I am making a sidescrolling platformer.
I have a background and when my character gets to the edge, I want the background to smoothly transition back to the beginning of the background.
I know I can make running backgrounds, but I have been working on this game for a while now, and hesitate to restart it just for the background. Is there any way to do this smoothly? or is the only option really to start over T_T?
for the sake of clarity:
1. My background is composed of 3 objects. The sky (same everywhere), 1 background building (different shapes) and middleground (normal buildings, 4 of the same buildings).
2. I have a "ground" object that the character walks on. The ground is shorter than my layout, so I just duplicate it.
I think I would be able to figure it out myself if my background was 1 piece, but it isn't so I'm asking you for help.
Thank you very much!
