Scrolling Broken?

  • #1, by brut69Saturday, 20. May 2017, 12:52 3 years ago
    Few questions: 

    I migrated from 4 to 5 and I am having trouble since it seems the way Scrolling works is different

    *Update*

    If the mouse cursor or Scroll reaches the Bottom or Right border (it only does it on those 2) of the image it gets stuck there and it stays focused on that area regardless of what the characters or player does. Ex: If the scene starts in the center , I can scroll everywhere I want but if it touches the bottom OR the Right edge of the map then it stays there.

    Only way to fix it is to minimize the game and return to it

    Tried New Game --> Same results

    It does it with every single scene I have 

    I tried building the game and testing it -->  Same results

    Smoothscrolling OFF -> Same results

    It fixes it self if the player minimizes the game and return to it but it will do it again once the player reach a corner again.



    Game in V5 -> See above problem
    Game in V4 works perfectly

    Well it ain't working for me so Version 5 literally breaks my game since If I can't scroll while walking then it is unplayable.

    I just removed all the scrolling , all the Center on Character etc and it still wont follow the character around (main character)

    I even Changed Character back and forth to reset it and it won't follow either...

    Started New - Created a new wide scene - Added 2 characters - Played -> Scene will scroll while only one character on screen , then once 1st character reach 2nd character then it will stop scrolling.
    This is... frustruating

    I also have 2 chars always on screen and am able to scroll the screen. 
    The only thing i have not tested is that the scene is so wide that only one character is on scene at some point.

    This will not fix the problem though razz
    If you consider upgrading in some time it would be great to provide as much information as possible. Maybe you could provide you new started project with the test environment to the devs so they can have a look at it =)

    I know that it is not a fix but  even though I really like the smoother feel of V5 it scares me away if I can not fix/debug something as simple as scrolling (Which works flawlessly on V4)
    I will try to upload the empty game but my characters are quite big-ish so I will need to strip them down to single panels first

    Trying a second time....

    After an hour of save-run , I concluded that it has nothing to do with the characters.

    When I scroll on the far side (mostly right side) of the map/scene then it gets stuck there. 
    It is like the game does not want to scroll back to the main character. I tried Changing Character to another but still same. Just scrolling there with the mouse will get the game stuck on the right side and this happens with EVERY single scene that requires scrolling


    Tried Turning off "SmoothScrolling" but nothing

    This gets more confusing as I play with it...

    See on the video what it does.

    The female character I removed and no difference

    Before I go in the corner , the scrolling works somewhat fine (it must be able to also go UP but it wont let me) , once the character goes on the right corner or when the scroll reachs the end of the RIGHT side , it freezes the scrolling there and the only way to unfreeze it is to minimize the game and return to it. 

    The weird thing is that this happens only on the RIGHT side of the scenes!

    I am 99% sure this is an editor problem even though others do not seem to have it since I can't for the life of me understand what is causing it.
    Anyone else any thoughts or shall I just go back to 4 and be done with 5?
