General Lua and game coding advice?
« on: October 13, 2021, 06:12:00 PM »
I went to a community college for 3 years where I took almost all the CS and CS-adjacent classes, and I work in freelance web/mobile development. I have a bit of romhacking background, but I've never made any games.

Do you have any advice for me to get up to speed with Lua, or game programming in general?

My goal is to build something with elements of Secret of Evermore, ALTTP, Romancing SaGa 3, and Final Fantasy 6. Field navigation/interaction and mob-dodging like the former two, and JRPG-style battles like the latter two. I originally wanted to make a FF6 ripoff, but there's nothing to do outside of battle so it puts me to sleep.
