Platform starter pack Q

  • Hey,

    Can anyone vouch for cimawebdesign.com/app/platform-game-starter-pack

    It's around ?2.50.. looks good but you know, I'd just want to be sure it's decent before I pay.

    Thanks

  • I can't vouch for them, but they seem legit enough to me, I mean you could only try, it is after all only a few quid :P

  • Patriick muhahaha, <img src="smileys/smiley24.gif" border="0" align="middle" />.. as a college student I earn no money <img src="smileys/smiley9.gif" border="0" align="middle" /> I had to sell my xbox, phone and games to afford this computer (which, miraculously, I got for such a great price) and now selling my bike <img src="smileys/smiley18.gif" border="0" align="middle" /> to buy the personal edition so hopefully one day I can get some form of revenue <img src="smileys/smiley19.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    Trust me, I know how that goes mate...

    In that case, why not just attempt making your own platformer assets =]

  • Patriick well I've made simple blocks (rectangles) to jump across etc and then replaced those sprites with some picture of the internet (http://tinyurl.com/p62s7ry) for instance.

    How would you suggest (beginner over here btw) me to go about making my own assets?

    Thanks <img src="smileys/smiley4.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • Well, if you want to use tiles in the form of pixel art instead of vector, I can pitch in and sort you some out...

    I think I might even have some old tiles that look pretty good lying around in my cloud storage. *Goes to look*

  • Nope, I cannot seem to find them, but I don't mind helping out a little...

  • Patriick I get the rough idea of pixel art etc. I suppose its just on a mass scale I probably get a bit nervous :P

    What is the difference between Vector and Pixel? Why use one or the other?

  • Other than.. 'Pixels are pixels' and 'Vectors and vectors' <img src="smileys/smiley17.gif" border="0" align="middle" /> Is one easier?

  • Try Construct 3

  • not really, I guess it depends on the person creating them, I just like the pixel look.

    I can animate a lot better with pixel art than vector right now due to not having the tools I would need but other than that I would say, neither is easier, it probably takes about the same effort, vector animation would be easier than animating your sprites but the process of preparing the vector art to be animated and such is tedious at times. It most definitely pays off if you get things setup right though.

    As for environment tiles, it's pretty much the same in my eyes, the vector art will look a lot smoother and such though

    Honestly I haven't worked with vector art for a while now either =\ lol

  • Patriick well if you do happen to bump into those old assets, it'd be much appreciated <img src="smileys/smiley14.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • Sulli: I think they may be on my external HDD but I have to leave the computer now... Once I am back later tonight then I will go through the HDD and see if they are there... If not I will probably just make some and post them in the tools/resources section.

    If I do then I will send you PM letting you know.

    Also if I don't get back on tonight I will be around in the morning for sure, I have a lot to get done :P

    I haven't seen you online today, I was going to ask you if you had anything specific in mind...

    Just as long as you don't go overboard with the request(s) I can probably get a little more done than just the basic platform tiles, let me know if there is anything more you would like, for example, collectible coins, a door and a key or something like that. Just as long as you don't mind me posting here for everyone either =]

    Post here or send me a PM. I will work on them tomorrow, I was going to today but I ended up staying up all night and I will probably pass out soon lol

    I also left you my Skype name in your other thread, just keep in mind I don't log on too often.

  • Patriick oh really?? I've been online for nearly an hour <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
