Don't have a scanner, anyone one want to see some 8 bit shit for a game I'm planning?

Got any questions, just ask!

love this shit

Do you plan on spriting for somebody, or making games all by yourself? (indie development)
#18740 to #18739 - evilwheatleycore (11/30/2012) [-]
Yeah, mainly starting with flash then going onto more famous stuff (XBLA free ware?) but this project is for getting ideas down to someday make an online NES seeing what I can do in it's limitations but first the powerful flash games seem good to start.

-My post bellow explains my programming skills

I personally think it's better to start learning with some more washed-down programs like Gamemaker and Java if you have the time. But it's your choice if you're going indie.

Yeah I tried GameMaker... I didn't like it, then again I'm no good at programming, scripting ,and all that so I just might be biased against it...
User avatar #18746 to #18743 - maguswaffy (11/30/2012) [-]
Lol, you're probably just not so great at coding like I am. Gamemaker's not a bad alternative if you just want to make some retro-style games.
There's a few famous games out there that were coded in it, like Tower of Heaven and Assassin Blue.
I still suck at it, but over time I learned how everything works.. I just can't remember the names of all the functions.

Now that I look back at this, I sound like a jackass. Meant to say something along the lines of "we both suck at making games".

(In game sprite ideas)

Fourth or so world

First world idea

God damn, I can't imagine anybody being able to do stuff that small.
Do you have any animated sprites?
#18738 to #18737 - evilwheatleycore (11/30/2012) [-]
I'm just working on what I want in there before I animate, and, God know I might suck at animating them, they are rather complex in some areas so getting movement without fucking up how they look is going to be a bitch. I am also trying to find someone to program a side scrolling RTS, because me trying to program is like tring to get a seal to preform surgery, only less dramatic and funny
User avatar #18742 to #18738 - maguswaffy (11/30/2012) [-]
I see. Walking animations have always been my hardest subject. Don't bother with animation school, since there's a ton of Youtube tutorials out there that really help.
I like the idea. You're gonna have to practice coding a lot if you want a RTS in Flash to run smoothly, though. Several objects on the screen (the troops, for example) will cause a ton of lag if you don't take measures like only rendering what's shown in the camera view.
User avatar #18745 to #18742 - evilwheatleycore (11/30/2012) [-]
You know what, I'll try it. Coding will have to wait for breaks in my education (I have enough distractions with skyrim AND oblivion sitting on the shelf) and I can try to start animating them, I've just never thought of where to start.

FYI: Thank you for this, I was running out of motivation.

No problem. I aim to please.
