I want to make a tile-based platformer in AS3.
I want my game to read an external maps file (in xml or json or somethimg similar) to draw a tile-based map.
I've seen loads of tutorials for this in AS2 and other languages, and the few I've found in AS3 are either incomplete or filled with extra unnecessary features. I just want to be able to draw a basic map from sprites in Flash.
Any links or information to point me in the right direction would be appreciated.
