Here's that "fakeshot" (you will laugh :)). The inn' gfx are split into
top and bottom - bottom is the same as before: the walls go behind the
character and the veranda uses a base square so it appears abaove the
character when he is under it. Now all it should take is taking the top
half and letting it appear behind the character. so when he comes out of
the barn loft he can walk along the veranda (except above the entrancd
where we use a teleport). I've greyed out these tiles so you can see
what I mean more clearly.

Since there are 2 squares between the floor of the veranda and where the
character will walk along the top AND there are no characters taller
than 1.5 squares there's no risk of any gfx mistakes like peoples head
sticking through the veranda.

As you can (hopefully) see the leftmost part of the barn is split in a
similar way so that when the character goes out of the loft he initially
appears in that crack in the roof - walking back onto this tile will of
course then put him back inside the loft.

As far as I understand the map system this should all be possible.
