How do I see things on other layers?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sun Jan 31, 2016 4:27 am

This is so stressful. I haven't used C2 in a while and I'm having a problem I remember having when I first tried it out 2 years ago: I have several layers, each layer has things on it, but only the top layer is actually visible.
Yes, they're all checked as "visible". Default settings all the way. Why can't I see anything on the other layers unless I drag those layers to the top?

When you click on a layer and look at the settings, make sure the Transparent option is set to Yes. Otherwise the layer will have a background and bottom layers will be invisible.

If that doesn't work, check the if the Visible in Editor option is Yes for all layers. Also Blend Mode - Normal. And if that fails try reinstalling C2.
Ba-dum Tsss!

Yeah I ended up figuring it out. Blows my mind that it isn't set to be transparent by default... Weird as heck.

also have to watch parallax. as if set wrong your items could be off screen compared to where your scroll to is.

UI is normally set to 0,0

Thanks for the tips, everyone. And for some reason my first layer was NOT set to transparent. Weird. But now I know!
