Have a look at http://www.gamasutra.com/features/20000403/turner_01.htm. At the end of the article you'll find some usefull links. However I've seen that there are a lot of methods for landscape rendering. I'm currently looking for the method that fits best for my project.

Hope that's something you can use.

Isn''t it fun having pre-teens on the message board?

FF7 landscapes are prerendered. They take a background bitmap and draw it on the screen first, then draw the 3d characters and objects. If you mean the world-map view, it''s probably just an object like everything else, without any special "terrain" code.

Hey DEE, you really like FF, uh?! Didn''t you ask ''bout the messages? Well, I believe that landscapes are ready images on the disk and it just prints the guy in its position. Simple(to program, not to do the images)

Thanks, Arthur(rockslave)
