Multiple Layouts in one layout? (Layout Object?)

Hello! For my Ludum Dare Entry I made a game where you had to complete levels in a platformer in under ten seconds/without dying or else you had a chance of being shot in the face and losing progress.

To do the TV effect I made all the layers except the Game layer have no parallax rate. This is annoying from a design perspective, because to change levels I have to change layouts, which can mess up the gun at the top of the screen. Also, if I wanted to change an effect on a certain layout, I would have to go through each layout and add the effect. Grumble grumble.

I know there was a "Layout" plugin in CC that worked for the most part, and I was wondering if such a plugin would be possible in C2? It would make things a lot easier and open a lot of opportunities for mechanics for other developers. If it isn't then I guess I'm going to have to bite the bullet and find a more reliable method of level creation, or find a way to mimic that behavior.

Thanks again! Phobos0022013-08-27 18:49:27
