Well, if I were you, I'd learn DirectX....

There is a tile map example in the Code Library. You have to set the date filter to "all dates" instead of "last week" though....

Well, the thread (post) that I have has several things on making world maps, and things of the like. Since I am making a game myself, and stumbling upon problems, you can find a lot of answers in my post (Help With RPG's)

Here, try this. This is a tile-map editor that I put together. You can use with any .bmp file as the tile set. To see the original post on this, take a look at this thread:

Enjoy, and let me know what you think.

Taking a map made with my editor would fairly simple to load into a game. Look at the cbLoad_Click function in my Map Editor code; you could do something very similar within your game.
