Layouts sharing the same image?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Jul 29, 2013 4:29 pm

Hi, I have a large background image for my main game.

I want the same background image on the loader layout.

however, in the loader layout view, I cant access the objects which were in the main game layout. If I add the background image sprite, will the game bundle it up and download it twice? If so, can this be avoided?

Thanks for your help.

I think I sussed it. Althouth there are no objects in the objects window for the new layout, if you make a sprite from another layer global, you can drag it from the object types window onto the new layer, and it only seems to exist once in the project!

@nutmix there is a project bar and an object bar,

project bar = all objects in game
object bar = all objects in current layout

you can enable them in "view" menu

edit: ow yes and there is indeed a right click filter menu in object bar,
to show all object in project, didn't know that myselfvtrix2013-07-29 21:38:33
