Backgrounds

Jump to: navigation, search
The background menu in game.

Backgrounds are a set of graphics that can be placed behind the tiles and other game objects in Mega Man Maker. Each screen can only have 1 background and with some backgrounds the colors of certain parts can be changed via the background color setting. Unlike the first 6 Mega Man games they are not made out of smaller tiles, which makes them much easier to place.
