Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
Nothing new....*insert yawn* But your help is needed
I have a pretty basic question. I used to be interested in iphone game development and got side tracked but now im back on track. Im pretty much lost. I dont have much programming knowledege. All I know is html and css, which only applies to designing websites. No java, c++, or any of those things. I barely know what they are, truly. I am really interested in the physics engine that was used on tiny wings, as well as the graphics.
Basically my question is what knowledege would I need to recreate a game like tiny wings. At this point the only information I have is that it uses the box2d engine, which once again I have no idea how to read. So as far as coding and physics engine what would I need to know. Also I've seen the android replicas and noticed that the graphics arent nearly as good and the games dont run as smoothly. The game development ideas I have arent anything really like tiny wings in terms of the concept of the game (bird,hills,etc.) but Im interested in the mechanics. Angry birds is also very interesting.
Well now that I've wasted your time with all this information let me put in list form what I came to ask:
- What programming language(s) would I need to know to recreate or create something similar to angry birds and tiny wings - Which graphics engine is the best to accomplish this - What software would I need to develop the graphics similar to tiny wings (wings,gradients,background,etc.)
