PostSubject: How do you use Tiled?   Thu Jun 28, 2012 6:57 pm

I was wondering how to use Tiled with ALttP. I know how to use Tiled (Somewhat), but I don't know how to get it to open the Alttp overworld, OR how to give it the tileset. Can someone help me?

What is tiled exactly? A GFX editor for a link to the past?

No, it's an overworld editor. I know Aeranima is using it for Renascence of Evil.

I'm using Tiled myself to draft my Overworld.

What you want to do is:

1 - Find an image (right now, I'm just using .PNGs) from ALttP that is actually to scale. It's kind of hard to really find them, but it's not impossible. Your BEST bet, though, is making them yourself using Hyrule Magic. Find the Area you want to use as a tileset, do a prtscr (printscreen), open up an image editor other than MS Paint, paste, crop as needed, and save.

2 - Open up Tiled. Create a new map and select orthogonal, 256x256 map size, and 16x16 tile size. This will give you a canvas exactly the size of ALttP's Overworld.

3 - Go to "Map", select "New tileset..." and select "browse". find that image you want to use as a tileset, set the tile width and height to 26 (so that you can have 16x16 tiles, Very Happy).



Word of note: if you make your own tilesets as PNGs, and they have transparency, be sure to be aware of whether or not you check the "use transparent color" box, as it will affect how the transparent area is display.


You can see what I'm doing with Tiled here.

If you need any help with anything concerning Tiled, lemme know. I have some stuff that helps me with my setup that could be useful to you.

Hope this helps!
