Hi there! Just started playing with impactJS and its super cool!! How would one go about making a side scroller map that can continually scroll left or right as the player runs to either side? Im not sure how to build the map etc?

Work through the tutorial below. It will give you an understanding of the process of creating a game in Impact.

It sounds like you'd be interested in the section on customising the camera. This is where you'd make the camera scroll with the player.

Also lok at the drop source code if you want to generate the map dynamically.

Thanks for the replies! I will go through that now and see if I can get it done.

I think I might not have explained my self well. I have done that type of tutorial allready. But what I want to do is make a game that scrolls to either side unlimited. So there is no end to the map, left or right. Does this make sense?

Yeah, as palh said it's similar to the drop source code except horizontal. You have to dynamically generate the map so take a look at drop source code and manipulate it.
