This is a hands-on tutorial which, step by step, takes you through the creation of a simple mission which has a working auto map.

Also, I have written a short tutorial on how to draw thief maps using Paint Shop Pro's Layers:

As always, feedback is most welcome.

The optional TxtToBin.exe tool works fine on '98, but I've just tested it on Windows2000, and it seems to only work if you run it from the command line without using quotes around the text-file's path.

I know how to fix this and will publish a new version as quickly as possible.

The Win2000 problem has been sorted out now.

Second draft of the automap tutorial is now online.

I hope to be adding this to DromED Central soon.
