hello i was wondering how would you do a 2d tile based game.. but the tank/air plane/whatever won''t turn just the map itself will rotate... so you would just plot each tile rotated? or do you have another better idea? thanks, http://qsoft.cjb.net

I suggest you just tile the entire map that could be displayed onto an offscreen buffer, then rotate that. If you are using DX then you can get away with it at least by mapping it onto a surface and rotating that...
