Yep The Scrolling Gap.

I have a problem with the gaps in the scrolling BG. I cant seem to remedy it with the techniques explained on the forums. I was thinking it might be because its scrolling too fast? I have my scrolling stuff in the Ticking group and the conditions group.

Thanks Computer Friends.

Have you tried with a power-of-two texture? That might solve it.

Hey Squidster I changed them to 512's like a normal human being and I am still getting that popping gap. The only reason I can think it that there is too much crap going on at once and its processing things too slowly to make it seamless. i wonder if there is a method of keeping it exactly on the last ones butt.

ok rage meter reset. The problem still persists. I will look outside scirra forums to see if this is a delta time thing or game speed. searching... holler if anyone see the mistakes here.

Thanks internet friends!!!!

Ok I tested out Kyatrics scrolling demo with blue diamonds and sped it up. It seems that at a certain speed that gap starts rearing its ugly head. Smelling for other methods of scrolling gapless.

Fascinating.

(Just curious, why do you need it to scroll so fast? I'm sure many people would find it disorientating.)

EDIT: Just figured out it's for that love unicorn game. That's probably the most messed up thing I've ever seen . sqiddster2012-08-22 16:43:33

Perhaps this will help:
http://www.scirra.com/FORUM/wrap-alignment-issue_topic54943_post343000.html?KW=warp#343000

More specifically do this:
spr_Mountains x<=-768
---- spr_Mountains: set x to self.x+768*2

TiledBackground x<=-256
---- TiledBackground: set x to self.x+256*2

spr_Hills x<=-768
---- spr_Hills: set x to self.x+768*2

spr_Grass x<=-256
---- spr_Grass: set x to self.x+512*3
