About Mappy

  Mappy uses a fairly flexible file format called FMP. All the versions of Mappy and playback libraries use the same FMP files and are backwards compatible. Comprehensive help is included with the files and you should look at that for more information. Use of Mappy and it's libraries is free, I hope you find them useful.

Mappy Source

Note: The playback libraries above contain their own source.

Download Mappy V1.01 C source (47K) (Allegro compiler) I am informed this also compiles under Linux Allegro.

Download MappyWin32 V1.3.11d C source (130K) (Win32 compiler) . Contains all the source required to make the editor. This is useful if you want to add features or plan to port the editor to another OS. Please read the included readsrc.txt file.
