Fast Data Loading|
Here is a little trick that I picked up along the way that allows for data
to be loaded quickly. Say for example, that you have a height map that has
been saved to a file, or level data for that matter. It is possible to load
the file with one simple command.
int heightMap =
This trick will load all of the data within the "heightMap.data" file into
the given array. It is important to note that the "heightMap.data" file
must be properly formatted, comma delimited, however this is usually not
hard to resolve. While this technique is only useful with static data
files, I have found this to be a useful technique for quickly loading data
until all of the loading routines are complete.
Any questions, let me know.
