I downloaded RFO Basic for android will it help?

  • #1 ✎ 47 Windy I downloaded RFO Basic for android which was created by the same guy who made Atari Basic. Im having real trouble with Smile Basic do you think this can help me? It has a nice offline manual here you can download and a quite a few game apps to look at in the editor. https://bintray.com/rfo-basic/android/RFO-BASIC Posted Edited by Windy

Is it trying to come up with the way to perform a task (such as moving something across the screen), or do the general syntax and commands confuse you? Posted
  • #3 ✎ 47 Windy Im pretty much starting completely over. Loading sprites and backgrounds is giving me trouble. I want to make a simple top down racer where you just race up dodging a few items and or a little traffic. I want to start as simple as I can with a scrolling background and a F1 car. After completing this dodge traffic or item racer I wanted to add onto it later with turns and maybe circuit racers Posted Edited by Windy
  • #4 ✎ 47 Windy I have no code programmed yet. I was kind of hashing out what I wanted the game to look like and formula 1 would look cool so I was going to start with doing the sprites for the cars and the track background. I think there is a top down racer example I will look at Posted Edited by Windy
  • #5 ✎ 1045 randomous Head Admin Robot Hidden Easter Eggs Second Year My account is over 2 years old Website Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies The problem is that learning programming is REALLY slow. Even something like your simple racer is rather complex for a beginner. Remember how long it took to learn all the math required just to START learning Algebra? It's the same with programming, unfortunately. Algebra isn't that complex, and neither is a simple racer. But they both require a lot of foundation. I mean it won't take you years to make a simple racer lol, but it won't come about instantly either. We really do need a set of tutorials that will teach the basic concepts necessary to be able to make the programs you want. Edit: As for whether or not RFO will help, I'm not sure. If it's more accessible, maybe you'll have an easier time. However, the fundamentals of programming stay the same no matter what language you're using. Posted Edited by randomous
  • #6 ✎ 47 Windy Yeah RFO has some real nice tutorials. I will mess with it a bit. I really want to use it a while then come back too SmleBasic. I took a look at the top down racer in the program section. I guess it would be considered simple. But not too me lol. I will keep messing with them both Posted
