Where to find scrolling background examples?

Is there an example code somewhere of usage of scrolling background, like for usage in a jump and run type of game.
Or where should I look in the manual to learn about this?

Re: apk API version

Thanks for the tip. I guess you need the full version of the apk compiler to do this. I have the light version, and this option is grayed out for me. Also I am curious what is the default minimum android sdkversion when you dont use your modified script? And what is the oldest android version that t...

Re: How to detect if the program already is running?

I recently tried to run a program on LinuxArm on raspberry pi, and found that using CreatePort() to detect if the program is already running will not work. CreatePort() will produce an error regardless if the program is running or not.

Re: apk API version

Are there plans for an update?
Since august 2020 google play requires target API 29 for new projects.
API 28 is still allowed for updates until november.

Re: IsKeyDown hangup

Thanks, using raw keys will resolve this for the script I'm working on. But why it does hang up when rawkeys are not used and certain mulitple keys are pressed, that remains a mystery to me. With this in mind, I feel that the most safe way to use IsKeyDown is to always use the raw keys option, unles...

IsKeyDown hangup

This strange behaviour happens when pressing the shift key simultaniously with another key. I just tested on two different windows pc's, just to make sure it wasnt my laptop that was the problem. On my laptop it is very easy to reproduce it, on the desktop pc I need to give it some more tries to rep...

Re: CountJoysticks() reports one joystick to much

Is this consistent for all Amiga systems?
So that I can use a workaround by simply using -1 when an Amiga system is detected?

CountJoysticks() reports one joystick to much

When I query for joysticks on MorphOS CountJoysticks() will return 1 if no joysticks are connected, and reports 3 if 2 joysticks are present. I even tried to disconnect both mouse and keyboard to be sure they didnt interfere. Also in OS3.9 under WinUAE it does report 1 joystick present when none are...

maxchrs setting is ignored

I use stringrequest to get a numerical value, and I use maxchrs to limit the number of digits allowed. When running the program on Windows it works, I can only enter 1 digit. But running it on MorphOS or OS3 it seem to ignore the maxchrs setting, and accepts any numer of digits to be entered. Does t...
