Monster generators are normally invisible pressure plates. You step on some cell and it generates a monster on some other cell. Then the generator gets disabled for a while.
This is bearable on DM1, but on DM2 it's the constant flood in some areas, even if you don't move...

Play his original DM map (if you have AmigaOS 3.x) as it has advantages like being more system friendly, no copy protection, HD installable, magic mapping, drinking from fountains without a container, clicking on walls to detect if they are invisible, etc.
And last version has integrated csb utility disk
It can also play the end sequence from the pc version.

What ? "Mostly" ? Speak if you know something

I use an average. When previously you had 50% chances of gaining 1 point, now you'll gain that point every two levels.

Well, for some spells the logic is hard to find...
