Map Mode Question
« on: March 29, 2011, 05:14:55 pm »
I'm not sure If I should post this here, but I was wondering, How exactly do I use Map Mode?  Maybe its just me, but the manual wasn't very clear.

As in, how could I use map mode to do a scrolling tilemap?

Sorry about the manual.  I tried my best to make it clear, so I feel that it's more that I rushed testers into reading the entire thing.  Anyways, don't worry about asking questions.

Be careful about smooth-scrolling a tilemap, as it's not as fast as doing it on Axe.  However, to move it to the left (like if your character is moving right), specify a negative X coordinate.  The following code will smooth-scroll a map to the left when the user hits the "right" key on the keypad.  Assume that A = 0 at the start.


Lbl AA
e^(0,A,Str1
A-1->A
int("DD
Goto AA

The same goes for Y Coordinates.  If you want to move a map up when the user presses the "down" key, use negative Y coordinates.

Please do not go above 0 for X coordinates for right now.  I have a bug to fix.

Okay, i still need to fix the sprite though.  ;)

as for above 0, I could just add a black border around my map or something like I do for Axe.

Thanks!

btw, should we have a Correlation questions thread like for Axe?

Ah, okay, so for now can we ask them in the bug reorts topic, or should we make our own topic?

You should make your own question under Our Projects/Correlation if it's not a bug-related thing.  That makes it easier for me :)
