That map editor is great. I found it about 4 months ago. But I don't think he's just looking for just a map editor. I believe what he's looking for is an entire library. The closest thing I've seen to that is CDX. I don't have an address for it off hand but if you do a search on www.metacrawler.com for "CDX and Direct X" You'll be sure to find it.

I recommend starting with the directx sample code of a side scroling game called fox bear.

It's part of the MSDN documentation library.

I am not sure how a library could help you.
Originally (DOS days) I would write a graphics library that contained blitting of tiles, flipping and VR retrace routines but now (with DirectX) you don't have to worry about this. So all that's really left is to actually write the main game loop. (Ok, you still need some file, memory and error handling primatives that could be put into a library).

But anyway check out the above sample code to see what I mean.
