hello, I was wondering if someone could explain to me the steps of making a tetris game. would i have to create the blocks in Adobe Photoshop or another art program?
Mmm, tetris, some games are just so great. Well that depends alot on how neat you want it doesnt it? Nice bitmaps are easier to make than good looking setpixel call chains. Id say use the Rectangle function to start with for simplicity though. It has the following syntax: Rectangle(yourdc, XLeft, YTop, XRight, YBottom); yourdc is the return value from beginpaint, the rest are integers saying where the box should be drawn. (Also, you could make a text-tetris could you not? :P )
there is an article on Gamedev.net just about that ... written by Chriss Hobbs i belive... an better is all in Win32ASM :) check it out ..
