Background Graphics (SOLVED)


Is there a tutorial on how to add non-functional background graphics like a rainbow or similar? I need a tutorial instead of the official manuals as I just can’t understand them no matter how many times I read them.


Have you checked this project:

It contains some background graphics for example. Maybe that can give you some inspiration?


I found the solution by looking at the Platformer Tutorial: create an atlas, add an image to that atlas. In a game collection add a game object and then a sprite that refers to that image. Sometimes it takes time to get the logics of new editors, languages and so on. Previous tools can be a burden as they can affect how you try to use the next tools.


Glad you figured it out! You should definitely also check out our examples section, if you already haven’t. They contain a lot of discrete examples which are great for getting the hang of Defold.
