Hello again. RandomDood with another random question.
I am using multiple layout objects to show parts of scenes from other layouts. However when I change the scrolling rate of the layers for those layouts, they don't scroll at the rate I set in the layout objects are using.
Can someone help me?
I remember the layout object didn't work so great/might have been buggy, can you give an example cap file?
I made this quick example which is pretty much the issue. I have 2 layouts, layout 1 has a layout object that displays layout 2. Layout 2 has 3 layers each with objects and different scroll X rates (the darker the object the lower the layer its on) Normally a layer with a lower scroll rate would move slower than the others, but it does not show this in layout 1 with the layout object.
Yeah, this looks like an issue in the layer object from what I can see. Is there any reason why you're using layer object to do this though? (eg: to re-use skyboxes?)
Multiple levels that are all interconnected. I was using the Layout object to display parts of different levels/layouts and their changes in real time. And that skybox thing isn't a bad idea either.
My area of practice is art so sometimes I can get a little obsessed with getting everything to look visually perfect.
Would anyone happen to know what formula or code the scrolling uses in the program? I could hard code the movements in directly as a work around.

You could instead do this for each object:
Start of layout: object.value('offsetX') = object.X - ScrollX
Always: Set object.X to ScrollX + object.value('offsetX')
And I think that'd scroll it as you move the screen, not sure as I haven't tested
