I'm a bit disgrunteled that as I currently have it setup my play map is in the middle of my screen so that it's X,Y has a different value from that of the overall client window. My question is how do others deal with it, do they somehow plug all the graphics into it's own mini-window like a panel or something else or do they just deal with it.
At this point, I need to
load the whole map position the player on the loaded map draw the 480x480 visible map around the player
I guess the two things I'm thinking about as problems are having to indent everything from the full client size and trying to figure out a way to load everything into it's own visible object like a panel so that XY starts at 0,0.
I'm sure someone who has done this before must have some advice, please keep in simple.
