Robx,

I will be working on it today. I had some family commitments yesterday. It shouldn't be much of a problem as I already have the code done in DBP. The hardest part is the way that DBC handles globals inside of functions.

did you put in all the textures? including the side panel and the cursor, and did you use the earlier version for db pro or the one zen sent me for dbc.

robx,
Getting this part to work under DBC is taking more work than I had anticipated. The reason is because their are alot of components at work in an Iso map to hendle scrolling,tile-walking,screen-updating for animation. I know that I am close, I'll try to finsih it this weekend.

Also dbc doesn't allow user defined types. This is a hassle because I use them to define rect boundaries in order to determine tiles that need to be redrawn. Of course this can be done by seperate variables but I have to admit that it just looks ugly and confusing under DBC.

hey if its too much work you can handpass whatever you have over to me and i will see if i can work on it myself, it'd prolly be better that way cause i will be able to understand it better if i fiddle with it. But thanks for goin out fo your way to work on it for me, it's much appreciated.

Can I ask you a couple of questions about this engine?

1. How could I resize the viewing window and move it so that it is not in the top left hand corner?

2. I would like my game to run in 1024x768 resolution, what in this code would I have to alter?

3. Most importantly, I would like the program to be able to recognise what tile I have clicked on.....and possibly change the image used for the tile (to signify that it has been clicked). I have no idea how to do this......I have just come from programming a text only game!
