2D Game Programming Tutorials?
Just wondering if there are any good 2D programming tutorials for the most basic beginners. I am aiming to do something along the lines of Final Fantasy 1 type graphics. 2D, very flat, very simple.
None the less i am just learning C++ now and wanna go kinda double course lol. Id be willing to invest in a book but my resources are limited, so basically next week i'll be checkin out potential game programming books so any pointers of those would be awesome too. And yes this is from a store not amazon.com so i have limited resources lol.
is a link for a FF1 Game, if you dont know what they look like.
But all those first nintendo zelda, FF1, type games look the same.
Overall (and you'll prob laugh) id like to incorperate an MMO aspect to it, but first i have to make it.
So in closing.
1.) Do you know of any good beginner 2d game tutorials (the fuller the better).
2.) Can you list some good beginner books that will guide me through beginners 2d gaming experience? front to back pref (specially front lol). I have read through search that "Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus" and "Sams Teach Yourself Game Programming with DirectX in 21 Days", ofcourse some ppl seem to hate Sams, but hey im a beginner, so blech. lol. Not to mention tricks of the windows(..) sounds more advanced, but w/e hehe.
3.) How exactly do the birds and the bee's explain anything? Erm sorry, ignore #3, tired, and all my posts are so nub it makes me sick.
Thanks for putting up with massive ignorance :)
