Well, another issue i've been having I realize i may be able to get help or at least a better understanding at these wonderfull forums.
Currently, in my RPG map editor, i save maps by:
1st) Load all data in a string
In the string i load data in a fashion like:
MapName|MapInfo|MapInfo|MapInfo then a line break. After that i scroll through all the tiles and save each tile data like: TileX,TileY,MoreData,...| Until its done. So my string roughly looks like:
2nd) And then i simply save it to a file.
This way when i go to open the file. I split the string by that line break, and then split the first half by the | character and now i have all that data. Then i go through the second half extracting all the tile information and loading it into my type.
My question is... Is there any easier, maybe more professional way of going about this?
