Hello! I was wondering if there are a better way of creating a pre-defined map(no random map generator) than this method here:
//First row of drawing map
                      DrawSprite(roadN, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 0, 0, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(sign, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 70, 0, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(bush, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 140, 0, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(tree, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 210, 0, 70, 70); 
                      DrawSprite(tree, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 280, 0, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(tree, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 350, 0, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(tree, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 420, 0, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(tree, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 490, 0, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(grass, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 560, 0, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(grass, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 630, 0, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(grass, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 700, 0, 70, 70);
                      //Second row of drawing map
                      DrawSprite(roadN, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 0, 70, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(bush, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 70, 70, 70, 70); 
                      DrawSprite(tree, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 140, 70, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(tree, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 210, 70, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(house, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 280, 70, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(tree, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 350, 70, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(tree, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 420, 70, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(tree, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 490, 70, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(tree, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 560, 70, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(bush, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 630, 70, 70, 70);
                      //Third row of drawing map
                      DrawSprite(bridgeN1, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 0, 140, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(water, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 70, 140, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(water, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 140, 140, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(water, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 210, 140, 70, 70); 
                      DrawSprite(bridgeN1, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 280, 140, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(watertS, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 350, 140, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(tree, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 420, 140, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(bush, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 490, 140, 70 ,70);
                      DrawSprite(tree, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 560, 140, 70, 70);
                      DrawSprite(tree, screen, NULL, NULL, 70, 70, 630, 140, 70, 70);
                      //Fourth row of drawing map



And if it is. How do i do it? Thanks for any help!

You mean, something like:

const int map_width = 11;
const int map_height = 3;

SOME_TYPE* map_data[] =
{
{ roadN, sign, bush, tree, tree, tree, tree, tree, grass, grass, grass, },
{ roadN, bush, tree, tree, house, tree, tree, tree, tree, bush, bush },
{ bridgeN1, water, water, water, bridgeN1, watertS, tree, bush, tree, tree, },
};


for(int row = 0; row<map_height; ++row)
for(int col = 0; col<map_width; ++col)
DrawSprite(map_data[col+row*map_width], screen, NULL, NULL,
70, 70, row*70, col*70, 70, 70);

Alternatively, something similar to:

map.txt

|SBTTTTTGGG
|BTTHTTTTBB
bWWWbWTBTTB



#include <algorithm>
#include <vector>
#include <string>
#include <iomanip>
#include <fstream>

struct MapData
{
int width;
int height;
std::vector<SOME_TYPE*> data;
};

SOME_TYPE* TranslateMapFile(char ch)
{
switch(ch)
{
default : return dummy_sprite;
case '|': return roadN;
case 'S': return sign;
case 'G': return grass;
case 'B': return bush;
case 'T': return tree;
case 'W': return water;
case 'b': return bridgeN1;
case 'H': return house;
};
}

void LoadMap(const std::string& filename, MapData& map)
{
std::ifstream ifs(filename.c_str());

MapData tmp;
ifs >> tmp.width >> tmp.height;

while(!ifs.eof())
{
ifs >> std::ws;

std::string line;
std::getline(ifs, line);

for(int i=0; i<line.size(); ++i)
tmp.data.push_back( TranslateMapFile(line) );
}

std::swap( tmp.width, map.width );
std::swap( tmp.height, map.height );
std::swap( tmp.data, map.data );
}

Yeah something like that. But what would you recommend for the type? int's doesn't work. Neither do chars.


I used SOME_TYPE* because I don't know what the types of tree, house and so on are. I suspect they're pointers to some type of sprite data structure, but since I don't know what it's called in your program, I made something up. That much should have been obvious [wink]
