If Mode-7 only allows 1 background, how was I able to get 2 layers?

Anybody who can answer this question correctly will receive the superpower of turning homeless people into ninjas.

I've never heard of mode 7 (I' assuming your doing this on the SNES) could only do one layer. And I know you can plaster extra non mode 7 layers with mode 7 active. Fzero proves that.

Technically, Mode7 is a sprite, not a BG anyways, so you should still have BG with mode 7, and enough sprites left over for a bunch of other stuff.

I know how you did it, but I'll let other non-coders guess ;)

Offset per tile mode + horizontal line scrolling with HDMA ? ;)

 

Very similar to what you can see here (Gynoug on MD) :

 

Except you can have different V Cell scrolling on both plans on the MD (we can see it in Gynoug level 5) while on SNES the 2 plans share the same V Offset per tile if i remember correctly, am i right ?
