Here you can define autoscrolling of target section.



- Don't forget to define target section size in the section properties of same event. If you wasn't redefine of section. autoscroll will not be working.

- If you want use autoscrolling in the original SMBX, be careful, because SMBX engine has a bug: Autoscroll will work only for one section and only if this section contains a start point of playable character and when event contains autoscrolling definition will be triggered via special "Level - Start" event. If you will try autoscroll another section, it will not work!

3) Set the number of section which will be autoscrolled and the speed X and speed Y values.
