I've made the beginning of a game where you see a guy from a top-down perspective. So far the map is a matrix that consists of either Floor or Obstacle. I have made two 32x32 bitmaps for those tiles, and for the character too, of course. I load the character into a PictureBox, and he looks alright after I set the AutoSize property. But I draw the map directly from file to the form. Screenshot: http://forum.sweclockers.com/attachment.php?s=&postid=2007862 The code for randomizing the map and drawing it:

Private Sub Form1_Paint(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs) Handles MyBase.Paint
randomize
dim generator as Double
dim i,j, MAPSIZE, hasPlayerPos as Integer
MAPSIZE = 7
dim map2(MAPSIZE, MAPSIZE) as String
for j = 0 to MAPSIZE
for i = 0 to MAPSIZE
generator = Rnd()
if generator < 0.3
map2(i,j)="Obstacle"
else
if hasPlayerPos = 1
map2(i,j)="Floor"
else
map2(i,j)="Player"
hasPlayerPos = 1
end if
End If
label1.Text += map2(i,j)
next
label1.Text += "|"
next
' --- START DRAWING MAP ---
'Dim g1 As Graphics
'g1 = Me.CreateGraphics
'Dim beam As New Pen(Color.Red)
'g1.DrawLine(beam,1,1,34,24)
Dim MyImage1 As Image
Dim x as Int16
for j = 0 to MAPSIZE
for i = 0 to MAPSIZE
if map2(i,j) <> "Player"
myimage1 = Image.FromFile("C:\Documents and Settings\Anders\Mina dokument\anders\Visual Studio Projects\Tactics\" & map2(i,j) & ".bmp")

e.Graphics.DrawImage(myimage1, new Point(i*myimage1.Width,j*myimage1.Height))
end if
Next
Next
End Sub


Obviously VB knows that the images are 32x32, since that is how far it "jumps" when drawing the tiles. However, for some reason it draws them too big so that they don't fit! ------------------ "Kaka e gott" - Me Current project: An RPG with tactical, real-time combat with a realistic damage system, and randomly generated world and dialogue.

Nevermind, I solved it

There was an overloaded function that took four integers, where the last two were the height and width of the image.

I don''t know why I had to do it thought, I mean VB should''ve taken care of that by itself?
