Over the march break, a couple of friends and I want to start a MMORPG (call me ambitious).
Anyway, we wanted to create our game with an isometric view, similar to Dransik [www.dransik.com] (yeah, I know it's not really isometric...).
I figured that I could just store the tiles in a 2d array, or 3d if I wanted to make layered tiles, which I probably will, and then slant it. Now my question is: How do I translate the mouse coordinates to whatever grid square (diamond) it is over. I can get it within one, but not exactly. Exams are coming up, so I've been too busy studying to work on it.
Thanks for any help
