Any idea on how to make a BG follow the player on from side to side, not up and down?

I wan't it to automatically follow the player (not from when I move left to write with controls). Only Left to Write, NOT Up & Down

Some help and ideas would be nice, thanks.

you mean the background will only move when your player move ?

do this for the BG: set_pos(Vector2(yourplayernode.getX(), yourplayernode.getY()))

@Phil88n you are setting both X and Y, that won't work as intented. That will actually stick the background behind the player and not make it scroll at all.

The platformer demo does this, its background only moves horizontally and not vertically.
If you are using ParallaxBackground, try to set Base Scale Y to zero?
