I have no experience making a 2D tile engine, So I was wondering, where should I go to find the basics? I'm using XNA and C# if that matters. I already know how to draw images to the screen. There's just a few things on making a tile engine that I don't understand. -Making the map scroll as the player walks -Knowing which tile the player and npcs are on. -Loading maps from encrypted data files, and displaying the tiles, npcs, items based on that data. Any tutorials/books/advice/websites that could help answer these questions, would be greatly appreciated.
