i searched for other games like this on these forums but however when i collectively added code it altimatly doesnt work so im adding this post to see the communtiy answer.

As from the Subject im tring to make a new pokemon game useing Dark GDK

I have All the graphics down and im tring to set up the programming. Ill Update as i find time to continue to program.

At the moment im getting my background set, even though i have it loaded its not poping up im thinking its 2 big as a file then after ive fixed that i dont know how to Zoom in to a central location and move the map in the direction the sprite (like a normal Pokemon game)

Thanks for your input I hope to finish this project and share with those who help


im nearly 1/3 the way done, to give an update im currently got the my splash page, overworld, and NPCs done
however my code was COMPLETELY everywere so disorganized so i made them into different functions
thats when i started getting problems
my splash page will now not load - (cant tell if anything else went wrong)
this is the function

I left the LoadResources() out because its like 300 lines of code (lol) it has the loadImage funtions

void Splash()
//Set the window title
dbSetWindowTitle("Pokemon: Jolt Yellow Version");

while ( LoopGDK ( ) )
dbSprite ( THANKS, 0, 0, THANKS );

//Loop the intro music

//Displays the splash
dbSprite ( SPLASH, 0, 0, SPLASH_S );

// run a loop through all our sprites
for ( int i = 2; i < 30; i++ )
// create an animated sprite and give it the ID number
dbCreateAnimatedSprite ( SPLASH_START_S , "start.png", 1, 2, SPLASH_START );

// position our sprite at a Location near the bottom
dbSprite ( SPLASH_START_S, 0, 378, SPLASH_START );

//Clears the screen and delete the sprites, they not going to be used again till program restart

this area of the forums is generally for 2d art (vs 3d art), and not 2d coding as i think you thought

as you're using darkgdk, try asking the question in the darkgdk section of the forum here where i expect you'll have better luck getting a response.
