Art Pack Install Problems:
Enough users seem to have encountered problems with installing Art Packs that it seems that this should be covered in the FAQ. If you're having such problems, please see the following thread:

Importing User Art:
Q: Can I drop the PNG files I download from here or create on my own into just any random folder in the Dundjinni file structure?

A: Nope, they need to go into a User art directory.
The default User art directory for the Fantasy genre is "C:\Program Files\Fluid\Dundjinni\Map\Fantasy\User".

Also, when downloading art from these forums, it's a good idea to edit the filenames to remove the prefix code that the forums assign to each uploaded file (the forums software does this in order to maintain unique filenames when users upload two different files with the same name). So, if you download something called FG5_CaveTroll.png, you should rename the file to CaveTroll.png.

If a series of files has alphabetical suffixes attached, such as PineTree-a.png, PineTree-b.png, etc., make sure to retain the suffixes in the filenames if you intend to use those images as a Cover set. See the in-program helpfile (hit F1, or check the Help menu) for more information regarding how Cover art works.

(Cross-posted from the Maps FAQ):
How do I prepare my maps for printing at Kinkos?

This has been asked enough that I felt I'd better put up a FAQ entry for it. First, feel free to use the forums' Search feature, looking for the word "Kinkos" in the body section of messages from all forums. You're bound to find plenty of discussion and tips.

A recent post covers the topic really well. Check it out here:

Here are some other threads that discuss it:
