# Pixels per tile

I was wondering how many pixels are in each tile? Also what is a good speed for normal platforms? Thanks.

32 pixels per side. How many pixels in a tile, you can figure out yourself.

The way I guess at speeds is to think: how many tiles do I want the platform to pass through every second? Then I use this:

NUMBER OF TILES PER SECOND * 32 * 256 / 30 = SPEED

1300 gets about 5 tiles per second. But 5 a second is pretty fast.

What do you mean by sides?

A tile is square, is it not? A square has four sides, does it not? One side of this square is 32 pixels.

It's 3232, or 32^2, or 16^(2+2), or 8^(2+2+2), or 4^(2+2+2+2), or 2^(2+2+2+2+2), or 2^(52), using a calculator, you can find out that 52 = 10, so 2^(52) = 2^10.
2^10 can easily be found using the binary table:

1. 2
2. 4
3. 8
4. 16
5. 32
6. 64
7. 128
8. 256
9. 512
10) 1024

So there are 1024 pixels/tile.

Here's more of the binary table:

11)2048
12)4096
...
16)65,536
...
64) approx. 18 * 10^18

Maybe in addition to my current one.
I must fight for the metric system!

BTW, one more post, and you'll have made 2^7 posts!

Use VelocityChooser 1.0, a not-yet-done program that will be bundled with MRG.
