First a note: FinalSun is definitly not finished yet! So, there may be (crashing?) bugs. If you find some,
please report them by mail or by posting them at the forum on finalsun.wagnerma.de
If you create or edit a map, save very often and early, as this is still a beta version.

You are not allowed to use this editor with a demo or illegal version of Tiberian Sun, buy the game and enjoy it :).
The program is freeware, so you get it "as it is", the author is not responsible for any damage caused by the program.
Electronic Arts and Westwood don´t provide ANY support for this editor.
The editor is NOT a official editor of Westwood or Electronic Arts.
You may not sell maps created with this editor without written permission of the author of this editor.
- Win9x or Win2k
- DirectX 6
- Tiberian Sun installed
- RAM: 32MB physical should be the lower limit, and the harddisk your page/swap file is on should have
more than 150 MB free.
I recommend using DirectX 8.0. It speeds up FinalSun and TS.
- If FinalSun crashes while loading pictures, switch into another color mode by right clicking on your desktop and selecting properties. Select the correct tab and switch to another color mode. Then try again.
If it doesn´t work, try a lower resolution. And if even this doesn´t help, check the end of this file that has additional notes
- Although FinalSun should now save every map on every PC fine, please save your work as often and early as possible.
HOW TO START
After FinalSun has finished loading, press F1 to show the manual and
If after the release of this version any bugs get known, they will be listed at finalsun.wagnerma.de, probably
with a workaround idea if existing. So you should visit FinalSun.wagnerma.de if there are problems before
PLEASE!!! Read the manual by pressing F1 in FinalSun.
