Now the Map Container

create a new movie called container this will be the heart of the engine, in the frame add this

// adds the  man movie
attachMovie("man", "man", 702);
setProperty ("man", _x, "30");
setProperty ("man", _y, "30");
// arrays for level.... 0 == wall, 1 == floor

M16 = new Array(0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0);

// vars for duplication
n1 = 0;
n2 = 0;
n3 = 0;
// go through arrays and attach wall/floor movie clips as needed
while (n1<18) {
    while (n2<27) {
        if (eval("M" add n1)[n2] == 0) {
            // wall
            attachMovie("w", "w" add n1 add "-" add n2, n3);
            eval("w" add n1 add "-" add n2)._x = (n2*20);
            eval("w" add n1 add "-" add n2)._y = (n1*20);
        }
        if (eval("M" add n1)[n2] == 1) {
            // floor
            attachMovie("floor", "floor" add n1 add "-" add n2, n3);
            eval("floor" add n1 add "-" add n2)._x = (n2*20);
            eval("floor" add n1 add "-" add n2)._y = (n1*20);
        }
        n3++;
        n2++;
    }
    n2 = 0;
    n1++;
}

So the first bit attaches the man movie to depth 702 and then sets the Map arrays the 0's are walls and the 1's are the floors. Then the next bit attaches the movies depending on the number in the array

this needs the linkage name mapcontainer
