01. Installing Requirements

Introduction

Before we start creating levels with Tiled, we will need to install a few requirements.

1. FlatRedBall

First, we need to install FlatRedBall, which can be found on the FlatRedBall Download Page. You may already have this installed if you have have been working with FlatRedBall.

2. Tiled

Next, we need to install the Tiled program. Tiled is a free, open source, cross platform editor for creating tile-based levels. We will use Tiled to create levels which can include tiled layers, collision, and entities.

Tiled can be downloaded on the Tiled page.

Conclusion

That’s it! Glue automatically includes everything you need to use Tiled, so you can get started right away.
