  • Hey Floppi,

    use Position X to ViewportLeft("LayerNameOfObjectYouAreReferencing") + Whatever you want as a padding

    and Position Y to ViewportTop("LayerNameOfObjectYouAreReferencing") + Whatever you want as a padding

    Hope that helps!

    Check out the documentation on how to use ViewportTop etc. aswell.

    Its an amazing thing I didn't know of.

    Extra Tip. When positioning something to the right or even the center: always start of the ViewportLeft! This has proven to me to be the most accurate way for responsive layouting.

    Examples:

    Position X to ViewportLeft("LayerName")+ViewportRight("LayerName") would position something to the absolute right side horizontally.

    Position X to ViewportLeft("LayerName")+ViewportRight("LayerName") would always position something to the center of your screen horizontally.

    Cheers!

  • Or...

    You can put the counter on its own layer and change the Parallax properties of that layer to 0% x 0%.

  • Oh yes, I thought thats given :D sorrey!

    What Lancifer says is great!

    1. Put it on its own Layer

    2. Parallax to 0

    3. but then I recommend still doing Positioning using Viewport though

    Hope it works :)

  • Thank you very much this worked perfectly.

    Yeah, this is the typical way. All my projects, I have a "GUI" layer at the top of all layers, with 0 Parallaxing. All text, and GUI elements go on that layer, so it moves along with the rest of the gameplay, as the Camera/Viewport does it's thing.
