You all know the one- Where they get in the car and the background scrolls and keeps on repeating itself- The one tree, the same rock house..

Anyhow, how would I go about making something like that? Background system box? I've used it only a couple of times before for very simple paralax. Would you have to draw the background picture so that the beginning and the end are the same?

Thanks!

I would have 1 active object and duplicate it. Make it the size of the screen.

Always: Sub 1 (or whatever) from X coordinate
When location is 0-frame width: Set X coordinate to frame width

You'll probably want more than the sluggish 1 pixel, though.

No, do it this way:

1. Create the image in the background system box.

Go to the event editor. Follow these events (BGS refers to the Background System Box)

---

START OF FRAME: Set width of BGS to 640 (double the window width, you'll see why in a minute)

ALWAYS: Set X Position of BGS to x left frame - (alterable value a of BGS), Set Y position to Y Top Frame
: Add 1 to Alterable Value A of BGS

ALTERABLE VALUE A "BGS" IS GREATER OR EQUAL TO 320: Set Value A of BGS to 0

---
Thats it! The reason why we double the width of the Background System Box is to create a fake "masking" when the alterable value reaches 320. If you don't double the width this code will still work, but there will be a big white area that appears.

That sounds cool Circy, but do I have to make the beginning and the end of my picture similar? I figure I'd have to otherwise it may look like crap.

If your image is bigger than the screen size, start and end it the same and reposition it once it's near the end (always: add to x; x > frame width - screen width/2: set x to screen width/2).

This is actually the trick I use for my vertically continuous image. Do note that if your image is the same size as the screen size, you could have three instances of the object scroll or use Circy's method.

Phizzy done something like this for the title screen of Buzz dodge ball in the Ectoprods arcade.
I might still have the gam file somewhere.

Obviously it was an active object for that one.
