Re: How to do pixelart? Any tool???

I use GraphicsGale and wrote a converter to animation structures in C. I start off with a set of colors or palettes and work from there.

Re: A question about calculating visibilty

Thanks DJ, How are you determining when to update them? * Are you checking each frame whether they are visible and therefore whether they need to be updated? * Are you checking only if the camera has moved (but still for each move)? * Or are you using some other method to cull the list of checks to...

Re: A question about calculating visibilty

Sounds like a good start. Because you can go back and forth, when preparing to spawn an object you'll have to add an extra check to see that the object doesn't exist already.

Re: pause a sprite?

give the animation a loop variable. 1 means loop and 0 means don't loop. When you're incrementing the frame index, add a check: if it reaches the last frame and the loop variable is 0, then don't increment. It'll stay at the last frame.

It's not the fact that it was closed for a week. It's the reason why it was closed that got everyone concerned.

Re: Future of SpritesMind

I think it's clear that people are concerned about the stability of the forum. It's a fantastic resource that nobody wants gone. It's where I learned to do Genny dev. But if it goes down because of heightened emotions between users then it significantly erodes the other members' trust. You need mode...

Re: Scrolling Map Demo

I think he meant the case where the scroll increment in a frame would be greater than 8 pixels, making it skip a row and leaving a hole.
