Innocent Bystander





« Posted 2012-06-19 04:48:04 »

So I just completed the slick2d tutorials that bucky from the newboston on youtube uploaded. To make the character move he had the actual backround move on his game instead of the character. With this is don't see how I can expand on his code and try to add my own monsters. I am realizing that I will need a camera that follows the character. Can anyone point my in the right direction as how to create this camera.

With the kind of design your talking about EVERYTHING moves except for the character. You basically move the world (enemies, items, the map) around the player to make it look like the player is moving. So, move the enemies around independently, but when you move the map make sure you move the enemies by the same amount so the map doesn't move out from underneath them. For example, if you move the map 1 space to the right, you would move all the enemies one space to the right as well.

This doesn't belong to the Java2D forums, a mod should move this.
