Character trouble
« on: 26 Jul 2003, 18:55 »
At the moment, my biggest problem is the character. I'm trying to change the character's "looks", rather than the one we actually have at the beginning. Can anyone help? :(

Someone doesn't want to use Roger in their game?! ;)

Well you have to draw your character sprites, usually that means drawing a standing still frame for up, left, right and down and walk animations for those directions too, then import them into the sprite manager, then set up the sprites in a view, then set the character to the correct view.  This is all in the beginner's tutorial probably.
