In my Deep Deadly Dungeon game I had maps larger than the view area. What you need to do is to create a viewport and display that on the screen. Here is the code I used to create a viewport. 'get the view coords i = player.pcoord.x - (w / 2) j = player.pcoord.y - (h / 2) If i < 0 Then i = 0 If j < 0...

Re: FB lack serious IDE

FbEdit has everything you need in an IDE including a form designer. I am not sure what else you would need. I have been using it since it first came out and it has met every need I have had in the time I have been using it. I have built both simple and complex applications and it has been a pleasure...
