It can be difficult to ask for help in the best way – especially if you aren’t sure what the problem is. In this post, I hope to give some basic pointers that will help others to help you quickly and efficiently so you can go back to coding from scratching your head.Continue reading “Helping others to help you, or how to ask a useful programming question”
One of the things I struggled with when using the PixelGameEngine was using animated sprites. It wasn’t immediately obvious how to get it to work, so over the Christmas break I decided to make a concerted effort to figure it all out.
The end result was a brand new extension for Javidx9’s PixelGameEngine. So, I would like to present the olcPGEX_AnimatedSprite with a small tutorial on how to use it.Continue reading “New PixelGameEngine Extension for Animating 2D Sprites”
