Don’t you just love it when someone else does your job for you? As part of my recently completed Tiled tutorial series I was considering doing a pretty detailed tutorial on integrating it into one of the modern C# based game engines. One engine certainly up for consideration was the Wave Engine, somewhat recently featured in the Closer Look At series. Well thankfully I didn’t, because they went ahead and did it for me!
From the WaveEngine blog:
Using TiledMap to create your 2D game level
With TiledMap, developing 2D games in WaveEngine will not be the same anymore. Tiled maps have been used for a long time in games, now you can load and integrate TiledMap (.TMX) files, created by theTiled Map Editor (http://www.mapeditor.org/), the most popular map editor based in tiles. With Tiled, you can easily design your 2D map levels and run in WaveEngine like a charm.
Load a TiledMap (.tmx) in WaveEngine
1. Install WaveEngine.TiledMap NuGet package
First of all, you need to install WaveEngine.TiledMap NuGet package into your Game solution. This action allows you to use the TiledMap components into your project:
With the NuGet TiledMap package, the process is actually quite simple. They also have a Tiled map example available on Github.
