I have just completed my first vb program, and now I’m getting ready to start some games. Is the display limited to four colors at one time? I know an individual char is, but can different OBJs on the screen use different pallets?
Also, how exactly does parallax affect depth? I see that a higher value pushes the two worlds farther apart, but does this mean it appears nearer or farther from the viewer?
I don’t know if the program I wrote is worth releasing, I wrote it just to sort of get my bearings with everything. If it may be useful to someone, I may put it up on my soon-to-be-launched VB site. I plan to release all my games as open source, in the hopes that it will make it easier for others to get into VB programming.
I think I might start with a pacman game first, mostly for my own benefit. After that, I’m thinking of a Mario game, either porting an existing one or creating my own(I’d like to port some other games as well: Metroid, Contra, Double Dragon….)
I’d also like to make an RPG, although right now I’m not sure how well it would work on VB.
My ultimate goal would be to someday make a Red Alarm style game, but with polygons instead of wireframes.
