Map Scrolling

Note to reader: I found this post buried deep in side a tutorial writing thread, that never made it's way here. I apologize for the brevity, but hopefully others will find this sample code as useful as I have! - Hadlock

« Reply #304 on: September 14, 2011, 05:24:01 am » Thanks for the kind words Nikolai, it's really appreciated And thank you Isher, for sharing those changes; it's great to know how to move to the latest versions without breaking stuff (I'll do that at some point). Stitch, I'll be using a VCS soon, and will probably upload a clean version to an online repository when it's finished

It seems a popular change to the code is to introduce scrolling, but it's also the hardest. I know, I coded and re-coded the "ultimate" scrolling code many times now... the first attempts were really difficult and I wasn't even sure why it was working Anyway, I'm preparing an extra on that.

So, without further ado... here's the map scrolling code for you to download. I'll try to write the explanation soon. If you find any bugs please tell me, it's not 100% tested

Tip: run a diff against the latest tutorial code if you want to highlight just the changes.

(edit: corrected bug! didn't take long to find one...)

This code has been updated to use libtcod 1.5.1.
