@ PudgeCo: Thanks. I will try. I am very happy to see tutorial with source code. Now, I think I will make it.

Can I say one funny think, I am almost 17 years old now, and I am in computer School. We learn Java there. Well, but when I asked a professor, what  I need to made this kind of game, he didn't know Cheesy And than I register to this forum Cheesy

Well, I have got a "game" with some classes (Frame, Board, Enemy, Bullet, Dude). In Board class, I have got a method, to load a background (ImageIcon i = new ImageIcon ... )And it just work perfectly, but it is just background... (was making the game step by step with tutorial on Youtube. )

I looked at code in David Brackeen's book, but I don't understand it. There are "thousands" of classes, and a lot of them are almost equals. Are all of this even necessarily?  Maybe I will understand, if I will buy a book, but for now, there is no money for this. Sad I need just this, then, moving, collision, enemys and all other stuff are much more easier than this. So, can I please you something? If you know any site, with step by step tutorial, how to make very simple tile based game, can you please post the link of the website here? I was searching the web, but  I haven't found tutorial which explain how to create tile based game in java, step by step. Or if you know a site where I can download a source code of a simple tile based game, and than I will probably understand how to make this game. (But it have to work) Cheesy

Ow, and about error, which I mention some posts above. I was doing something very stupid. My code was a disaster from first to last line Cheesy I was laughing to myself.

Well thanks, I will write longer answer in Saturday evening, when I'll come home. I am not on my computer now. I will post the code and error, If It will not work. But I think now will work. It must work! =)

So, basically I need just 2 classes? (If I want just to draw a Map, with no enemy, no hero, no movement...)  One to draw a frame, and one to get a Map from map.txt, and draw it?

Well, thanks to both, now I understand better, but anyway, when I try to write this program, all it does is error Cheesy

Can somebody tell me, if this is the right idea:
 - I need 2 for loops, one for high of map, another for length of each row. Or something like that...
 - We check each number, letter or whatever it is, and we put corresponding image on the screen. I have to use (lots of) If statement?

Hello,

First, I apologize if I wrote a topic in the wrong place (You can move it) , and I also apologize for my bed English.


I started to learn GUI programming not so long ago. So far I've done a really basic 2d game. Nothing special. Background, 2 enemies, you have 10 bullets and you have to kill the enemies. If you touch the enemy, it is the end of the game. The character can move left, right, and you can jump once. However, in the "game" there are no barriers. So I searched the Internet, what would be the easiest way to make them. I found a way that it seems to me it is called "tile-based map" or. something like that. Ok, I said to myself, and I try this, but here I get stuck. I know I have to make .txt file, and then with the characters "draw" folder. Okay, but how do you read this folder, and a char replaced with an image?

And another question, how can I make this map so the figure can wake through the barriers? With Collision Detection, or something special?


BTW: It is not for homework.


Thanks!
