I sorta Know how the tilemaps work but what I dont know is how to link one tilemap to another

Code:
------------    -----------------
[tilemap 1 ]    [tilemap 2      ]
[          ]    [               ]
[          ]    [               ]
[          ]    [               ]
[          x    x               ]
------------    -----------------

I dont know how to link the 'x' on tilemap one to the 'x' on tilemap two.

Just write some collision-detection code that says

If you reach the edge of one tilemap
Then
Draw the next tilemap
End

and a nifty trick, you can have decimals in the matrices and Xlib ignores them...so you can make diffrent types of the same thing (multiple chest contents, breakable walls, ect) without using the same sprite multiple times

other neat tricks: you can create envirometal efects by having a tile map over a tile map, you can make animated sprite sets by switching the picture in the syntax each time the screen updates (or every so many times...depends on how much/fast you want the movement) though it could get complex if you use more than 96 sprites at one time then it gets a bit more complicated though, you can make grey scale by a similar method to animated sprites, but you would have to switch screens alot faster but it will realy slow your games down, if you use the text command, a -1 preceding the x and y cordinates, you will get home screen font (though that is pretty widely known)
