i know this has been asked a lot before but i dont know the answer but since it has been asked a lot before i HOPE i'll get an answer
so how do i do two player split screen with a scrolling background? i am using TGF 2 newgrounds edition so I don't think there are any fancy plug ins to help me but I think it can probably be done with LAYERS.
if you don't really know a solution let's just talk about it and discuss so maybe we can come up with something. k thx

Sub-apps aren't reliable anyway for an accurate 2-player experience. If you store players X/Y position, animation frame and direction data in Global Values across two cloned frames, there is a delay as the data is transferred across the two sub-app objects.
Does it absolutely have to be split screen? A nice alternative may be to zoom the game out so that the two players are always visible. When they become too tiny to see well, you fade a kind of circle over the top to show where they are.
