I spent some time today preparing the custom map I will use. After much hassle, I've finally managed to correctly display the map in the game. I even got the background all functioning.
Here is the second sneak peak.
It's not from any particular scene. It's just a screenshot of it functioning. Only a very small portion did not show up but can EASILY be patched up with a sprite. It will be amazing when it all comes to life! Tomorrow, I expect to complete the scenario involving this map. This is where the doors with faces appear. It is also where the contest winner's Magnetman entry will appear. It is very exciting to see this progress being made.
