: [Audyssey] Randomising Montezuma's Revenge. If we are going to be competing for a high score, the adition of treasures and monsters would enable a higher score based on the luck of the draw. I like the idea of having dual modes--one classic and the other randomized if it can be done. -- God

Hi, My guess is the easiest way to create maps for an end user is to use xml files with a series of variables. Then, all the end user would need do is phil in the values they want for walls, monsters, etc and drop it in the folder. For example, WallBottom=30 WallTop=21, and so on. That is

Hi Thomas and list, ok, here come my thoughts about randomization: I personally love the idea of Monty to be as close to the original Atari-Game as possible and when I remember the orginal correctly, there was no randomization in it. For me it would break the originality of the game to have
