Tile problem + resolution question

Hello,

I remember some time ago I could tile an actor across the screen and it would copy itself. When I try this now the actor becomes stretched even though I have tiled it horizontally and vertically. Anyone knows a solution?

Question:

  • Do I need graphics for retina exactly twice as big as the actor or is bigger than twice also ok?

    There should be no special format images need to be in to be tiled. I'm using the Mac version and Tiling still works correctly there. I wonder if it could be a bug in the PC version?

    Ideally the graphics would be 'twice as big' as the actor, smaller and bigger will both also work although the image quality will be compromised.

    I figured something out.

    Tiling works fine when I dont make the actor smaller. But when I make the actor smaller and then tile, Gamesalad doesnt shrink the original media file. See picture below.

    How can I shrink an actor and then tile it so the graphic will also be shrinked?

    I think the correct term is 'shrinkier' :p ;)
