The component is an easy little of library for selecting tiles for in a mapeditor.
Its also known as tile blending or tile transition blending
the tiles themselves are an array of images, where only the offset is relevant inside this module. That is, you will only be manipulating integer.
The basic layout :
The tiles are sorted in categories :
TTexture = record
name : string;
default : integer;
each tile has a few properties :
TTile = record
offset : word;
terrain_type : byte;
blend_type : byte;
from this tileblending is possible and the component itself should handle the lowlevel management of selecting correct tiles according to the blend states and behavior described in attached .RTF document.
After looking at the RTF document, please allow me to answer your questions unanswered in the document.
A demo should demostrate that tileblending functionality is working.
