Heya,

I'd like to show a picture that moves at the same speed as my parallax scrolling -- it's proving to be a bit of trial and error, so I was wondering if anyone knew offhand what the fps scroll rates are for each parallax scroll setting?

Thanks!! :LZSgrin:

parallax is a movement-based function, it doesn't have any fixed numbers.
I don't have the mathematics ready, but parallax speed is based on the relative size difference between map size and parallax picture size, as well as the movement speed of the player and a few other factors.

What you want can be done, but I don't think it is possible with events alone, simply because you cannot account for every possible speed. In my opinion there is a good chance that you'll need a plugin to provide a special command that reads out and calculates the required speed.

Thanks Andar, it's certainly possible to match parallax speed with Move Picture, it's just a matter of (lots and lots of) trial and error :) I appreciate the explanation though, that helps.

exactly as I mentioned, it can't be done by events alone, because events can't detect or calculate the speed on their own.
And I think it is better to have a plugin read and calclate the speed than wasting hours on trial and error if you have many such cases.

Sometimes I wonder why I still try and recruit others to help with my games. It never works.

welp, thanks to Luna MV, I was able to add the Balloon as a window... thus allowing me to edit the font color and outline... so now it looks like comic bubbles above characters. I have NO idea why I couldn't get this to work through more conventional means, but here we are.
