2 way scrolling in Side Scrolling Core

Post by slobu » Mon Jun 10, 2019 6:28 pm

I am aware of the disclaimer "you can do it but there will be bugs"

I was wondering about other peoples experience enabling both left and right scrolling. Any gotchas and any workarounds for said gotchas.

My only repeatable gotcha is the player getting stuck when getting 7 blocks (2x2 tile blocks) close to the overworld/underworld border. I mitigate this by always putting a 8 block wall before the end of the screen.

Sometimes there's a shearing effect where a horizontal column of blocks does not get displayed (but the collision map is working). Dunno how to solve that as it happens infrequently.

Not sure if this is the right section either. Any input would be appreciated :)

I appreciate the reply! I haven't yet tried your suggestion but I figured I'd at least say thank you.

Also, on an unrelated note, I'll be checking out your projectile tutorial.

One other idea I had is trying slower horizontal movements and see if the problem gets better.
