Learn something.

Pixel art, composing music, mapping, getting involved into the background world development... there is a lot you can do.

Knowledge of the world. Knowing how to use Tiled and the tilesets. The ability to create maps that are not dull and fit the tileset. Drawing concepts of the map layout is not a must but I would recommend it. As with most things you'll learn the most along the way.

I was actually going to try to delve into the code and write my own editor until I saw that you guys use tiled :) I'm just kind of getting into TMW, but it seems awesome so far and I want to contribute.

Map making

Post by Pottsi » Thu Nov 22, 2007 12:05 am

Ok, i dont fully understand if its where i make a map and send it to u guys somehow, or if i make a map and something else happens. But my main point is that i cant seem to get that tiled thing on my comp so i can make maps?
