    Parallax Movement Effect for sidescroller game

    Hello! Making a game and i want to create some depth in the background.

    I have 1 background for the game.

    Infront of that background i have a "middle background" with trees and stuff.

    And infront of that background i have the plane where the character is walking.

    I want to make so whenever the characters._x is either raising or getting lower then the background assets (the middle background) will also move in the same direction but with a lower speed than the character.

    Any kind soul out there that can figure out the code for that?

    I'm using Actionscript 2.0

    I can't think too much right now..but maybe when you move you character towards a direction, you can set a variable like var direction to "right" or "lef" or whatever direction, and also the var speed. Then to your background, if(direction == "right") background._x+= speed - 10; (where 10 is the substraction of the character speed so the background runs with a slower speed). Maybe that works for you, see you by
    Already mastering AS3. It was so fun. Now into Javascript and PHP and all its libraries
