Anyone know how I shoudl go about making a side scrolling game such as the old NES game called "N.A.R.C."? I had an idea for a game using that method of play but i''m just not sure how to go about making it in the side scrolling form. Thanks in advance. WikedGamer

First of all, know how to program ^_^ if you posted what language you were thinking of using, you might also get more replies. But for general stuff, in order to make the screen scroll, you would have to have the play area larger than the screen resolution and then set a line or lines (usually in a loop) that when the player nears so many pixels from the edge of the screen, it scrolls.
