I'm back, again!
I have retaken my project after the MySql + OpenGL experiments
My first step after deciding to improve the graphics of my game was to update my horrible tileset, so I searched for GPL'ed tilesets,... I was about to surrender but finally I found a very nice place: RL Tiles , a nice collection of GPL tilesets that gave me basically all what I needed:
Monsters / characters (From Dungeon Crawl):
Items (From Dungeon Crawl):
But at this point I needed some aid with the terrains + some magic effects, so I remembered a very fun, addictive rogue like made in Java: Tyrant - The Java Roguelike I asked the creator, Mike Anderson if I could include the game images and he accepted if I redistribute it under GPL license, Thanks Mike!!
Mixed terrain from Dungeon crawl / Tyrant:
All tilesets are 1024*1024 size, with the transparency set to Red:255/Green:0/Blue:255 (Pink), each one is divided into 32* 32 tiles with a size of 32*32 pixels (1024 tiles / tileset, space to grow!), finally all them are free to redistribute / use under GPL license.
In the next post I will speak about map storage with MySql and loading to ram..
