Tiled Background object

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Tue Jul 16, 2013 4:37 am

i want to use The Tiled Background object, to create a tiled board similar to a chess board (alternating colors, or patterns repeated over a fixed size board).

the example in the online manual (here: https://www.scirra.com/manual/118/tiled-background) has the same star-pattern repeating again and again (not an alternating pattern).

My question is this: is it possible to use the tiled background object to do what i want (if so how), or shall i "code" the logic using C2's existing behaviors, etc.

does anyone know/have an example they'd like to share?

thanks a million, in advance.

Using a tiled background with a texture made up of a group of 4 squares should accomplish the effect you're looking for. Something like this:

i didn't even think about that! simple yet awesome: just combine the different color/patterns into a larger "tile" and then tile that over and over. great thanks zatyka, i really appreciate your help :-)
