Scrolling the Stage was a planned new feature of Scratch 2.0. It allowed for the Stage to be panned around, repeating the current scene, without creating a sprite for it. However, it was removed in the alpha version for unknown reasons.
This feature can be used in these ways:
- Creating a repetitive, movable background
- Simply moving the background
- Making the moving background bounce
|Note:||Due to the blocks "x scroll" and "y scroll" being outdated, they appear to be a variable in the Scratchblocks generator below.|
when gf clicked forever repeat until <(x scroll) > > scroll right (1) // category=motion end repeat until <(x scroll) <  > scroll right (-1) // category=motion end end when gf clicked forever repeat until <(y scroll) > > scroll up (1) // category=motion end repeat until <(y scroll) <  > scroll up (-1) // category=motion end end
This cannot replace a scrolling map.
Suggestions about scrolling
Multiple users have suggested blocks that would be used to scroll the stage in the suggestions forum. There have also been suggestions to have size blocks for the stage, allowing the background to be scaled up or down, similar to the size blocks for sprites.
