Wow, just wowI spent the whole day working on getting something going. I thought I would build a little momentum. But I couldn't even load a tmx script that I was planning on using. I went through Richard's tutorials and tried using his tmx script in there. I kept getting arcane errors for my maps. I don't think it even works on maps that have a Tiled Layer Format other than zlib compressed. At one point I got an error that a method needed EXACTLY 1 argument. When I tried to find a way to send one argument, I was told it needed 2 OR MORE arguments. When I changed it back, it needed exactly 1 again.
So, I may have a hard time pumping something out over the next few days. I will be lucky if I don't smash my head against the wall for that matter.
In the meantime, I am going to just review some other code. I would really like to move forward on the game, but I just don't think that it's going to be as simple as I thought to get Tiled to play nicely with me.
If anyone has any suggestions to make this easier, please tell.
