for the background i get it but the problem in the Hey example, i dont understand why i cant remove the sky on the right and below the map, it would be normal to leave it just above no ?

yes but i mean i can wait some months more so you can finish the animated tiles, the new collision system and stuff ...

please work fast hahaha

Its how it draws itself on the screen.  In that example it is a repeatedly drawn background.  So wherever the current view is it will draw so in this case if you maximize the window Everywhere on that right window you will see the background including the area outside the bounds of the map. So if it really bothers you then just stretch the map window to fit the bounds of the map.



The other option is to only draw it once, which would not look very good for that sky background. The background will be drawn once and it will move each frame anywhere where the background isn't will be whatever is under that background In the program's case Gray.

hahaha, what I welcome bug reports. I'm not going to get angry.

Could you give me a bit more information?

For instance,
Did you save the map before choosing that option?
Did the map have a valid tileset associated with it?

Multiple Collision Layers?
« Reply #50 on: July 10, 2010, 11:45:15 pm »
Maybe you can do this already, but I'm wondering how you would handle a map with multiple levels with this editor? (for example a bridge overhanging a walkable area, youd need to be able to walk under the bridge while you're on your base level, but then youd need to add a collision layer to the boundaries of the bridge when you move up so the character cant walk off the bridge). The easiest way i could think of would be to add an event that switches the collision layer when you pass over the tile associated with the event.

In its current state no, that would need some specialized support. I will look into it when I start working on different types of Colllision Layers which I am planning on after I finish animated tiles.

How does e collision detection work? Is there. Check for collision function in your code?

I have not, I'm just busy with life and school.  I am graduating this semester. And that plus other school related projects I have little time to work on this.  There may be an update before the end of the year

I am working on redesigning the application front-end and back-end.  I'm not pleased with how I designed this.

The only problem is that I am using SFML 2 and SFML 2 as I last heard does not work on Mac.

So theoretically when that is done it should theoretically work on macs

Also my code is ugly

A small thing:
When you use the select tool and then press Del, the map isn't automatically updated  :wink:

How about did you try to open a map you created yourself or one of the example maps?


Also to anyone waiting on an update.  I apologize for keeping you waiting, but I am pretty busy with college, teaching, and other projects (which takes up almost all of my time).  I am graduating in about 3 weeks and I will have some time to work on this after that :D
