Well, actually... no. I have 0 experience with C. C++ was the first compiled language that I learned.
BlueCrab wrote:The image you send to the VMU's screen is basically just an array of pixels. Once you understand how to relate that array to what you see on the screen, you should be able to figure out how to turn on and off individual pixels by manipulating it. Once you can do that, your next step would be to put together a simple font to use with it, and then take the font and draw the characters you want into the array to get your desired effect.
I get that I should learn more about array manipulation, but how do I transfer that into writing a font for the VMU?

You could try searching on the forum to get a start on figuring it out. I'm sure there's at least a couple of topics on drawing to the VMU screen. Search for "VMU screen" and restrict your search to this forum, and I'm sure you'll find some stuff that's useful.
Okay, thanks. I'll get to learning more advance array manipulation ASAP!
Also, I'll probably contain all my DC dev questions to this topic to avoid bloating the forum.
