Ok, Im pretty much done with the main DM tutorial and I got the feeling that that's not everything, so where do I go from here?

Try the Guide (click on DM InfoCenter). After that, you can either look at the source code of some of the demo programs, or dive into the Reference... some neat stuff tucked away in there!

Err...I mean not tutorial, I meant the guide. Well anyways I think I'll take you up on looking at some of the demo programs and reading the reference.

Every so often, when you have time, you should go look at the guide again. It gives you a brief refresher. I had to read it about 5 times total to make sure I knew everything when I first started out, and even then I had a few errors with my code (which were thankfully pointed out by Dantom along with a nice pointer on how to fix them).

The best program to look at, in my opinion, is Sokoban (in English, "Warehouse Keeper"). It's very small, and very easy to understand, and doesn't bother with the extremely advanced functions, which you can always learn later. And if you're feeling a creative tone, you can always make your own maps for it! =)

Speaking of maps... in fact, I have a database file from a Sokoban game off the net that has literally hundreds of levels (some are repeats... hey, what can you do =P). Its plain text, so you might have problems figuring out the exact placements. If you want, I can upload it, but that's unrelated to what you want to do anyway, so I won't unless you ask. ?=)~



P.S. People can't seem to see the hairdo from "?=)". The guy has a huge lock!
