It is hard to show you in the forums directly because Kongregate remove tags. I’ll try using pastebin. When you save your map, it looks like this:

http://pastebin.com/zVZBipLA

And you need to modify it so it looks like this:

After you’ve got your modified map, you go to the edit menu and click paste map and paste in your new map. Now the briefing is retained.

Scripting is a little bit more complicated. It is all based around NFAs (non-deterministic finite automata) which just means that you can have ‘states’ and ‘edges’ between them. Edges are tied to stuff happening in the game. And you can add actions to states which are run at the start. So the zombie hordes are actually controlled by scripting.

If you want to do your own campaign with custom briefings and wins, you can do that right now. The way you do it is to create your level, save it, copy the level out into notepad and then edit the file by hand to add scripting/briefings. To give people examples of how to do this, I’ve uploaded the 4 tutorial maps. You can download them and then save them to see what they look like.

Be careful. When you add scripts, it overrides the default script so the win condition is now entirely in your hands. If you have other questions or have troubles, ask and I’ll try to help out.

FYI, the latest version of the game allows you to look through the online map database and play maps there. Be sure to rate any map you play and mark down maps which are unplayable.
