I've been trying to nail down a walking animation with libGDX. I'm making an RPG with the character that can move up, down, left, and right. I have this movement in a spritesheet. I've been following a youtube tutorial called Java Tiled Map Game which can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qik60F5I6J4
He does a better job then some of explaining what the code does but he glosses over the part where he gets his character to do a walking animation (by which I mean he doesn't show it at all).
I then moved to the tutorial found here: http://obviam.net/index.php/getting-started-in-android-game-development-with-libgdx-tutorial-part-2-animation/
But this tutorial tells exactly what needs to be done in regular words and then just gives a block of code. I already know what I need to do in regular words but I'm not trying to learn english but programming which is a completely different language. I'm sure I could copy and paste that code and edit it to do what I need but I wouldn't understand HOW it works only THAT it works. I want to know the how of it all. I'm new to libGDX and this is my first RPG game. I really want learn how to do it myself instead of relying on others.
My question is simply this: Do you know of a tutorial which shows and (more importantly) explains how to do a simple walking animation? I'm hoping you can supply one for me.
