I really don't have much skills in the even sheet but i was wondering how do i make a background that keeps scrolling without me copying and pasting the background for a long time , i'm trying to make a doodle jump style game so the background has to scroll up please help???!?!?
Please check the How do I FAQ to the section "Scrolling / Camera", you should find examples answering your question.

First I would go through the tutorials about paralax, etc... you can set a tiled background and give it movement as well... that should get you on the right path...
I use infinite scrolling backgrounds all the time! :D
What I typically do is take a TiledBackground object and stretch to about 2 or 3 times the size of the screen.
Then I create some events that tell it to move at a certain speed (Set Background.Y to Self.Y * <Speed> * dt).
If it goes past a certain point (like 512 pixels away from its starting point) then it moves the BackGround object back to its starting point (If Background.Y is greater than <Background's starting y position + 512>, set y to its original position)
That's what I usually use! Hopefully, this will help!
Hello Zero6, does that lead to a visible jump or stutter in the background scrolling when you set it that way?
I found a way of doing it in the "How do I section" (I think that's where I found it). It uses a couple of global variables. You can see if this capx might help....Vertical Scrolling Background
hi.. I need help desperately. I'm currently very new at game making.. I want to make an infinite jump like doodle jump too.. but the How do I faq doesn't seem to solve my problems.. I currently have 2 problems
1st my high score box won't go with the sprite, 2nd, the background also won't go with the sprite as the sprite moves higher.. how do I make GUI for Infinite VERTICAL scrolling? tried to do it with the infinite jumping template..
If you guys are wondering about my capx, here it is..
Not sure about 2nd however 1st (high score) you just set it to scroll with your sprite/player.
I may not be the right person to say this.. <img src="smileys/smiley9.gif" border="0" align="middle" /> but to get more attention on your issue, you could have made your own thread <img src="smileys/smiley23.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
Hi Sulli! thanks for the fast reply! I managed to do it with with pin behavior! Yeah.. now my background and my high score pinned to my Char like GUI!
Thanks for your info.. but I think scroll to doesn't have the option to scroll with the player lol.. at first I was confused because there is only shake option in the scroll to behavior.
Now I can move on to my next objective!(which is power ups and obstacles) :)
Cool! PM me (click on my name) if you need help testing anything! Sound good.
Also if you reply use the ' Sulli ' thing otherwise i dont get a notification.. just by chance I saw your reply <img src="smileys/smiley9.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
