Hey, I searched on YouTube for "Slick2D Lesson" and I found a series of tutorials, but I then found out that it was only 4 parts and the gap inbetween the videos was 1 - 2 weeks, and I really can't wait that long to learn.

From those 4 videos, I've made a pretty complete Pong game from my past Java knowledge and playing around with it. I still feel this isn't enough for me to move onto more 'advanced' things.

Does anyone have a complete series of lessons/tutorials for Slick2D? I would like to know most of the basics, since I only know how to draw shapes and text onto the screen.

Thanks a bunch, I hope to help out some newbies here soon when I'm a bit more advanced Cheesy

There are some tutorials on the Slick2D Wiki.

However IMO one of the nicest ways to learn Slick2D is to look at the test examples included with Slick2D. You can find these inside the download bundle in the folder "src\org\newdawn\slick\tests", they're small clean single file examples and cover almost every aspect and feature of Slick2D.

This one is fairly good to get you started with animation, keyboard input and animations

And as Kappa mentioned, these tutorials are great for teaching you a decent approach to handling game states (menu, options, game etc) and a good game layout for slick. Though be warned their are some errors in the code  Undecided

As above, you should just check out the Slick2D wiki and the creator's blog; as they will contain more information about the library than an external source.  Tongue
