I'm starting out a small 2d game and I need to know what to do about the road sprite.
Should it be a one piece image? or should it be divided into small pieces? and how high should the road be for a "racing car game"?
Usually the way this is done is to have a single sprite that you repeatedly draw in a vertical stack. So the sprite would be about as tall as one "stripe" on the road plus one "blank space" between stripes, if that makes sense. Then you just draw that several times, each copy going below the one above it, and you have the complete screen.
