Hi all ,
Im new to game programming and just finished my first side shooter using Allegro .
Now i want to goto something more complex like a mario style side scroller .
How do I actually go about it ? In the game I implemented , all the characters and sprites were in one fixed window which didnt move . How do I do a dynammically moving screen in which sprites come as the player moves forward. Do I simply check the x-axis value and spawn characters based on it or is there some other more elegant method ?
Any help would be appreciated
