+Random Terrain Posted February 8, 2009 Share Posted February 8, 2009 (edited) yuppicide, take a look at this:If you want to work on an animation and you've never done it before, here's one way to do it. Create a sprite in the Sprite Editor and save it. You wrote to create a sprite in the sprite editor and save it. How do I do that? I go in to the Sprite Animator and everywhere I click does nothing to draw for me. So, now I am reading you wrote "create in the sprite editor" -- what is "the sprite editor"? VBB has no sprite editor that comes with it that I can see. Only sprite animator. So, I loaded up a game that has Player1 defined. Then fired up Sprite Animator. Still not working or showing me anything. Leave the Sprite Animator alone. It won't help you. I guess I should make it more clear on the VbB page. I have been making sprites by using other sprites for so long that I rarely have to add a blank sprite first. You can add a blank sprite file to a project from the main menu or by right clicking in the Project Explorer. So one way to create a sprite file is to click on File from the main menu, go down to Add, then select New Item. Just select the type of file, give it a name, and left click the Add button. Now you'll have a blank sprite file to work with that will be sitting in a fake sprite folder in the Project Explorer. Double click on the file and it will open in the Sprite Editor. Maybe jwierer should add Sprite Editor and Playfield Editor to the View menu so newbies can go right to them instead of needing to make a blank file first.
