Graveyard Parallax BG

A simple parallax background I edited for my halloween level that I'm unsure I'll actually finish before halloween. Ignore the hole in the fence. Supposed to be a sizeable but removed for showing off the background.

Tileset is from witchkings pack and fog is drawn via lua.

The moon is also being parallaxed. Should your level be long you can change the "depth" setting in the ini file for the moon to be larger to accommodate for it to keep the moon in the background at all times. I normally never put up my horrible work but figured I'd do it for this one for halloween.

To use just plop the contents of the download into your level folder and choose the "SMB3 Hills" background. It won't show up in the editor but will in-game.

Just wondering, is there any way I can learn about using that fog effect? Is there a site I can find?

Yeah, here. https://wohlsoft.ru/pgewiki/Particles.lua

If you need the example I used in the gif then here.

Edit: Just noticed that onCameraUpdate has effect3 and effect4 in it. Pretend those say effect1 and effect2 instead. I had changed the effect numbers to make the example make more sense but forgot to change them for onCameraUpdate.

SMBX2 PAL comes with particles that can be loaded with, "local particles = API.load("particles")". No need to put a local copy in your world folder like I did here (although it's wise to just in case). However if you want a local copy you can find the particles API in the data/scripts/base directory in the PAL SMBX folder to copy and paste into your worlds folder.

Hopefully this was helpful to you.

No. 1.3 has been outdated for years now. It wont know what to do with these files.

It's only compatible with the new PAL version right now. If requested I can make it work with the 2.0 beta 3 version but I don't see a reason to right now.

Edit: Sorry I was half asleep when I wrote that. I'm awake now and noticed you asked about the fog, not the background.
Fog is drawn via lunalua so it's smbx 2.0 and up. There's an example I used in the gif in a post in a spoiler above for Megadood with links to instructions of how to make it work, feel free to use that. This particular background doesn't come with this fog effect as everyone's levels would be different lengths but you can use the example to edit it in yourself.
