    Default 2D Game Engine Development [Youtube Tutorials]

    Hey there,
    My name is vanZeben and this is a Youtube series that I have created to teach people how to develop several types of games in Java with only core JDK libraries. This particular series will teach you how to create a 2D top-down game engine that will later be used to create various types of games based off of it. Feel free to check it out if you're interested.

    If you have any suggestions on how to do these videos or things that I have not explained fully enough or things that I have explained incorrectly, feel free to let me know and I can see what I can do about it.

    I decided to not embed the video's here as the post would take up a lot more space then it should.

    Episode List:
    Episode 1: Setting up the JFrame
    Episode 2: Creating a Sprite Sheet
    Episode 3: Displaying the Sprite Sheet
    Episode 4: Basic Input Handling
    Episode 5: Colour & Rendering Optimisation
    Episode 6: Mirroring the Sprites
    Episode 7: Rendering some Fonts
    Episode 8: Level/Tile Development
    Episode 9: Making our first mob, the Player!

  2. The Following 2 Users Say Thank You to vanZeben For This Useful Post:

    Thanks for donating to the public and the notice on the forum.

    I am from a time where the world is run by the ones who make the biggest donations to the public instead of the government. +1 to open source, sharing education, and to you vanZeben.

    Nice tutorials.
    The only thing that I can see wrong is that you need to zoom in when you are typing code, I can barely see it :'(
