I'm currently trying to build an RPG game in JAVA... I would like to make a really good map... Can anyone tell me which program can I use to make one?

this program comes with java source for using the maps, I haven't tried it in Java but I really like the editor.

Am I the only person who creates my own map editor and file formats? :/
I feel like I've been wasting my time.

Thanks for the link, maybe I can save some time by using a pre-made editor.

Is there a name for a "redneck" programmer?

You're not alone, I've made my own game editor a year ago and whenever I needed one I just used that one and build some features on it.
Though that was in C++, I guess I'll have to write an editor for Java from scratch Sad

Why not use the c++ editor to create data to load into your java game?  If your working with binary files then you have to convert values due to endianess, but this is a couple of #define's.  Try googling for 'network byte order'.

Free. Quality. Programmable output.  Tutorial. Image editing.  Perfect. :-)
