OMG why did you bump a 4 years old thread?
Does it matter? As a newbie C2 user i search the forum for help and ideas and i guess other new users would someday arrive to this places so why not post my feelings and impressions?
By the way i finally decided to use in my game what brunopalermo suggested, tiledbackground and it's fine.
Other displays in my game are animated sprites, i was thinking about to make also animated lives but finally i liked the result with tiledbackgrounds. I guess if somebody wants to create animated lives could create as many objet sprites as lives and placed at a X fixed position +sprite.width*numberOfLive, i do this in most BASIC languajes using loops but not able to do in C2 yet
