Well, I have read the tutorials by Yeldarb and some other articles and I decided to get to work and make something. Right now all I have is an animated sprite that you can move around the screen. I have yet to discover how to make a colour of the sprites transparent. Also, the function I am using to clear my screen is not really working how I would like, it is more of a paint-over than a clear. Oh well, if you would like me to post the code for this I would be more than happy.
