    vb sidescroler

    I know this is a c/c++ site and I am learning both of those languages... but I am more fluent in vb. So I was wondering if you knew how to make the screne scrole? Do i use two forms or just move things around on one?

    Move things around on one - double buffer the images - you must translate the world relative to the player or object being moved through the world.

    When you drive, the world comes to you even though you are moving - so in a game you must bring the world to the player.
