Seeing as the search feature is still (or so I think) down, I'm going to ask this. In a few games I saw some backgrounds that scrolled, but not as fast as the character you were playing as. I could use some help with this. Is this possible in TGF? I would also like an example if possible. Thanks.

 
If you must touch the dragon, just be wary. It'll bite your hand off.

This effect is called parralax scrolling.

First, make the background active object and make sure that the setting 'scroll with frame' (or something) is turned off. Then make the next events:

If player goes up: move the active object to the current y + 1. (that's one pixel down for the time that the player moves up).
If player goes down: set the y to y - 1.

The same with x. It is this simple.
Of course, the background should be pretty big, so splitting it up in more objects or tiling it would be a good way to go. Also, make sure the 'move this amount of pixels in the opposite direction' has a nice movement value, like 1 or 2 or whatever suits your game.

i did see an example that allows lots of small objects rather than a giant active object at the back.
It was on the sonic fangames heaquarters site.

Davince didn't mention that in TGF the foreground has to be active objects too so the background stays at the back. This is a problem with the 262 object limit.

Oh, right... This will be a problem with TGF: all backdrops will always be behind the parallax background. In MMF you could fix this by using the background system box, I think.

One more reason to simply upgrade to MMF I guess.

Why do people insist on bringing up dead topics. Its not just you Silver, but I've seen a load of dead topics being brought back. After about 2 days between the last person who posted, & now... its dead.

I don't have anything to complain to when the post is newer than one month and the question hasn't been answered yet... But the question HAS been answered. Go ventilate your enthousiasm in a news post on your site instead or something.

This thread is hardly old :/
An old post I'd consider to be 3-6 months old - not 2 weeks.
