So, I'm new here on the GM forum. I discovered GM few weeks ago, I did a lot of tutorials and now I'm ready to try to do my first own game.
But before to start, I still have a couple of questions that I'm struggling with.
So, basically, my game will be a plateformer.
Which size should I use for my tiles ? 16*16? 40*40? etc. What could help me to choose?
Which size should I use for my sprites ? 16*16? 40*40? etc. What could help me to choose?
Which FPS should I use for my game ?
Which screen resolution will be the best ? The room size will be affected by the screen resolution I'll choose ?
Finally, I found a platform engine for GM. Do you think it will help me doing a plateform game ? The guy who did Spelunky use this engine, so I guess it's good : http://martinpiecyk....gine/index.html
May be this kind of questions are obvious but actually they prevented me to start. So, if you could help me find answers, I'll appreciate it.
Or if you have documents or links that could help me to find what I'm looking for, it will be nice too.
I know my english isn't very good so if you don't understand something, don't hesitate to ask which part you don't understand.
That's it for now ! Thanks you very much and have a nice day.
