I always wanted to make my own little game but I don't have the skills to pull it off. I started by identifying everything I would need to know before I started a project this big. Would it be alright if I just asked more questions not related to the topic in this thread, good thanks forum!
I need to learn how to import a bitmap image to the c++ source code. I need to learn how to move the image while it being displayed, any method will do this will be crucial for my collision detection test later.
An Example would be most appreciated that how I learn best anyways.
google for SDL this is a library that will let you do what you need. Then look up the Lazy Foo tutorials which are very good.
If however you mean literally 'import the image into the source code' Then you can use Gimp or Photoshop to generate a file like an .xpm which will encode the image into data - You can add it as a resource to your project, or after a bit more study drop the content into a source file. you will still need a context to view it in though
Thank you I shall begin my new training.
