I'm interested in creating a side-scroller Monster truck style game for the PC. I want to write everything from scratch, so using the Box2d isn't an option. I know it's a big project for a beginner, but I've always wanted to do this.
I know I'll need gravity, pixel-perfect collision, scrolling, and the use of acceleration for the vehicle.
This will be my first real game so, I'm a bit stumped as to how it all works together.
A couple problems I see with gravity is factoring in the center of mass, to get the truck to rotate as it falls, and accelerating up ramps and such.
I was able to load the sprite/background, but it only moves one pixel at a time.
Any help will be greatly appreciated, just to get me pointed in the right direction.
