    level editor

    I'm writing a level editor for my game and would like to know a good way to plot or draw tiles.

    you could use a bitmap of a box(something that represents a grid), and place this across the window,

    or better yet, if that's a 2d game, use java instead, you can generate one very very quick,

    Here is what I have for far:

    As you can see you can't plot or draw any tiles to the map and this is the part I need help on.

    hey, here's some sample code that you might want to check out.

    http://k2wrpg.org
    it's written in VB

    goto downloads and get the 'current' source code.
    the mapping system uses bitmaps and tiles, w/ 5 layers to work with.
