Animated client main menu background

One thing to note here is that using such huge maps as backgrounds will increase your client's memory usage by a lot, since they are held uncompressed in memory. This may cause lags at the start of the game.

Several months ago I made a tutorial about how to make custom backgrounds. After that, I tried to make a motion background and I found a way to do it. So here it is: I made a tutorial in order to teach you how to make your own moving background, even though I made this tutorial in February, I couldn't finish it because I forgot it. Today I decided to finish it and share it with you. I hope you can understand and enjoy it.

Cool, thanks for sharing, looks like a lot of work!

Since I don't trust mega to stay around for a few years I have uploaded the backgrounds on ddnet.tw:
