FRex, I've seen those before, I was just wondering if what tutorials from this list you were reffering to
It's 16x16 on 240x320 than scaled to 2x. I'm making NES-like game, so it's okay for now ;)

krzat, there's no trouble with your code, I was just interested in exploring more methods so I can come up with mine.

Shader one and krzat's, scrap the 'basic' one, it's too 'basic'.
Yeah, the basic one and shader one are mine(+idea and glsl code to start off of from dbug).
I'm so promoting myself right now. :P

That's for 32x32 but it can be changed easily to whatever sizes, unlike the example glsl from dbug, because I've written it from scratch.

If your number of tiles exactly fill the window, why do you need to check which tiles are visible at all (they are all always visible)?

Laurent, it's because of scrolling. Level is much bigger that what's on screen

Yeah... what I wanted to know is the total size of the map, of course ;)

Well, I'm not really sure about that. Right now I just use 276 * 15 tiles map. This is the size of first Super Mario Bros 3. level(excluding vectical scrolling). I think my maps will be even bigger

I don't see a problem, I just don't really know how to use them in my situation :)

Well... then read some tutorials ;)

And don't hesitate to come back if you have more specific problems with it.

Hi,

it must be strange that an old post receives a new comment. I'm designing the tilemap for the game and I wanted to know what did you implement at the end: Did you used a tileset based on an array of sprites or did you build it with a VertexArray?
