Resolved Questions / Stencyl Tutoring
« on: June 23, 2011, 09:37:48 am »
Hey, might sound crazy, but I'm not the fastest learner. However, I'm more of a visual type/hands on learner. Is there anyone willing to help tutor me? I know everyone is backed up or either working their own projects, but I just need help getting my first game off the ground.

1. I have in my mind what type of game I want and most of the behaviors and reactions to player movements.

2. I have a ton of questions on how to incorporate the attributes and actions necessary to get the game functioning. (example, timers + highscore, score multiplyers, animating damage of structure by number of hits done to it.)

I can help with GIMP too if you want.

GIMP is much like what I have already in Pixelmator. Pixelmator is the Mac version of Photoshop.

How do I unsubscribe from a post so it won't constantly show up?

It is a great program for painting backgrounds and character portraits, but I would stay away of using it for making the actual characters to be used in the game.

What would you suggest for a Mac user then?

Can you use Art Rage to make your game art? I know there's a lot of specialist that create graphics I was just wondering if you could use Art Rage to create your character art? I heard it's easier to use than Photoshop.

Windows only, if I'm correct.

So what would be the best Mac equivalent to this program?

Do you have a more specific idea of what you'd want to make?

I would like to make a 2D side-scrolling action adventure game. So I want it to look cool, but not as blocky.

Hey guys/gals. Is Graphic Gale compatible with Mac OSX? Looks like a nice program and if so does it have constant support or is it just open sourced?

Is your real question "How do I get higher detailed images in my game without having them take up tons of screen space?"

Nope, not really because Rhys game does that already. Guess I will use all of the editors to see which one looks better maybe that will solve this lol

It's no matter if picture was made with PS, GIMP or Inkscape or even with M$ Pain(t). PNG is PNG no matter how it was made.

This is true, but I also don't want my game to look like an Atari classic with all the blocks that pixels create.

Yep, every game I make uses PNGs with opacity and I almost never use pixel art. (if I do I brush it up with effects)

What is the main program you use to draw with?

As an example, I used Inkscape (vector art program) to create all the artwork for my game, Dreaming Big (sadly, not currently available for viewing online). A simple export to .png creates a very nice smooth looking image that works well in Stencyl.

Can I use a tablet with Inkscape?

I've been banging my head trying to figure out the same thing. If it is true I will be reduced to using like Pixen or something even though I don't know how to do pixel art, I will be limited in my ideas if I were to use it.

Questions guys/gals. How is it people use Photoshop to draw? What tools do they use? Because it is a raster program, but I've seen some good looking work so that can't be just Photoshop alone. Somebody help me I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out what program to use. I have Pixelmator(Photoshop alternative for Mac) and Sketchbook Pro which is a sketching/drawing program. And yes I know how to draw.
