Hi all, nice to see there are still users of this beast of a tool!
Ok, so I have a weird question regarding aspect ratio padding.
I am planning out a vertical scrolling shooting game, however arcade games of this type have a narrow window size,
now, obviously if I just set the window size to this ratio, all is good, but if I go full screen on a 16:9 monitor, there is a lot of black space left and right of the window if it is displayed without stretching, which would look ridiculous, so was wondering if there was any way of adding some still image left and right of this so it looks something like this..
now, the problem lies with multiple 4:3 ratios and multiple resolutions, basically the most important thing is the play area and the side images are just there to fill dead space..
I imagine there is no way of doing this if my layout is just built to the window size, so, I am wondering if there is anyway of making sure my layout is centered over all resolutions....
Any advice is greatly appreciated as always!
