    Just wondering

    Hey everyone,
    It's been a while since I posted last (been a while since I programmed as well ) I was curious about something.

    Hypothetically, if I were to create a simple grid based game where you walk around and on a certain "square" there would be a castle. How could I possibly go about making it so when the player "entered" the castle, the grid layout would change (think original zelda minus the art hehe) and would represent the interior, and then if the player stepped on the exit, would return to the map the player just came from?

    Just thinking about it...Thanks for your time. -Chap

    If I understood well your question, you could solve this way: define a matrix as the data to be draw on screen. Each position of the matrix could be a pointer to a sprite or any image. You could have multiple constructions in the same position, if you use a matrix of linked lists. If you step out of the castle, you update the draw matrix with a subset of the whole global matrix, ie the world of your game.

    Hope that helps. If I misunderstood your question, sorry.
