Dungeon Tiles Mapper

One of my favorite tools as a DM is the Dungeon Tiles Mapper (DTM). This handy app was previously featured on the WotC website, but the creator retained ownership of the product. Since that time, it was revised into a 2.0.0 version and has now found a new home and is the focus of a Yahoo Group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/dungeon_tiles/). In addition to hosting the latest version, the group also houses additional tile sets for the app, and a lively discussion board.

While I've been working with the tool for some time (my maps for the mines at Brightstone Keep were created using the DTM), there has been a consistent issue with the product (known as "sticky tiles"). I've recently focus my professional talents as a web developer to solve this issue and posted an update to fix this issue.

If you use DTM, please consider joining the Yahoo Group, as well as adding this update to your version of DTM. If you are new to the DTM, now is a good time to check it out.
