Hi
Hello again Sphere ;D

I once visited the old forums learned a little then lost interest, well now im back older and (hopefully) a little wiser
to have yet another attempt at making games.

Nice to see some of the old faces still around tho (Davine, Flying Jester, Radnen and co).

My first problem seems to be with importing .png images to sprite sets, sphere just give me "error cannot import file"
am i doing something wrong? seems like this was easier last time i tried it (a loong time ago)

Welcome to Spherical! I'm afraid I don't remember you. :) Is this a new name?

About the error, AFAIK the old sphere editor (and mine) would need the spriteset set up in a particular way. Or if you are doing single image imports you could just copy/paste the image in. But be warned: the image needs to be the same size as the spriteset image size. (Go to the menu, spritesets, change size, and click resize spriteset to see what size it uses, and if so change it to the intended size).
If you use code to help you code you can use less code to code. Also, I have approximate knowledge of many things.

I like what I'm readin', here. This is basically how things went for me when I started with Sphere! At 14, mess around, copy-pasting random stuff, not really understanding anything and failing. A year later, coming back to it, properly learning the language and finally, making my own game and succeeding! Keep at it! :)

I used several of the documentation files that come with Sphere itself, but sometimes found them confusing or not explaining quite enough. That was one of the main reasons I wrote DaVince scripting tutorial, so it might be a good starting point. ;)

As you get a bit better, check out http://wiki.spheredev.org/Category:Tutorials
