By the end of this video, learn to use and render the background.
- Hello.…Welcome to the last video of this section,…Using The Background.…Previously, we looked at creating…a randomly generated scrolling background.…In this video, we will first create a VertexArray…and then initialize it after leveling up each wave.…Finally, we will draw it in each frame.…So let us start by adding the code highlighted here…to declare a VertexArray called background.…First we create a VertexArray called background.…And then we create an object of type texture…called textureBackground.…
After this we will know the…background_sheet.png as a texture.…Next we add this code…to call the create background function.…Passing in background as a reference,…and arena by value.…Notice in the highlighted code that we have also…modified the way that we initialize the tile size variable.…You need to add the highlighted code…exactly as we did it here.…Note we have replaced the int tileSize = 50…line of code because we get the value directly…from the return value of create background function.…
For the sake of future code clarity,…
