Hey guys, so I'm going to be making a 2d RPG game that plays a lot like Zelda and Final Fantasy. There will be 4 dungeons/levels where you receive essential items like you would in Zelda, but in major boss/mini boss fights you would play a mixture of Fire Emblem/FF turn-based battles .I'm not 100% sure what I should use to make the game though... I have LWJGL downloaded, although I would rather use Java2d because I am much more fond of it. Somebody suggested I use Slick2d because it's syntax is closer to that of Java2d, but I'm not so sure. Anyways, here is a list of questions that I need to know:
- How do I make the character's world? Should I dl a tile-editor engine or something of that sort? And are there any other plugins that I should know of?
- How should I load and read sprite sheets and load them for characters?
- How should I go about making a save file and loading it again?
Any other suggestions would be appreciated! As you guys can tell, I'm new to the java game developing, but I reeeaaaally can't wait to see how this game turns out. Thanks
