    Point "blank", on your "six".
    Alright. So I'm basically wanting to put together a few picture books/comics (i.e. images) as a NDS game. I have no experience with anything of the sort, other than image-type stuff. I don't want anything particularly fancy. Maybe just touching the screen to go forward/backward. How hard would this be, and how would I go about doing it?

    I tried messing around with something called DS Game Maker, but after installation, it crashes every time I try to run it. Alternatives?

    Thanks.

    PAlib is good. But what does DS Game Maker say after it crashes? (I can fix it)

    Usually crashes are from a out of date net framework,but thats for me anyways when mapping.

    It give a usual Microsoft error, and tries to send the report. I'm using XP, if that matters.

    OK, so PAlib doesn't require me to know any coding coding, etc? What I really want is something simple.

    Couldn't you use ComicBook Ds?

    OK, Skull. It'll be a day or two before I get everything in order.

    No. I want my own program. [​IMG] CBDS would ruin the idea- If people have to go download another program, they might as well just download the stuff online. I guess you could just say that I want a .nds file, and that only.

    I also want to add looping background music.

    This would be incredibly easy to make. Maybe an hour of coding or less.

    I don't understand how you plan to make this when you say you don't know how to code.

    Uh, if I knew how to make it, I wouldn't be posting here...

    People usually aren't born knowing how to do such things, so I thought I'd come here, get some pointers, etc.

    Don't be a wanker just because he doesn't know code/scripts.
    Don't pretend you always knew it either.

    I would suggest starting with something more simple if you have absolutely no coding experience.

    My goodness. I think placing a few images in order is about as simple as it gets. Not like I'm remaking Ocarina of Time or something...

    I actually think that there is nothing as simple. I mean, there's no animations, movement, etc.

    I find its best to start out with a "Hello World" program and work my way up from there when I am learning a new programing language. Although if you use DsGameMaker you might be able to make your book without using any code(I have never used DsGameMaker so I'm not sure about this).
