Admitedly I did not read the docs, but I tried MapStation and hit Load IFF, picked the IFF file, loaded the map, then couldn't figure out what to do next! That stupid animation to bring the functions up is a complete waste of time aswell.
PowerCrawler you right click to access the tiles, drag a block around the tiles you want, and just plonk them down. Nice intuition interface and menus, system friendly and very configurable.
Regarding MapStation, what's the advantage of storing the tiles in memory vertically? Seems more logical to me to store the tiles horizontally! Am I missing something?
