Scrolling no longer works

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Wed Mar 16, 2011 4:17 am

I'm not sure quite what happened, but I was working on a project about an hour ago, and now for some reason no scrolling of any kind works unless I select "Unbounded scrolling".

My previous projects scroll okay, but any new games won't scroll at all. I'm baffled.

On the main character, there's an option called "Center view on me" in its attributes. Maybe you unselected it by accident?

Reinstalled the program. Tried "Center view on me" - still nothing.

have you tried testing to see if the problem reproduces itself in a fresh .cap yet?

Tried a new .Cap, same problem.

And when I close the program, I get the "This program has encountered a problem and needs to close" message. But it only happens after I already exited out of Construct.

Yes, it does. Actually, it even helped me realize what was causing my problem;

It seems the issue was that I hadn't increased my Layout Width, so without Unbounded Scrolling, the program wouldn't scroll to follow the object.

Rather confusing, but I suppose it makes sense. Thanks to everyone who replied. I'm glad I figured this out now before it caused any real problems with my game development.
