Join John Horton for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the TextureHolder class for all textures, part of C++ Game Programming 1.
- Hi, this is the last video of this section,…Using the TextureHolder Class for All Textures.…In the previous video, we looked at creating…the zombie horde and bringing it back to life.…In this video, we are going to change the way…the background and the player get textures.…Since we have our TextureHolder class,…we might as well be consistent,…and use it to load all our textures.…Let's make some very small alterations…to the existing code that loads textures…for the background spreadsheet and the player,…thus changing the way the background…gets its textures in the ZombieArena.cpp file.…
Find this code that I've highlighted.…These lines are just before the main game loop…and below Create the background.…We have to delete these lines and replace them with this.…In this way, we'll be loading our texture…using new TextureHolder Class.…Don't forget to add the semicolon at the end,…and then save the file.…
Let's now change the way player gets its texture.…In the Player.cpp file, inside the constructor,…find this code, which I've highlighted.…
