I decided to upload the whole project. Here is the link: http://jeanpascal.de/Picross.zip
To get to the scene, just launch the projekt and click on “Load Level 1”, the bricks which fading in are our small friends.
To see the behavior of them when i do NOT scale their positions, just changes the lines in scenes/LevelScene.qml:209-210 to a static value of 44.
If you want to see that Recangles work correctly with these static values you have to change the entity lines in entities/Brick.qml:35-41 to a simple Recangle component with the id “sprite”. The PropertyChanges settings of the entity may brake then, but i guess you can just remove them for testing.
And please let me know when you have downloaded the archive, i would like to remove it again.
