Just getting started with AppGameKit today, and I'm loving it so far.

I'm used to DBPro, where you'd just position images at say:


Then you could move the "view"around as you pleased.

In AppGameKit I'm really impressed with the simplicity of the Box2D system and I want to make a dead simple platformer that uses it.

But I don't want to interfere with the sprite co-ordinates, I want to let the physics solver deal with that (as I think I'm supposed to).

So my question is, how do we move the "view" when using box physics?

Please, point me to another thread if this is a common question- I couldn't see anything on here.
I wish I could change my forum name. I\'m not a company, and I\'m not 14 anymore. *sigh*

Have a look at SetViewOffset()
SetViewZoom() as well if you want to zoom in out

FixSpriteToScreen() for your HUD stuff

No way! I didn't expect it to be built in! Thank you.
