    Making a map


    Hello, Im wondering how people have done there maps in games? I saw an RPG allegro tutorial where they put their map into an array. It was like:

    1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1,
    1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 1,
    1, 2, 3, 2, 2, 2, 4, 1,
    1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 1,
    1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1,

    Where 1 equaled wall, 2 equaled grass, 3 equaled the player and 4 equaled the enermy. And did it like that.

    What other ideas have people got to work?

    - Cheers, Daniel
