and to be honest... I totally want this on my phone now. :v:/>

I'm visualizing this on my Nexus 7, scrolling along with my home screens. That would be brilliant. I don't know the first thing about Android development, sadly.

I'm currently having an issue with Marble Zone, where some of the rows of clouds are at the bottom of the screen...

I'm having this too. Blame my 1080p display?

Yeah, now I've updated it to extend the sky vertically on screens taller than 1024 pixels.


I updated my screensaver folder with the latest archive and this still seems to be an issue for me. Anyone else?

Ok, so I admit that I don't know enough about basic computer use anymore. Unzipping a file and running programs used to be easy... but its not anymore. Anybody know where I go from here? Im using a Mac and I downloaded that Mono program that was suggested, my computer also has parallel so I have Windows running also.

How do I make this screensaver work?

You'll probably only be able to run it properly from a terminal.

To configure: mono SonicBGScrollSaver.scr
To run: mono SonicBGScrollSaver.scr /s

Of course, you won't be able to do anything until you download and extract some levels into that folder.

Hey, it's been a while, but I got two new levels done: Hill Top Zone and Wing Fortress Zone.

I have no plans to do Metropolis Zone, because the scrolling is extremely basic and the animated tiles make implementation very complicated, and Sky Chase Zone is not happening because the background is impossible to extend vertically, so essentially I have now finished all of Sonic 2's levels.

Sadly, S3K levels are probably not happening soon, because the disassembly is not very well documented, and a lot of S3K's levels use tile reloading for fake layers, and look at how long HTZ took me to figure out (and I had to have MarkeyJester help me with it). SCD levels would require a good disassembly.

Didn't you use to just upscale backgrounds like SCZ? You know, zoom them in so you didn't have to extend them?

If every possible resolution was an exact multiple of the background's size, that would work. Otherwise I'd have to round up and crop out part.
