I have been playing a little with Melon JS and I really like it. I started with the platformer tutorial which works fine. Now I would like to add a parallax effect to the tile layers as well but I'm stuck. Here's what I tried so far:
1. Add the property "ratio" to the layer - OK it didn't work, it works for image layers only.
2. I have tried to update the layer's position like this:
var layer = me.game.world.getChildByName("Background1");
layer.pos.x = layer.pos.x + 1; // move the layer by one pixel
But it didn't work, the layer didn't move. Funny thing is, if I add a value, say 600, the layer disappears (I guess it's outside the viewport then). If I reset to 0 it appears back again. I can also flip it using layer.flipY(true); So something is working, but I cannot get it moving for some reason.
Any suggestions are well apreciated.
