Recommended Posts

can anybody give me a link or something about creating drawing functions? I'm having trouble figuring it out. I'm making these for a small 2d engine im creating. I need to be able to draw lines and such to the screen, but how to do this I havent found out.

Have you selected a programming language to write your engine in? If you have, you just need to select a graphics library or API. Most have ample documentation. If you let us know what language you are using, we can point you to some available libraries.

Also, what else do you need to draw to the screen? Just lines and points? Static images? Animated images?

If you give us a little more info (what language you are using, what your requirements are, etc.), I'm sure we can give you some advice and point you in the right direction.

As a side note - and I don't mean to derail your project - I would advise that you not worry about an engine just yet (or really, ever, for that matter).
