I think you mean the size of map tp 300x300?
Tiles are the things you do on the map like, boxes or floor and this can be only 256
Yeah!

you are probably doing something wrong if you really need more than 256 different tiles.

use env_image and env_sprite instead. don't try to put everythng into your tileset.

the reason is that you normally don't need more tiles than 256 and that I can save the map in a better and smaller format this way (1 byte per tile)

Wait a sec... I'm being confused... Did u mean ...

- 256 is the tileset and not Map Size (256x256) ???

If yes then I can make Map Size bigger than 256x256???

you can't have more then 265 different tiles. But the mapsize can of course be bigger (300x300)

Now we can change direction of tile so more than 256 tiles is unneeded.
