The only programming language I'm comfortable with (I mean, making a big project) is Visual Basic 6.0. It's kind of a pain in the ass to get a decent platformer engine going with it. I've got one without scrolling already that I made by hand, it's pretty good. However, I'd like to make a Sonic-like game (or possibly a Sonic fan game) -- which would obviously require scrolling. The question is... Does anyone know a good platformer engine or "maker" software (not Game Maker, please)? Preferably something with a map/level editor that works in tandem with the engine. I'd just like to go the easy route on this one. Let me know, thanks.
