    Drawing sprites, tiles etc.

    Do I really have to do all this stuff manually??

    I mean, I'm not good at drawing stuff like that, so it takes a bloody long time to finish just a few tiles or sprites for a game.

    Are there any programs out there that actually make the drawing of spites and stuff easier? (Besides the normal progs like PhotoShop etc.)

    Either that or search for sprites on the internet. I'm pretty sure you can make nice stuff in Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro and other programs too.

    Well, _somebody_ does. This is a good reason to have an animator. Saves you the trouble of messing about, leaving you the time to do what you do best: Program.

    There is a RPG maker, I forget the name, it has something all 'RTP' it is a 20 meg file that is full of sprites and tiles, almost for anything you could use, if you are making an RPG though....
