Hi there - Brand new to the forum and the world of Construct 2. I have the free version of Construct 2 so I don't have access to the tileset bundle for the Jungle Platformer tutorial. I found some background images on Google and then followed the instructions to upload them onto the layout. After altering the image properties to have them be the same size as the layout, I ended up with 7 or 8 long duplicate strips of the image stacked one on top of another instead of just one big image of the background. I'm sure I am just missing something incredibly obvious. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Did you use tiled background object?
(be sure to use Ruskul if you respond or I won't see the post!)
Thanks for the quick reply. Yes, I did use the tiled background object.
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Basically, if you resize the tiled background to be larger than the original image, it will begin tiling it. If you don't want it tiled like that, then you have to use a regular sprite. It can be resized however you want.
Ah, ok. So just so I know I'm hearing you right. For an image that you want to scale up but do not want tiled, use a sprite object?
yep! The tiled object renders the image as is (though it needs to be square and be 8x8, 16x16, 32x32... and so on)
Thanks a lot! Mystery solved.
