How long did it take you to make games like this? I’m like doing this in unity and i’m having a lot of trouble.

Max, how long do you learn programming to become this good?

Victoria Mielke says:

I have written your code exactly as in tutorial and can’t render the background image. I get the error “Argument 1 of CanvasRenderingContext2D.drawImage could not be converted to any of: HTMLImageElement, HTMLCanvasElement, HTMLVideoElement, ImageBitmap..”

Stephen Davies says:

Links to resources are no longer maintained, then i saw how long ago this tutorial was published. I dont know why simple html5 canvas or dom elements could have not been used, cant follow this any more now 🙁

Rina says:

The first link in your description isn’t working anymore 🙁

gato says:

what software are you using for this. is it notepadd ++??

Scot Brown says:

Hey Max, I am using your engine and am unsure of the best way to approach a problem. I want to write text to the canvas formatted according to my stylesheet, but I am only able to format the frame, and I am drawing to the view. My current workaround is setting the font and fillStyle each time I write text, which isn’t too bad, but ideally I’d be able to scale (pixelate) the game without ruining my text.

Is there a reasonable way to either format the view or draw directly to the frame?

Filip Book says:

What’s the graphics editor you’re using to look at the res files?

Tack som fan för övrigt med videon, mycket bra intro för mig 🙂

vlone kellz says:

can i get more info on _fctx use and meaning please and thank you (anyone)

Scot Brown says:

Sorry to keep bothering you, but why did you choose to place the App class in main?

Could you instead have Tetris inherit from App (or Game) so that all of the key binds and content loading that are specific to tetris are in the tetris-specific class, and all of the more general code (canvas sizing and ticking) are abstracted more effectively? I imagine that this would be more time-consuming in the short-term, and may be less effective for teaching (as in your case), but could the benefits be worth it? 

android Developer says:

where are you programming

Susan Shemin says:

Absolutely fantastic video tutorial.  I followed all the way through part 4 and the game works!  I also learned a lot about javascript syntax and how to utilize the editor.  The only thing missing is how to make the game mobile — I’m off to find out how.  Thanks so much!

Bas Degen says:

Max thanks for your awesome tutorials 🙂 (y)
