Parallax background with Tileset Image Layer


Recommended Posts

Is this at all possible?


I originally managed to achieve the effect when I loaded in the background as one single image.


But now I'm using tilemaps and adding to a layer with addTilesetImage I can't seem to get any movement there.


It's just a simple 


x -= 0.5; //When moving right

x += 0.5; //When moving left



Here's how I'm currently loading the background layer:

game.load.image('sky', 'assets/parallax-bg.png');

game.load.tilemap('map', 'assets/tilemaps/level1.json', null, Phaser.Tilemap.TILED_JSON);

this.map = this.add.tilemap('map');

this.map.addTilesetImage('background_spritesheet', 'sky');
bgtile = this.map.createLayer('backgroundLayer');



Then I've tried the following in the update() within my if(cursors.left.isDown) to try and get some movement
bgtile.tilePosition.x += 0.5;


Oh, and here's a link of the WIP if anyone's interested!
