    Default Just A Small Question

    Hey my name is Michael, I am currently interested into Hard coding games using java, I have been inspired by mine craft to use java, That I know what it can do & is capable of, I wondering wont sort of coding you would need to use to make a basic Map, Loader & Map Saver for a 2D platforming game, me and my friend have a career which we would like to for fill. And I am just wondering wont sort of process, this would need to take to be achieved, example. The editor, which I built my map in would scan all the blocks in rows and then record a symbol or what not onto simple Txt file. eg [1][1][1][0][6][6][8]
    Assuming if they were different types of blocks. Also when the blocks in one row has finished it would say something like [D] for down and when you open the map using a file loader, it would load the Txt file and print it on the screen, This is just a assumption of what I think how it works, if someone could clarify to me if I am on the right track, or if I am way off... Please post a example, I am 14 so if you could please go into detail. THX

    No you're on the right track. Don't hesitate to experiment. You could start by creating a level using a simple text editor in stead of your own graphical editor and getting something displaying on the screen. That's always my first 'prototype' when creating a game. I start to develop tools later on in the process when I have a more solid idea of what the game needs, otherwise you keep having to adapt your tools to design changes in the game. That is a big waste of time and a bit of a test of your patience.
