Althrounght some of you might find it useful for their games (if anyone makes 2d games ). Still, here it is .

The instructions are inside the folder.

Thanks for downloading Map Maker!

It is created under Dark Basic PRO platform, i don't know if it works for other languages too.

-------------CONTROLS

Arrow keys - Move around the map
N - switch tile image forward
B - switch tile image backwards
C - toggle between collisions placing mode
S - to slow down moving the map
F - to make moving the map faster
RMB - delete tile
LMB - create tile
F1 - Save your map
F2 - Save map collisions

------------USING THE MAP

Mainly you gotta load all used images in your project. Then you can open up mapx.txt file and use reading functions to read:

X POSITION
Y POSITION
IMAGE OF THE SPRITE

If you want to read Collisions read them in following
X POSITION
Y POSITION

Every position is being saved as LONG type of variable.

You can add your own tiles, inside TILES folder.



--------RIGHTS

You can use Map Maker for your commercial/non-commercial products. If you want you can give me some credit

That's a nice start.

Here are some things I noticed. A couple seem like bugs and a couple are usability issues.

The arrow keys make me move in the opposite direction I expected. As an example, the up key seems to make me go down on the map.

I noticed that I can't draw brick tiles over dirt (or any other tile) for some reason.

For games of any size it will speed up your map making a lot if you make a tile selector window instead of using n/b to select your tiles. It works okay now because you only have a few tiles, but if you have 100 tiles (easy for a game) that is a lot of n/b pressing.

I don't see a way for the user to choose what map size he wants.

Yup, i thought to fix that, but you can RMB on the selected tile and place your block Still i will fix that.

Yeh, i'll fix it

Map saves as much positions as you have sprites. So as big map you'll make as big will it be. It can be as big as you want.
