[experiment/tutorial] Juni´s Paradise garden

Juni´s Paradise garden

Hi, this is just a single screen I put together using  screen
size images as custom objects so that Juni can walk behind
things.
Im sure this has been done before, but I included a tutorial
in the level showing how to change a background layer into
a foreground very quickly using just paint and notepad.
A lot more can be done with a good image editor, but the
tutorial was just to show how easily a basic but effective
foreground effect can be made
Enjoy, and I hope its helpful.

Brilliant, tremendously helpful, and awesome. (Awesmoe?) Hands-down the most beautiful tutorial -- for anything -- I've ever seen. Paradise indeed!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you thank you thank you.

I've been playing with some level ideas for which your full-screen CO method would work even better than the way I'd been considering doing it. Doing it more or less the same way might have occurred to me eventually, but if nothing else you saved me a tremendous amount of trial-and-error.

How do I give out stars? Because this clearly deserves one.

Not only to answer your question, but to give out a star as well, you type: then star then another : so :star:
Ooooops not right... Derp
Many a hand has scaled the grand old face of the plateau,
Some belong to strangers and some to folks you know,
Holy ghosts and talk show hosts are planted in the sand,
To beautify the foothills and shake the many hands.

Glad you liked it and found it useful,
With a image editor that supports proper transparency you
can do a lot more, I tried using a gradient transparency to
imitate light from street lamps, and it looked quite effective
as Juni gradually became visible as she entered the light and
invisible as she walked out of it.
Look forward to seeing your level Jack.
