I know c++ so i was thinking of making it with directx but since I am a total noob in game development i really don't know where to start.
What is the neccesary knowledge for a tile based rpg that looks like final fantasy series or anything you could create with rpg maker??
And also what would be the estimated development time for this kind of game.?
I found a couple of books that I think could help:
-Beggining game programming with directx
-programming 2d games
-advanced 2d game development
-programming role playing games with directx
-programming a rts with direct3d
-simulation and event modeling.
If there is anything I need that would be a better source of knowledge, a tutorial or anything that this material doesn't cover please make a list.
(This includes any tool to create sprites like photoshop or any tool and any model or whatever I could need)
Also say If you know of a better way to do it than with directx (keep in mind I would like a pro looking 2d rpg, something like the last version of ff iv (complete collection)
