MapEditor

This program allows you to edit isometric map games for windows using DirectX. It's distributed in open-source so you can contribute to make a better program. All source code is available in Pascal and compile right under Delphi 4. ( Did not check other versions but it must be OK ).

Features

Draw isometric tiles in a custom Map with your mouse
Put the sprites anywhere on your  map
Construct animations with the editor
Use the tile manager to define multiple tiles on just one bitmap
Preview it on DirectX
Fast code to draw it really fast on slow computers ( on preview mode )
And a lot more that can not be listed
