The "right" way of doing backgrounds in C2?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun May 12, 2013 4:16 pm

@Alcemon My whole game is 7mb, though I could probably get that down to 5mb if I fixed a few plugins so I could minify the script. Performance is great across the board - physics bottlenecks way before sprite count.

I'll write my post up as a tutorial next week :)

@thehen Your graphics really are beautiful and your up-scaling of sprites to make them out of focus really is a revelation.

The thing I don't understand is (and I read Tom's blog) that while using lots of small images saves a great deal of memory, doesn't it cause massive overdraw issues? How well does this method work on mobile, where it's best to keep to a 3-draw limit?

If a background layer is overdrawn but stays static, is it redrawn every tick or held in memory as 1 image? Maybe @Arima will be able to help answer this. Thanks
