Map Editor

Map editor

Hi,

We are ready with our XNA Tile Map Editor.  Rather we would call it a Map Editor. Because in this updated edition you can also have tiles along with free images. So, double bonanza in single price.

And if you ask us the problems we have face while development, we would say they too many to count.

There were issues while making tiles and saving them but free images were fairly easy. There were a few problems in mouse handling, so we had to provide a complete keyboard control to set layer depth, rotation ,etc. (Which you can’t see in video).

Another crazy problem which came up was , whenever you try to move  mouse to scroll window, coordination of mouse and images got messed up and they  would fix  their place anywhere in screen.

We have checked many videos on you tube and have gone through many tutorials and then came up with a detailed list of items to be added in the map editor. We have come up with our unique way of creating map editor which is useful for both Platformer games and RPG games.

Regards,

Zatun Team.
