Thank you for your reply.  I'll keep that in mind.

Don't worry, I promise I wont post a million questions...

2  Java Game APIs & Engines / Java 2D / side-scroller help on: 2012-02-27 03:34:58
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.

Thank you... Smiley
