speed of closest object
- Random star generation engine included
- Smooth movement of stars
- Doesn't require any extensions

I dunno why I added a screenshot, it doesn't show the scrolling. Engine size is smaller than the screenshot

You added a screenshot because otherwise it wouldn't be accepted. ^_^

This is nice, but it doesn't help with real scrolling.

Who ever said anything about real scrolling? The whole point of making a parallax engine is so it LOOKS like it's scrolling. Hmm... I should do an extended version of that later.

This is pathetic. This is included in Klik and Play's game library for fuck's sake.

Over seven years of being a 'klikker' and this is all you can show for it.

Admin Unit 4: Real scrolling in the sense of using MMF's scroll vector. This would be fine for an Asteroids-like game (as demonstrated), but I can't see its uses stretching much beyond that.

Well, you could use it if you want two types of scrolling at once. Hmm... maybe I'll update with an example of that later.
