Hi sroca

Lile everybody else I'd say a huge thanks for all of this. I was going to start creating the classic map, but that seems stupid if you already have it.

I don't know how you'd send it, but if I could have the separate layers that would be great

Thanks for the overview! I feel really stupid, but how do you get the units to move? I'm usually good with computers, but I'm stumped. Maybe I missed something.

Hi, :D
the Units have to be on a different layer and that layer has to be active,

then pick them with the square and move with the Arrow:

Sorry for being a pest, but once I learn there will be a willing new GM. Anyways how do I remove units? (and vice versa)

Just select them the same way and delete! (One thing I've learned is to have a blank level for retreating armies, otherwise the two units sit on top of each other and are impossible to disentangle!)

Thanks. This is actually pretty fun.

Any of you know how to make a transparent selection? I'm trying to get Paint.NET to ignore the whitespace around an area I've copied from Paint or Paint.NET, and I can't seem to get it to do it. The workaround is to delete all of the whitespace around the stuff you want, but that takes time.

Not sure if I understand what you mean. If you're just looking to delete everything that's white then use the "Magic Wand" which can select everything of one color and delete it or whatever you need to do to it.
