I did a successful prototype for a game and am thinking of actually making it for steam. My game will be played on 12 background images with sprites, and here are a few questions
1- What screen size should I make my game? I need know this for my background images.
1a - Or do you guys make it variable size to fit the screen. If so is there a tutorial on variable screens?
1b - If you make the screen variable size what side do you recommend i make the background images?
2- Would loading all 12 high rez background images into the .exe be bad? Would that stress the memory and/or graphics card? In other words should I load the background pictures as needed?
3 - Is there a way to make character dialogue text appear cool? Like letter by letter, or some other way besides just popping up? If so can you point me to a tutorial, example, or plugin?
4 - For Steam do you use an installer or just a folder with the exe and jpg's if needed.
