Thanks for the response Cross,
Thats unfortunate - The current way to achieve a simple *continuous* scrolling background is a bit involved.
(Edit: This is not actually true, You can do it in one simple event)
I wonder if this is on the to do list (if it is its probably in the unimportant section).
Even if I did put 3 blocks together, unless the block exits the layout there wouldnt be a way for me the get it back in place would there?
(I only found 1 example of a continuous scrolling background - using two images, i played around with it but i couldnt get the image to appear half way into the screen for instance, it always needed to exit and enter from the edge of the layout).
