In Topic: Some help with creating a Street Fighter style Beat Em' Up game?

Yesterday, 11:43 PM

Trying to do a more "complex game" as your first project may not be the best thing. Most folks end up getting very frustrated and than quitting .

 I would highly recommend reading THIS free book and doing all programming exercises it has in it .


 To answer your question ... there is a third party library for Python called PyGame - you still need to have a very good understanding of how to code before using it.

In Topic: How would I go about developing a console like ps1 or n64

Most folks in this forum support the ideal of  "Knowledge should be free" .

 To program an emulator, you must know what type of system the games were written for, and EXACTLY how the system and game interacted .

This takes a lot of knowledge of hardware, firmware, and software.


Learning each system can take months of study ... for example HERE is the basics of the guts of an N64 .

Of course there can be "shortcuts" if you know exactly how the games were codded ... another N64 example .

In Topic: MAKE A CHOICE engines

Being able to write basic programs is a requirement, regardless of what game engine you use.

 If you are new to programming, I recommend reading THIS and THIS free book.


Once you have the basics of programming, the most "new to programming" friendly engine I know is ALICE 3D .

In Topic: Rendering sprite on isometric tilemap (LibGDX)

ISO maps have the exact same grid layout as a normal 2D map. Grid placement is calculated the exact same. Only difference is the map tiles are rotated using something like


 Depending on WHICH way you rotate the image ( and what degree ) will determine the sprite offset.

If you rotate all your images positive 45d, your offset would be ( ( tile width / 2 ) * 1.414 ),  while height is not affected . Grid position is not affected by offset .


 If you do not know how to set up grids, it would be in your best interest to try to create a simple 2D map ( without 3rd party libraries ) before attempting ISO maps again .
