very nice Paoletti, I'm working on a project on SDL, I actually started learning it a year ago, umm I would post a screen shot of the game but not sure of an easy way to do so, other then facebook. its a bird view shooter at zombies and flies, all drawn on paint. btw, I'm a much worse artist.
been hearing a lot about SFML, I think that ill check it out eventually.
wtf my browser had a brainfart and I lost what I was saying. Anyway, I said this was real cool.
(I had like 3 paragraphs praising it but my browser's a 'D' and I'm not gonna retype)
I'm working on a project in SDL also, a 2d topdown RPG. I have the foundation of a scripting system, I have a reliable way to manage my Units, and right now I'm redesigning how my engine works. It's not anything too fancy, but nonetheless I'm still proud.
I've also designed a custom file format that holds my map data. I've written a simple editor that allows me to edit.
no paint has no alpha that I'm aware of. I open an alpha channel on all my objects so they will have anti eye lashing or whatever is the term for it. And the wings of the flies I manually change their alpha to be slightly transparent, other then that my project isn't very alpha blended. I was thinking of having a special alpha particle engine for my flamethrower, but for now the non alpha particle engine will suffice. The goal for this project is for it to be online using UDP packets exchange, and having multiple threads. Two technologies that I have never incorporated before into any games.
