I have spent two weeks on this task and its to no avail,i hope your expertise can help me.
I want to create a simple set of activities that allow the shortest path to be calculated between two points on a tile based map.The ANDROID game /project should allow:
User to select there starting position i.e tile (x,y) and their ending position i.e tile(x,y)
The path should then be drawn and I want the path drawn to have clickable tiles(which i will assign) so that i can display a popup to the user i.e (you just walked over a golden coin)-i require no score or any of that functionality.
I want the ability to navigate between floors somehow.
I want blockages to be in place(which i set) and which the algorithm understands and recalculates
Lastly i want the user to have the choice of selecting the shortest path or not.
Can anyone help me on this with tutorials or even provide me with a short example.Its relatively simple I just don't have the skills you guys do to put it in action.I have found JAVA based examples but I don't know how to convert these to android.
Thanks in advance
