Make a background cover the whole screen

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed Aug 07, 2013 4:59 pm

I'm using fullscreen with scale outer and I'm having big problems getting the background to be the same size as the window. The background seems to set it's width to a wrong number based on the size of the screen.

Here's the first thing I used to set the width:


And the results on a stretched out screen (for testing purposes)


So I tried this, but it doesn't seem to work either:



So is there anything else I can do to get the background to span across the entire screen?Sushin2013-08-07 17:00:13

All I can say is just stretch it.. BIG TIME. That's what I do, and it's the only way that has proved successful (because it's the only one I've tried and it works! [I use scale outer if that helps deciding on a future method.])

This seems to only be a problem when scale outer is being used.

Another problem is that I'm trying to center some text on the screen, but it just doesn't work since I'm using window width.
