Scale sprites with repeating instead of stretching
« on: July 19, 2013, 09:30:16 am »
Hi. I'm new in SFML, but have experience in OpenGL.
Well... Is there a way to fill background with some sprite in SFML v1.6?

For example sprite size is 512x512, screen size is 1024x768.

If I resize it to screen size, the texture coordinates will still be the (0, 0) - (1, 1) and the sprite streches.
How can I resize sprite with changing texture coordinates to (0, 0) - (2, 1.5) to fill all the background without "for" statements etc.?

I've read about sf::RenderTexture and method setRepeated(bool), but it is in SFML v2.0

This is not possible with SFML 1.6. But you should seriously consider switching to SFML 2.0.

Sorry, but how to use it?

I'm doing this:

BackgroundTexture.loadFromFile("data/img/gui/mainmenu/bg.jpg");
BackgroundTexture.setRepeated(true);
Background.setSize(sf::Vector2f(1024,768));
Background.setTexture(&BackgroundTexture);

but the image is still scaling instead of repeating
