I assume your questions were answered? I've been pondering them ever since you asked them, since they were a bit vague and undefined. I've finally figured out what might be sufficiently helpful answers without writing a book, and now I see you have essentially redacted your question?

K75 -
Thank you for responding.
I kind of figured that after 12-15 views and no responses, I was posting in the wrong area.
If you have some ideas, I would much appreciate reading them.
I'm almost certain that I've done DMD maps before, but am drawing a complete blank on the process.
Thanks,
H

Hi,
I don't know your questions but I can tell you for sure you've already made DMD maps ;)

Greetings from The Shire!

@Bilbo,
Thank you for showing that. I was sure I had, but it has been a very long time. The map numbers are in the 500's, and we were all much younger then, (with better memory functions).

The problem is that I go into the DMD screen and select "Edit DMD Map". After fooling around with the terrain, enemies, etc., and then "Launch Mission", I can't finish the map. I kill off everything, but there is no end. I don't know what sets end game conditions (if anything). I tried creating a new map and including an Inhibitor, but killing that doesn't end the game either.

I thought sure there would be a FAQ or tutorial on creating DMD maps and was looking for a link to it.
Thanks,
H

It's Emily Litella time (nevermind).

I don't know what the heck happened, but this time everything worked as expected.
A simple game is now posted up there.
I forgot how much fun DMD games can be.
Thanks,
H

You going to post your sufficiently helpful comments?
Since this is the DMD Map Discussion thread, there just might be some other folks who would look for advice in a "DMD Tutorial" post.

For that matter, I'll probably need a refresher after I go on vacation next month.

memory... :)

I forgot what it was that you originally asked. I thought you figured things out?

If not, ask again, don't delete it, and I'll do my best. Not in the tutorial business, but I might be able to answer the questions that you have.
