When designing a war-strategy game, I am curious to the methods in setting up the diagonal grid commonly used. The simple solutions I have developed are either design two buffers one for the normal rectangular grid displayed with diamond bitmaps while the other buffer is used for a type of offset to the normal grid. The second solution is to use a rotational algorithm to rotate the screen, which could be consuming in future optimizations. What are the current game engine designs for Diamond Grids and the tiles?
