Parallax Scrolling Doesn't seem to work for me...

Postby boylie » Tue Nov 17, 2009 6:35 pm

Hey guys,

I've been trying to get parallax scrolling using the help found here and here, but it doesn't seem to be working for me. I've made a movie clip, drew a rough background, and added the following code to the frame this item is on: MovieClip(parent).parscroll = this.

This movie clip was put on the main timeline, right under the movieclip for level one, but it doesn't work when I test it out. Can anyone help me figure out what's going on?

Thanks in advance!

Sorry for the long delay boylie (also welcome to the forum :))

in the latest version of Edward you shouldn't need to code it at all (the first link you posted was a mod of an older version of edward).

it should just be a case of:
1) drawing your background on the main timeline,
2) make it a movie clip,
3) then drag the '! Parralax' part movie clip from the library into your backround movie clip's timeline (its in the 'Level Parts' > '! Unique Parts' folder)

if that still doesent work send me your .fla and I'll see if I cant figure out what the problem is :)
