1  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Where to start? - RPG Zelda/FF like game on: 2012-04-09 03:29:31
Yeah I agree; I should probably start on a simpler basis. I'm probably not going to start the game right away then, and rather start with small, little dummy RPG games of my preferred type. However, it'd be nice if I could work backwards and figure out what I eventually need to know. I just learned how to load sprites and animate them with a BufferedImage, which was pretty cool and useful. I just don't want to learn things the wrong way in the beginning and struggle to learn the ideal way when i become a better coder (ie i know it's horrible to hard-code your map, etc).
2  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Where to start? - RPG Zelda/FF like game on: 2012-04-08 09:35:45
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 Cheesy
