Scale offset
« on: June 22, 2021, 09:50:57 pm »
Whenever I have tried to scale a sprite, it offsets down slightly. It doesn't move left or right, but it's position is lower that it should be (greater y value). I have no idea why. Would appreciate an explanation as to what I'm doing wrong.

sprite.setScale(CATAPULT_SCALING_FRACTION);

Scaling as any other transformation happens around/from the origin.
If your origin is set to the middle of the sprite, it will expand equally in all direction.
If your origin is set to the top left corner (default), then it will scale in the bottom right direction.
