Parallax Background — Now for sale in the Scirra Store!
https://www.scirra.com/store/construct2-behaviours/parallax-background-1807

If you've already tried adding a nice parallax effect to a side-scrolling game's backgrounds, you know how much pain it is!

You have to figure out how to position your backgrounds/foregrounds correctly, how to apply parallax effects from the bottom of the layout (floating mountains ? Been there!), how to make backgrounds wrap around the screen as the player scrolls in a random direction, and most of the time you will rage-quit after dealing with lots of layers, each with its own parallax value.

Using this addon, you can get a nice parallax effect for your game in no time.

Features

  • You can place all your backgrounds in the same layer if you wish.
  • Easily implementable parallax backgrounds that wrap around your layout!
  • You have full control over your backgrounds, they stay exactly where you place them in the editor, no matter how big your screen or layout are!
  • Backgrounds fully adapts to your screen size, zoom, or layout size. Everything stays smooth no matter what you do to your viewport!
  • Ideal for side-scrolling games such as platformers, infinite runners, shooters, etc.
  • Detailed manual for painless integration in your project.
  • Examples projects provided

Thanks for your purchase!

For your question, I made the backgrounds for demo purposes only, but if you like them you can modify the images as you wish and use them in your personal or commercial project, I have no problem with that.

A small bug that prevents you from using expressions in the ParallaxBG for Sprites plugin has been fixed, the updated version of this plugin is pending approval and should be available soon.

If you don't use the expressions of the ParallaxBG for Sprites plugin, you will not encounter the bug.

Please re-download the plugin and re-install it to be able to use expressions.
