    game programming borders without a good shape

    My PACMAN game is not working.
    game programming borders without a good shape-pacman-gif
    I would like to stop my character from going out of bounds.
    Can somebody tell me how to do a non-square border?

    Well nobody is going to tell you anything useful without seeing the source code.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    My suggestion, make all of the parts normalised areas, so for example:

    map uses context as it's normalised area
    each individual map square (so turns, corridors etc) uses the map as it's normalised area, add the map position to it's own when passing the vertices, I count about 31 pieces vertically, I would expect the same horizontally
    actors use the map pieces as their normalised space, would have to examine up to 3 pieces away for borders since the actors will overshoot the normalised boundaries, maybe about 2.5 width & height?
