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.
