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"

Automatic/Continuous Background Scrolling in a 2D space shooter

I am making a 2d vertical scrolling space shooter and need some guidance. How would I be able to achieve a smooth vertical scroll of a level/map. I have created a Blank project, no starter content. I have also added a static camera and sample spaceship sprite.

I can't really progress forward without knowing being able to set up the vertical scrolling. Please help. As an example, heres a sample NES space shooter vertical scrolling game.

Hello akashvercetti,

I would suggest using a material and applying a panner to it. I have provided a link to documentation that could get you started. I hope that this information helps.

Make it a great day
