    Hey Guys!

    Is there a tutorial or a demo template for a side scrolling adventure game like Max Green so newbies can look into and learn from?

    Thank you

    Not as far as I'm aware. You could always try sending SDMono a pm. The basic principal is the same as a regular third person point & click game except you are limiting the walking mostly to the sides instead of multi-directional which is easy enough to do. Only include walk animations for the directions you want the character to walk & the engine will automatically select the closest direction if the actual intended direction is not available.

    Must just be busy. He usually pops in every so often, but aye I've not seen him online in a while. I doubt he would give you a template or access to the ved files for his games though anyway...

    What I said earlier still stands. Another thing is that you need to use really small way borders to limit the characters movement.

    No problem. wink

    If you want some demo templates, then check out the download page for VS. Visionaire > Download (via main menu). I think most of the games that were entered into the last VS competition are available to download on that page along with the ved & resource files for each one. Any of those will do as a starting point for reference.

    All you have to do is design your graphics for side-scroller perspective & then create really tight way borders & that's about it. You may also want 2 character outfits. One for walking only which has left & right or diagonals too & then another for general idle & interaction (if you want to use all 8 available alignment directions).
