Square to Isometric Conversion Scripts

These are a couple of scripts I made that together will convert a set of coordinates on a square grid to a position on the screen where something should be drawn to give an isometric effect.

With these scripts, you can do collision checks in a square grid, which is much easier than on an isometric one usually, then draw it as if it were an isometric game all along.

Glad you liked it. I was thinking about making an isometric game, but didn't want to write physics in isometric, so I made this.

Sometime I may add functions to get just one of the coordinates, but anyone with enough sense to look inside the scripts can easily make their own.

well, i don't really get what you could use this for, but cool anyway!
