Hm, ok. This isn’t perfect but I’m on my way to “getting it”. I originally was lacking the setContentSize call, so content size was 0 and there was no need to show the image.
The CCRect inset params are the X location of the stretching pixel, the Y location of the stretching pixel, a number that’s not 0 because it was playing up * 2.
@ CCScale9Sprite *bgQuestion = CCScale9Sprite::create(“bg_question.png”, CCRectZero, CCRect(208.75f, 211.25f, 0.01f, 0.01f));
bgQuestion~~>setPosition(ccp(winSize.width / 2.0f, winSize.height / 2.0f));@
If anyone has suggestions on how to improve this (I’m guessing the cap insets are way off what they should be) let me know! I’m still fiddling but thought I’d post in case someone finds this later in same position I was.
