Something helpful for your map editor, back when I was working on Walriimon with Lua/Love2D I used Tiled for my maps. It's really powerful and it should be more than enough for your purposes.

Also, I highly recommend using something like Lua with Love2D or Python with Pygame. You don't need the power a language like C++, C#, or Java will give you and working in a simpler language has its benefits for ease of development. And if it's of no matter, I would even recommend an engine like Godot to take care of the systems and code structure aspects of the project.

I still recommend C# with SFML or SquareBasic :)

And one day, there will be Claw too.

Meh. C[++] or java will allow you the most freedom. C# is basicly java. For the game you describe, there is NO NEED for a game engine. If you plan to make future projects, i would very well advise learning how to write your own tilemapper (its very easy, it takes me about 30 minutes to write one ;) (But ive done it many times before)). As for a tile editor, Tiled will probably work (although ive never used it)

There is also Mappy, which is ancient and has its quirks (such as no undo), but I and tr1p1ea used it often in the past. If your maps aren't too big and you are good at backing up your progress often (saving often) it can do the job. I never tried Tiled much, though, so perhaps that might be better.

On an off-topic note @Scipi is Walriimon dead? D: (Nice to see you around, btw :))

I wouldn't say dead, just in long term stasis. I have the exp in godot to fully make it now, I've just got a bit too much on my plate atm to work on it.

was/is walriiimon another pokemon-like walrus game?

Ah I see. Too bad. I hope you can work on it again later

p2

just out of curiosity: what language was it written in? :)

The first attempt was in Lua with Love2D. When I couldn't figure out GUIs, I switched to using the Godot engine.




p2

Dont know them both :/
But it's really sad you dont have the time to work on it atm because it looks really promising! :) I hope you'll find the time to continue it soon :)

As many people arent aware of it I guess I should post an update:

My "old" PocketWalrus game was created in AutoIt but I had troubles with the program speed as AutoIt is pretty slow.
(I implemented a smooth 24-step scrolling effect to walking, still using a 3-layer 2//4-frame animated environment. And I endet up with <<10fps)
So now I am currently rewriting it in Java.
Therefore I'll probably redo most of the graphics, too, as I'll probably increase the definition by the factor 2.
So I'll be still using 24x24 pics, but what was one tile until now will become 2x2 tiles :)
This way everything will be twice as big except the walrus whic hmeans it ifinally fits in ^^
Also it's name will be changes lateron as PocketWalrus doesnt fit since it's gonne be different from pokemon games.

For those interested in it, this was my latest version BEFORE I implemented a smooth scrolling effect:
https://mega.nz/#!SVdCHTzQ!jCo7vf4Ax30axgLep0kcbX-Gz_4pxYhnztyFhLTfw9E
Please mind that the /IMG/ has to be in the same folder as the .EXE
Also right click the tiny icon in the taskbar and choose EXIT or just kill the tak to quit. The [X] in the window bar doesnt work. Sorry for that xD

For those interested in the source code (AutoIt3) here you go:
http://pastebin.com/j5DBa47G
Feel free to do anything you want with it, I dont care ^^

Feel free to use/Edit my code/tiles in any way but as always: If you make money sellign anything I created, you got to buy me cookies  :love: (Seroius about that!)

Maybe you could call it Super Walrii Quest or Super Walrii RPG? As for speed I am surprised that auto-it performances are this poor. I hope you don't have the same issues in Java.

Super WalRPGii!

ehh that kinda works
Living in another world to you.



Also in case you were wondering Frankie did go to Hollywood

DJ Omnimaga

My idea was kinda inspired from Super Mario RPG actually. But also I had a platgormer in the works back then that was called Super Walrii Land, so that would have been fitting to have Super Walrii RPG.
