Creating a game using gadgeteer... Sprites?


#1

Hello!

I am creating a small game using this gadgeteer with a display/joytick/buttn etc. and I was wondering how i can make sprites?

I am currently trying to create a character which can be moved using the joystick but am struggiling with this…

I need to make the character ( or sprite) move and this doesnt seem possible with the native display.SimpleGraphics. functinons

Thanks!

Thanks and thanks for the quick reply…

Ive taken a look at few but cant seem to find ones based on visual basic… I would use c# but need to use visual basic because i am going to be teaching this to other people

GameO/Gadgeteer does not include a game engine or special hardware for sprites.

there are open source game engines available, written in C#, but it is unlikely that they would fit into the limited available resources of the Gameo.

as Brett suggested chech the codeshare.

Don’t listen to Brett, listen to Andre.

Check pacman from @ taylorza. He is using sprites. His space invaders for game-o is another example on how to use sprites.

It shouldn’t be hard to port it to VB.
