Sheddy Posted August 8, 2003 Author Share Posted August 8, 2003 That scrolling ground / color cycling effect -- it is used in lots of forward scrolling classic games. How do you pull that off, Sheddy? Do you use DLI's and change the bg color on each? That's it exactly. Just DLIS changing the background colour. There's a very simple 3 frame loop animation on their positions to give the impression of forward movement and then the colours swap over to continue the illusion of movement - just like a disco light rope/chaser lights.......Hmm....That explanation sounds more complicated than it really is: Imagine something going from right to left instead, 000 and ||| are the colours: 000|||000|||000 00|||000|||000| 0|||000|||000|| ....swap colours |||000|||000||| ||000|||000|||0 |000|||000|||00 ....swap colours again 000|||000|||000 ....just keep on going!....
