I can't draw, and when I do it takes forever to make anything and it's far from the coolest. Can anyone point me in the direction of some free tile sets that don't look like they came straight out of a Super Nintendo game? Anything medieval/dungeonish should do.

Try this site http://www.idevgames.com

In the download section, some guy named Carlos has tiles and also tiles which were used in the book "Mac Game Programming". You can make a dungeon with them.

Or you can search on that site and find a link to an article on making "tiles". Sorry I don't remember the link.

I keep typing it in my internet program. It doesn't work for some reason. I don't get it? Smile

No need to type. Go to your browser's window. You will see the URL of where you are now. Delete everything up to the "/"

Then you can find the site. If that doesn't work, then the site must be down. In that case, come back and post here.

Go to your computer desk. Sit down. Look straight ahead. See that thing in front of you, on the desk? That is a Macintosh. It should have a little "apple" logo on it some place. If it doesn't, see if it says Umax, Power Computing, DayStar, APS, Tatung, or Motorola. If you don't see that, then you don't have a Macintosh-OS computer.

(I know I am missing the name of the retailer who bought the Umax MB and re-sold them in a 'clone' at the very end. Can't recall their name though.)

Also ask for help with pixel art(in general the SNES/Capcom/NeoGeo style) at http://pixelation.swoo.net . Someone might point you to a tutorial on making tiles, offer to do some for you or show you some already made.

Just ask

Does anyone have any old 32*32px(or whatever you want) tiles lying around from old projects that I could use for my free game. If not are there any tile tutorials or free resources you know of? Any Help would be greatly appreciated

You forgot Pioneer. Yes the music , DVD company. I believe it was targetted at the music industry and it only sold in japan too. Think I'm full of crap?
