Making a side scroller

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Tue Mar 13, 2012 11:16 pm

I was briefly fooling around with the scrolling demo.

It has a block on the screen, a few platforms, and the screen moves as you move.

Is there a way to make an actual side scroller? Where the screen moves automatically from right to left?

Obviously I can't make one huge graphic that is like a gazillion pixels wide and just keeps moving left.

ok so you wouldnt make a huge graphic on a side scroller, what you would do is loop it, so when it gets to the end it would just repeat itself. how long this graphic depends on how much you want to show I.E you can loop a simple forest or you can loop a forest,river,mountains and oceans all together
