2d Tile Map AGAIN?!?
« on: 2011-May-24 »
I was looking for a way to put TileStudio maps into GLBasic and only found the Mappy code. I was going to convert the DarkBASIC Pro code that is generated but that seemed clunky and slow.(didn't do it so it may be fast??)  I took the map data from it though.
I coded this for something I'm working on, the map is 50x50 with tiles 256x256, excessively large? yes but I did it to see what FPS I could get. On my system I'm getting between 250 and 500 FPS. (I hope I'm using FPS function properly) I had a 10x10 map running at 500 FPS.  It uses the joystick. The 2 attachments are the tile file and font file.

I think I could add animated tiles to it easily.
I would love some feedback.(does it run for you,FPS, improvements...)

Re: 2d Tile Map AGAIN?!?

Good. Worked for me - just needed to declare some Globals.

FPS hits 500 max on my 320m Nvidia card. When looking at the top left part of the map the FPS drops to about half that. The further away I am from the top left part of the map the more FPS improves. My guess is the routine is trying to draw many tiles off-screen in proportion to how top and left the map viewer is.

One possible optimisation could be to change DRAWANIM so that it uses POLYVECTOR instead. A way to load map data from a file would be great too.

Thanks for the reply.
Globals yes, I really should get in that habit. I lazily change the project option explicit declarations.

As for the framerate drop, this...
IF (x>-256 AND x<maxmapx) AND (y>-256 AND y<maxmapy)THEN DRAWANIM 3,q.tile,x,y
was suppose to fix that, doesn't seem to do anything. I actually added it because I wasn't sure if drawing that many sprites off screen would any corrupt memory. I can't tell why, I'm no expert in GLBasic.

This code is really just me testing a different way to do 2d tile maps. I did pretty much the same code in DarkBASIC Pro using its 2d map plugin and I get better results from this. I will be adding a load file data, animated tiles and look into POLYVECTOR. POLYVECTOR is faster?

I also need to figure out collision.

I think I found a couple of bugs in the following:
Code: (glbasic) [Select]
IF yspd>5 THEN yspd=5
IF yspd>0 AND mpy-yspd<-maxmapx
yspd=0
mpy=-maxmapx
ENDIF

Shouldn't that code all be referring to 'y'?  I see two 'x' references.

I would make your tile size a constant to clean up the code and make it easier to follow such as:
(same as screen width/height, but they don't have to be a constant, if screen size isn't fixed)
CONSTANT TILE_SIZE% = 256  // Assuming tile is square
//then update all references to 256 . . .
LOADANIM "circle.png", 3, TILE_SIZE, TILE_SIZE

And try outputting your x and y values in the 'FOREACH q . . .' in the 'drawmap()' function.
Find the range of the x/y values to see if they are what you are expecting.

I'm trying to follow that code, and I figure it is something like:
x = (screen_width / 2.0) + map_scroll_pos_x + tile.x
So, does this start drawing the map of position (0,0) in the center of the screen (when map_scroll_pos=0)?
So x would equal 1/2 screen width, or 512 in your case for tile (0,0).
Then you check if x > -TILE_SIZE . . . not sure if this is correct, I would have to see your code running to verify.

I remember trying to get a scrolling map working during the 1st week of learning GLBasic, and having never done this before in any language I found it quite a challenge.  I eventually got it working by trial and error (tried something, see what it did, find out why, and adapt!).
