Problem creating backgrounds for large screens.
« on: June 14, 2010, 22:35:17 »
I have a screen that is 2400x2400 and a 640x2400 looping background to match it.

Now what?

I tried putting it in Horizontal/Vertical/Other backgrounds but it still does not show. Checked for spelling errors but none to be found.

Where am I going wrong?

I have the Pre-release version of the editor if that matters.

Yes, that's not it. Thanks for the reply though :)

It's probably a graphics card hardware limitation. I don't think anything larger than 2048 pixels work, on some older cards it's 1024 or even lower.

Ah, I see.
I'll try and reduce the screen size then. Thank you :)

Make that 4096. Anything beyond that is not supported by any card I know of though.
I'm not sure about the behaviour though... I didn't know the graphics card would not create a texture at all.
