So, this past week I wrote a mapLoading class that loads maps from Mappy. I modified the exported files a bit to suit my needs a bit better, but it's more or less the same.
So today, after the other dude got it loading maps from a hardcoded tile array, I got my class to work and it now loads maps from files. The program will load the map and let you scroll around to the boundaries, so i'd say we're making pretty good progress for going into the third week.
So, I present to you this screenshot. We just tried to get a test map on the screen and we have succeeded.
