Hi guys, and yes I've read the ultimate background system object tutorial before (very helpful!)
The thing is, I've not used MMF2's layers at all yet and I've heard that this is the best way to make some cool parallax scrolling effects. Any idea on where I'd learn more about doing it this way? Or if it's the best way in MMF2?

I found thats it's actually easier to use active picture object for parallax in Lil' pirate. Although the only reason i chose that was to load objects from a file.
I don't think using MMF2 layers specifically for parallax is the best idea. Active picture objects are more versatile and easier to organise.

Layers are a hell of a lot more flexible then the extremely slight performance drop might make them seem worth. Animations, multiple objects on multiple layers. It's all just a lot cleaner to work with, and make the process of designing the game, far more efficient.
