Hi I am making a side scrolling game for like the ones in the old arcade games. I am having some trouble making the background scroll if anyone could give me some code to make my background move from left to right. I am using VB8 and I am a novice at coding so please make the code easy to understand.

If you are novice programmer, you are maybe 'byte-ing' of a 'bit' much to start with...........

I know that but its a school project and i need to get the marks and I learn really quickly as long as everything has comments or show what part does what.

I have been coding for 3 years: does that mean I am a novice I don't know.

After three years you should not consider yourself a novice.

Ok so I am not a novice anymore yay. I just thought more like 5 years would be when you are no longer classed as a novice.

Perhaps you should consider what the word 'answer' means before pressing it to reply to yourself. To move your background, just draw it from a different starting point, so that it appears to move. You'd do better to use XNA, Winforms is NOT a framework suitable for writing games, your game will look bad at some point due to buffering issues, or something else where you're just using the wrong tool for the job.

Yeah I know I realized that after I had clicked post. Sorry. It was my first time ever posting something on a forum website.
