comment How are old games levels made?
@dennmat So? Obviously the engine has to know what to do with the data it gets. The question was about editors, all I'm saying is that even pretty old games had editors. BTW I was not quite correct about Lemmings. They did create their own level editor, but made its UI like everyone's familiar paint program.

@dennmat Don't underestimate paint.exe or similar programs as level editors. For example, all levels of the original Lemmings have been created in a simple paint program.

comment How can I make a falling down effect in 2D - Birds Eye View
I am thoroughly confused by what you really want. Do you want an endless fall or not? Do you want birds eye view or side view? Maybe I'm just having a brain fart, but your question reads like a stream of consciousness rather than a clearly defined question.

comment Simple Multiplayer CCG System
You aer asking way too much for a single question. Focus your question on actual, objectively answerable problems. What you are asking is a complete design document, or at least for substantial parts of one.

comment Do I really need to “learn” C# for XNA if I know Java?
Don't leave it at jumping in and doing it though. While you're doing it and solve day-to-day problems, also read up on the new language to learn how to do do things better with features you wouldn't find out by trial and error, such as LINQ.

comment How to decompose sprite sheet
@RaymondHolmboe Then you need to provide more detail. Is there any way that a program could distinguish one texture map from another automatically, or do all sub-textures have the same size, or whatever? If you have more info, please add it to your question, otherwise I don't see how you can solve it other than with Paint.

comment animate a drawn 2D image to move
Also, you provide very little detail on what you're trying to achieve. If a player can draw a character, it's just a different, if more potent kind of character builder, and the more freedom you want to give to the player, the more work you have to do. Giving a computer nothing but a totally free-form drawing and having it crank out a playable character model would be indistinguishable from magic nowadays. Start simple, with a pre-defined model and let players paint the textures or something like that.

If you pull this off and release it into the wild, be ready for a LOT of animated penises and swastikas.

comment Trying to generate some unique numbers
The main problem of your algorithm is that it can't work. Look at the for-loop. It essentially says if(A) { break; } else { break; }, so it will always break at i==0 and never execute twice or more, so you don't ever run through your whole array. So all you do is compare your new random numbers with the first one you created, and you insert it if it's different to the first one.
