Some Background Layers from PB
« on: June 13, 2018, 06:29:09 PM »
Hi everyone,


With the new feature in 5.2 Pro, you are able to use layers with custom backgrounds. I have already been using layers with many of the build-in backgrounds, giving it that effect of depth as the different layers move at different speeds across the game. This would be what you call "parallax" backgrounds.


Anyway, I'm leaving some of the backgrounds layers of PB so that you can change them up, add different colors, or whatever for your custom backgrounds. Not every background is included because I don't have the rights to distribute all of PB's backgrounds. These are all backgrounds that I made myself (with the exception of the one with the trees and distant mountains - that was free from gameart2d.com)

Yeah, I remember you wanting to change the sky in the forest background. Personally I like the greenish background - it seems to set a certain mood to the foresty feel.

I'm changing it already! The issue is that when I change it to blue, it turns black once you go high enough.

The background color is determined by the top-left pixel of the base image, that is, the layer in the far back. The trees are kind of a weird background because the image with the sky does not go to the far back. The black is probably coming from the transparency of the layer which is farthest back.

You know, it would be nice if you had a zip version.
