First, you need to have the DM "Full" version. I'll assume you do.

Getting maps/images into FG is about the easiest thing to do. Just put it into the 'images' directory in the campaign you create and it will show up under the Images page. Done!

You can even do this while FG is running, unlike for adding tokens which requires a FG restart.

Really? I hadnt tried it yet, but I could have sworn I saw a post that said a restart was also required to show new images.

That's really handy if that's true.

A restart is only required in order to load new Tokens, not new Images. Hope that helps clear up the differences in what you heard.

Absolutely true ... drawing maps on the fly with cc2 or Dundjinni and dropping them into the game whist in play is one of the best features that FG has ... I think ... of course, 1.06 will offer all sorts of "bells and "whistles".

Is there a release conspiracy ?
FG1.06 - delayed, CC3 - delayed, Battlegrounds- delayed ... my pizza - delayed !
