Hi, I have been working with tile maps from files and got a lot of things worked out. Right now I'm messing around with rendering only what the person can see, and not drawing stuff outside the screen. For testing, I'm doin a semi small screen with constant dimensions, just to test the idea. Everything works fine and dandy except when the camera moves, the screen thats drawn moves too, but at a slower rate. So if you're zoomed in, it looks normal for a while, but then it starts to move too far away and then its blackness =( Here's my camera move left, and the other move functions are pretty much the same:
void Camera::moveLeft()
{
	D3DXVECTOR3 vDirection;

	D3DXVec3Normalize(&vDirection, &(vLookAtPt - vEyePt));
	D3DXVec3Cross(&vDirection, &vDirection, &vUp);
	D3DXVec3Normalize(&vDirection, &vDirection);

        /*
        Below is used to make it so you move faster when zoomed out
        */
	vDirection *= (int)(1 + (vEyePt.y - vLookAtPt.y) / 6);

	vEyePt += vDirection * moveRate;
	vLookAtPt += vDirection * moveRate;
}

/*
moveRate is 0.03f
*/

Here's a piece of my render() function:
for(int x = camera.vLookAtPt.x + 11; x > camera.vLookAtPt.x - 11; x--)
	{
		if(abs(x) < map->width)
		{
			for(int z = camera.vLookAtPt.z - 11; z < camera.vLookAtPt.z + 11; z++)
			{
				if(abs(z) < map->height)
				{
					d3ddev->SetTexture(0, textures[map->tiles[abs(x)][abs(z)]]);

					D3DXMatrixTranslation(&matTranslate, x * 0.8, 0.0f, z * 0.8);
					d3ddev->SetTransform(D3DTS_WORLD, &(matTranslate));
					d3ddev->DrawPrimitive(D3DPT_TRIANGLESTRIP, 0, 2);
				}
			}
		}
	}

I have a feeling it has something to do with Camera moving at such a small rate, it can become things like 0.5, but the tile drawing draws things in blocks of 0.8 (tile size, if this is abnormal tell me, I have no clue what 'standard sizes' are, and im using 64x64 png image). Thanks.
