mismatch between objects' GID and his correct texture image #9

on my engine, I am loading objects as sprites. I see a mismatch between the GID and the image rectangle that is suppose to use, not sure if this is a bug or I don't know how to use this module to load tmx objects as sprites.

Here, a test game:

The map on Tiled:

Here is the code that I use to A) load all the tiles of the map and B) to load every object as a sprite:

def loadmap(self, mapfilepath=None):
    """ Load the map of the corresponding scene.

    Not need to implement this method.
    All map files must be read in
    tmx format, Tiled Map Editor Software"""

        self.__tmxmapfile = common.settings.joinpaths(
                                        "maps", mapfilepath)
        self.tmxmapdata = tmxloader.load_tmx(self.__tmxmapfile)

        heightlist = []
        widthlist = []

        # By layer.

                    texsize = sfml.Vector2(tilewidth, tileheight)

                # Stores the object, no matters if a tuple with vertexs 
                # or a sfml's rectangle
                for gid, flag in gids:
                    logging.debug("real_gid: {0}, gid:"
                                  " {1}, flag: {2}".format(real_gid,

                    self.tmxmapdata.images[gid] = quad

Ok, I changed some parts of my code and the game test works as expected!

There stills more work for me that needs to be done:

thank you very much! :D
