Hi, the last few weeks I've been working on a game but I haven't gotten anywhere with the engine yet because I don't have any graphics to test it with. I could really use some graphics for my 2d rpg that I'm making. I need the tiles to be standard 32*32. I was wondering if somone might know where I could find such a download. if anyone knows of any rescources like this, please tell me. I would really appreciate it.

i dont know where you could find any images but you may just want to open up a graphics program like photoshop or something and just create a temporary texture, dont expect to wait on the engine development until you have the graphics. I cant tell you how many alphas or betas I have seen that had horrible graphics simply because the artists hadnt finished the graphics yet.

From the site:

Quote:idevgames.com - This site has some kind of unholy Macintosh fetish. As such, it is overly "pretty" with nice rounded corners (so mac-users don't hurt themselves) and an unsettling predilection for tacking the letter 'i' onto the iBeginning of iThings it doesn't iBelong on. Moreover, it has some fantasic graphics. Many of the graphics collections here are licensed for use only in games that are for Macintosh. Some are public domain. Pay attention which you download.

I sent him a note on that and he said he would "alter" the text. Seems like he didn't. Mad

You need grass, dirt, water tiles?

Go to Photoshop. Fill your tile with green (grass), brown (dirt), blue (water). Then select a lighter shade of the color. Select the Noise filter and apply noise.. Not too much, but enough to add some "texture" to the tile. Boom, done. Easy. Works for sand too.

Well, he does warn people to check the license on our downloadable assets before assuming they're free. Wasn't that the reason you wrote to him before?

To be fair, he's completely within his rights to mock us for being Mac users! Wink

Those mac bashing comments are mostly in good fun. It's more like elbow jabbing the guy you are jealous of because he has better assets than you. Don't take it to heart, Carlos. Grin
