NES Programming #43 – Reworking the map loader

Watch this video on YouTube.

Broken, fixed, and better. The map loading code was changed so that the asset tool can dump the entire map directly in to the file and then we seek into it and decrement our index vs our prior approach where it had the first screen at the beginning and then subsequent rows following. That went pretty quick and then we talked about what we would do for the next stream to get palettes and attributes working again with this new format, furthering our goal of finally getting to tile collision. Thanks for watching! See you on Monday
