I am looking for a GUIDE or tutorial on programming 2D graphics. I need to know how sprites, animations and backdrops work. I would also like to know how scrolling backdrops work.
I dont understand how you update the screen-do you have to redraw the background and sprites to the videomemory 20 times a second? That seems very inefficient.
I programmed a game with vector graphics once, but i think programming with sprites uses other techniques. I program in C/C++ in DOS btw, does anyone know any good graphic LIBRARIES for dealing with sprites?
