Hey, I'm trying to do this on version 4.1.5, but for some reaon the scripts seem to be a little different? Like, I can't find any of the reffered code at all. What's up with that?
So I'm on vacation and didn't bring my laptop with me. i have also was switching stuff over to my desktop because my laptop has been acting up and was planning to use remote destop to see if i could squeeze in some work while i am away, but I forgot to transfer over some files. What i'm saying is that it will be a bit dificult to help til i get back on Sunday. That said, i dont remember having issues remiplenting this in 4.1.5, but this was during the byte off, and i was in a rush, so i don't remember everything i did. I'll attach my most recent code for the macro. It's a little cumbersome to check to see if it is different at the moment, sorry. I think you should be able to call the macro in the pre-draw script (which can easily be accessed in the script settings in 4.1) and you should be pretty much good to go.
Code: Select all

iirc the main difference is that the tranpoline for the macro to work has to be set in bank14.asm instead of HandleUpdateObjects.asm
"what are you up to?" "Oh, not much... just... Parallaxing"
i got this to work but i have a problem where after i die or get a health power up i cant get it to refill. any help would be appreciated. thanks
Hm, that's weird. The health bar should update automatically depending on whatever value your health currently is. If I understand you correctly, the health bar is working correctly when the player gets damaged and health goes down? Can I see your health pick up code? Can you confirm if your health variable is actually getting updated?
Thanks for the reply i got it working it was my mistake.
