Managed to create my own parallax backgrounds for my castle tower maps. I created some maps of the same size, filled them with trees, grass and river.. took a screnshots and apply blur in an image editor.. looks remarkably good.
Worked on my project for a few hours last night, having to rebalance everything on account of new skills has been... interesting. The battles definitely feel a lot more interesting now with lots of choices and stuff
I just successfully tested changing music by region, and changing it between continents on the world map after getting on/off the airship. I had to override the default audio transitions with eventing to make it change smoothly but it worked.
