Hello, I'm working on a game pre-title intro and I have the plugins that manage that aspect but I am having little understand on how to use the picture functions.

I realize show picture is for displaying an image initially and moving is for re-positioning it. But the coordinates and image sizes makes things difficult to understand for me.

For example If I wanted to slide images across the screen, fairly long images mind you, how exactly can I coordinate it properly and to also take map sizes into consideration, I'm sure there may be a visual guide or something out there but I'm convinced the community here might be able to help me.

it really depends.

show picture: draw picture to x ,y position
move picture: move picture from x, y to new x, y
rotate picture: rotate the picture.

scale x, y picture is you want to make it bigger or smaller
usefull from center scale 0, 0 to 100%, 100% original size.

there are also some tutorial online to show you what you can do with it.

Just to further ask while I research this:


Error
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read properly 'setDimensions' of null

Does anyone know what this even means?
It's completely random, sometimes when I play test this crashes the game but sometimes it doesn't happen at all and carries on like normal.

I'm not sure what you are asking me.
I can place events fine it's just sometimes I get this annoying crash error popup.

You can search for a screen coordinates finder.

Backup tip: If you don't want to back up your whole project every day, at least back up everything *except* your Image and Audio folders, which you can do weekly/as needed/etc.
