I really like this tutorial, it is easilly understandable and very well explained. However there is still one thing that struck me.

How can I see the actual numbers of the raw id of an object? I know that it is stored as ascii 256 but even if I put the table next to it: http://www.flexcomm.com/library/ASCII256.htm

I can't see how these dots are connected.
Would you care explaining how you got these numbers?

(It might also be usefull adding the ascii table inside the tutorial if it is connected in any way)

char*256+char2 etc for all 4 chars. They are combined into 1 number. You can use the ascii lib to convert an integer to an ascii string if you want to see the ascii representation of the number. To do that, int-int/256*256 is the first char, int/256, repeat until u get all 4 chars out ; ).

Displaying 'hpea' displays it in base 10 format, which is 'h'*256+'e' etc. I displayed it in base 10 purposefully to show that 'hpea' was not "hpea" and that it has an actual base 10 value to it ;p.

Thank you for the explenation. I guess that when using this equation in order to convert it to base 10 it would need no help from the actual ascii table then xD?
My work on the table in my previous post was for nothing :( I can still make the second table if anyone is interested... xD

Actually I stopped at Base Conversion, hence my question :S
I did understand everything so far so I'll go through with this another time.

I'll walk this through when I have more time.

Hi Nestharus.
i think it's really cool all your work.
about inserting numbers with different base in a colection. inserting greater bases at the begining and lower bases at the end helps to reduce the final number size?
in a common multiplication does not. but with the "adding" number i got the doubt...

Hi nestharus...

i'm currently using your save-load-code system on my rpg map (enthahsaras tales) and works perfectly.

the data that is stored is:
- 12 slots for item inventory with max=1501
- 12slots for items chargues with max=51
- maximun exp=980000
- 3 atributed points max=1381
- 100000/10 for gold
- 1000 for lumber
- hero type max=61

i implemented your system about two months ago, today still work cool and perfectly.

I have gone through the whole map and I must say Im amazed.

Its great, its interactive and I learned a lot.
The way it works is little bit harder to understand for people like me who have no experience it this but I understood all lessions, only got a little bit too lazy to calculate in later lessions :D

Very good map overall
