This variable determines if the current room's background colour should be drawn.



Returns: Boolean


When in a room, it can have no background image selected for any of its background_index, in which case you should set a background colour with the background_colour variable and make sure that it is visible by setting this variable is set to true. Having a room with no background image and no background colour will result in graphical artefacts being drawn on the screen and is not recommended.


if background_index[0] == -1
   background_colour = c_black;
   background_showcolour = true;

The above code checks to see if background0 has an image assigned to it and if not it sets the background colour to black and flags it to be shown.
