Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Sidescroller camera and player automatic movement

Hi there,

I am currently starting a sidescroller project, and all went pretty well so far. Although I am at the very start of the project, I stumbled upon a main question which affects the whole project.

I am aiming for a arcade like sidescroller game with automatically "scrolling" the level.

So the camera moves from start of the level to the end, no matter what the player is doing, BUT the player cannot exceed the cameras boundaries.

just like this here C64 Longplay - Katakis

or any other oldschool sidescroller game.

I know these old games simply scrolled the background pattern instead of scrolling through the level itself, but I do think it would make more sense to keep the player and camera constanly moving, or am I completely wrong here?
