I like coding, I like games, I like coding games. And I'm eating a twinkie.

comment Memory strategy for multilayer, tilebased maps
@JoeSwindell Language shouldn't matter. I really think that the Java tag could be removed, although it may have some relevance because it runs in a VM which can affect performance; this question still doesn't have much to do with language.

Have you researched this?

comment 2D games and modern OpenGL
The top answer currently starts out by saying "You main question seems to be". That indicates that it is unclear what you are asking. Maybe you should give a summary of what you need no know at the end of your question. This is a Q/A after all, not a discussion.

comment 2D games and modern OpenGL
I think I understand what you are asking, but you may want to give this question a little bit more direction. It is a bit unclear what is being asked - which is actually a close reason.

comment how do i start a video game development team
You may also want to look into open source projects. You could either start one, or contribute to an existing one (more likely to be a success). This may not really be a team per-say, but it would still provide experience.

Just FYI, you may want to ask this on the Minecraft forums. It doesn't seem like there are a lot of Minecraft modders here.

comment Picking tiles in an isometric diamond map
Why are you dividing the map.x and y by two? Also, try drawing a red dot at the calculated x and y and give us the result.

You don't actually need matrices for this. Have you solved this problem yet?

comment Creating a seamless open world 2d game map
Excuse me, but would you mind clarifying what you mean by "where it will the second map"? You seem to have left a word out :)

comment 2D Rectangle Collision
If the world is endless, you could divide the world into chunks, and then divide the chunks into quad trees.

comment How can I make video games if I don't like programming?
This question is quite old, but I think it would be important to add that part of your problem is where you started. C++ is a very complicated language for a beginner. The first time that I tried to learn C++, I gave up. To any new programmer, I would recommend that they start with something like Python. It's a much easier start. I'm sure that you already came up with an answer by now, but maybe this will help a future reader.
