I'm able to get horizontal scrolling only to work fine by telling MMF to follow the X coordinate of the player. But that's not what I want. I don't want the player to be able to scroll backwards. I only want the screen to scroll forward in one direction like in Contra or Metal Slug. Does anyone know how to do this? I can't seem to figure it out.

If you for example only want the level to scroll to the right, these events should work;
* If Players X position is greater than "X Left Playfield + (the width of the window / 2)"
- Then center the screen on the X position of the player

Hmm.. I tried that and it still allows me to scroll backwards. I can't get it to scroll forward only like I want it to.

Both those should work. You must have some other scrolling event interfering with it.

Negative. It can't find anything interfering. Maybe I'm doing something else wrong. Could someone possibly make an example .cca (or whatever) for me to look at?

I have an engine that does what I think you need. I'll mail it to you if you're interested.

Do you have a 'Centre window position' event?
