Im wondering if anyone has a good example of a somewhat flawless scrolling platformer type game. ive made MANY attempts, and everything i try seems to have many seemingly unfixible and sometimes unexplainable glithces, particularly in the area of making impassible tiles/objects....

if anyone has something i could use (with credit in the game of course) or look at or something, id be eternally grateful.

thanks.
ian.

Well, i don't know how far you've been, but try this tutorial i've written some time ago:

http://www.tntbasic.com/learn/maptutorial/maptutorial.php

the downloadable files include an example with impassable tiles (though no gravity)

if people want a tutorialabout making more complex platformers, i could write it though

Exact map collisions

In my game I'm working on I've made exact tile collisions.
The collisions work great and the code tells you what type of tile is below the player, above the player, and to the left and right of the player.

If you relly want this code I could extract it out of my game and give you a tutorial on how to use the it.

Thanks,
Jacob
