    Couldnt resist creating alittle titlescreen:




    The mapper and map render rewritten and working. Use F1 for Tiles and F2 for blocks. PageUp and PageDown to change Tiles.

    As far as story goes:
    Maybe the guy has been out in the wastes for his whole life. Born without a home.

    Spent the afternoon fixing the editor and bmp importer. Then inspiration struck and I started to create a worldmap.



    1280x800 tiles will make a 40960x25600 pixels map.

    Very nicely done mate.
    I have a suggestion that will probably mean some more work for you but here it goes.

    Can you implement a seperate combat/tactical screen? Something like a square or hex based field (with some random features like boulders etc) that you can play TBS style?

    Also in a similar vein, can you implement another seperate (pop-up) screen to be used with puzzles. Thet way one could insert things like mastermind, battleship, pipes and similar game codes to create hacking or lockpicking or whatever mini games :D

    Weapon class:
    - Bullets Max
    - Bullets Current
    - Damage Max
    - Aim (the amount of chance that you hit)
    - Actionpoint

    Is this enough?

    I double-clicked ''Project1.exe'' and got an error so I downloaded SDL.dll, now I get

    ''The procedure entry point SDL_getenv could not be located in the dynamic link library SDL.dll."

    Any idea what to do? :/

    Edit: Nevermind, I updated the SDL.dll to a more up to date version (the previous one I downloaded wasn't as current), and then got another error. I subsequently updated all the SDL files that the game came with and now it's working.

    It is really funny to see this game, I would never play this game even if there is no other game to play. It will be like playing a game of our grand fathers.

    I hit the wall and stopped the development when the lack of story didnt push me forward. So any writers out there who wants to make an "8-bit game" feel free to post or mail me something.

    I've been working with deadlus for a couple of months on "The Wastelander". Expect a demo, possibly this summer. Here are some teaser screenshots:

    I like how you draw inspiration from 1988' Wasteland. I'm seriously expecting to play this one.
