English so far, only.
Excellent work from PeeJay, who wrote a complete game as a tutorial from scratch.
On his site you can find another tutorial.

Ta! As games go, they are pretty simple affairs, but if it helps someone start coding in GL, then it can only be for the good :)

PeeJay's Game Programming Tutorial

Hello,

I am reading PeeJay's Tutorial and adapt the first lesson to run on my GP2X-F100 (i.e. setting the screen resolution to 320x240
Here is the code:
Code: GLBasic [Select]
SETSCREEN 320,240,1
LIMITFPS 60
SETTRANSPARENCY RGB(0,0,0)
LOADSPRITE "player.bmp",0
GLOBAL px= 320/2 - 32/2
GLOBAL py= 240/2 - 32/2

WHILE KEY(01)=FALSE
        DrawTheScreen()
WEND
END

FUNCTION DrawTheScreen:
        DRAWSPRITE 0,px,py
        SHOWSCREEN
ENDFUNCTION
I loaded the following files on my GP2X in a folder /Projects/MyFirstGame/
MyFirstGame.gpe
player.bmp

I am using the demo version.

This is maybe an issue with the screen depth?

Thanks for your precious help!

Regards

François

If you write code for gp2x, better not even write "SETSCREEN 320,240,1" =)

Hello,

I am done wit this fantastic tutorial. I really enjoyed following it and it convinced it to invest into the GLBasic Premium Pack (bought with a GP2X-F200 on www.gp2x.de).

So, the next steps...
Programming in GLBasic looks so simple, that now I have the feeling the most difficult task to develop a game is to create nice graphics...
So,my question is simple: is there a good tool that allows to build graphics and animations for those whith no drawing capabilities/skills :) (e.g. based on templates)...
I would be also interested in any web sites dedicated to 2D games graphics.

Thanks for your help

François
