Hello,
I am doing something really fundamentally wrong but i can not put my finger on it. Yes i know the code is a mess and it should be much better but i am at least trying to get the concept down. What i am trying to do is have a character move around the screen and shoot on a tiled back drop. I did this. The problem is i want enemies to spawn at a specific location(The 0 squares)(I used nick gravelyn's tutorial and i liked the colors of the squares so i used them) and it is not working. I am not sure how to get the enemies to draw and collide with the bullets on the zero square. What happens is nothing is drawn. It worked up until i added the nested for loop and it drew everything in the center. Now it does not even draw. What i want to accomplish is drawing the enemies on the zero squares and having them be able to collide and vanish from the screen. Here is my code. I put it in the brackets but i am afraid it might be too large. I thought the code sometimes scrolls if it gets to large(Like in the preview).
Thanks for reading and any help you may be able to give

Ok, well I have just downloaded and compiled you code to see the problem.

All of your Zombies are being drawn on the same sq (1024 * 768) go down to the very bottom corner of the map and you'll see it. you are not Updating it anywhere so it will not move.

However a bullet collision works for :)

also, i think this is a very inefficiently loop:
you are going through each zombie in the list on EVERY tile and not doing anything. Swap the foreach() and if() statements

for (int x = 0; x < tileMapWidth; x++)
{
for (int y = 0; y < tileMapHeight; y++)
{
int textureIndex = level1[y, x];

if (textureIndex == 0)
{
foreach(Sprite guy in zombies)
{
guy.Position.X = x * tileWidth - (int)cameraPosition.X;
guy.Position.Y = y * tileHeight - (int)cameraPosition.Y;
}
}

}
}




if you want the all to randomly spawn on a 0 indexed tile, I recommend a spawn control when you Load()

e.g.

public void SpawnEnamies()
{
/* Get a List<Vector2> of all the positions of tiles which have a 0 index
*
*
* randomly generate a number with Random r = new Random()
* r.Next(VectorList.Count);
*
* Spawn a zombie at this Point and set a velocity
*
*/

}
protected override void LoadContent()
{
..........
//Setting up Sprite[]'s
// SpawnEnamies()
..........
}




The bullet collision is working fine as far as I can see;)

Hello again,
Thanks for the advice on the useless loop i put in. I feel so stupid but for some reason i can not wrap my brain around spawning the enemies at random locations for the life of me. I decided to make it truly random and use Random rand = new Random(). But i am having a problem. This is my naivete but they still all spawn at the same location. I know i am doing something really wrong but still my brain is not kicking in. I do not want to make excuses for myself but this is getting very frustrating. Here is the code

foreach (Sprite guy in zombies)
{
Vector2 temppos;
float temp;
Random rand = new Random();
temp = (float)rand.NextDouble();
temppos.X = temp * 1000;
temp = (float)rand.NextDouble();
temppos.Y = temp * 1000;


guy.Position = temppos;

}

This is what i want it to do.
Generate a random number. Multiply it by 1000 (to get a range from 0 to 1000)and have that as the x position. Do the same for the y. At that point make this the new zombies position. What is happening is they are all spawning at the same location. Is it random is generating the same random number? Am i using the foreach loop wrong? What should i do? Can you post an example of the correct way. The only thing that has changed is the loop is removed and the following code was put int the load method.

Thanks

2 things:

1/ Very very close there, Rand.NextDouble() Selects a random double from 0.0 to 1.0 this mean you'd be seeting the position at (0,0) all the time. Use

tempPos.X = rand.Next(MAXWIDTH);
temppos.Y = rand.NExt(MAXHEIGHT);

This picks a random INTEGER between 0 and your maxWIDTH/HEIGHT

2/ In your Update method:

//for (int x = 0; x < tileMapWidth; x++)
//{
// for (int y = 0; y < tileMapHeight; y++)
// {
// int textureIndex = level1[y, x];
// if (textureIndex == 0)
// {
// foreach (Sprite guy in zombies)
// {
// guy.Position.X = x * tileWidth - (int)cameraPosition.X;
// guy.Position.Y = y * tileHeight - (int)cameraPosition.Y;
// }
// }
// }
//}




This is not Helping your cause
At the end of the update method you where setting the position of ALL the Zombies at a tile which had a Zero Index, this is why the zombies always draw where they did, coincidently that was the last tile on your map with the Index '0'.
Remove this loop and you will see them Drawn at the correct locations :)



EDIT :
There is one Problem with the code at the moment, all the Zombies are drawn correctly however they move when the camera is moved, make the Zombies stay in the same place (draw them and subtract the camera Offsets) if you want to see them :)

Thanks for the help. Everything is working as it should and all is good.
