I really wasn't going to do this and told vectra666 I would not cross post and gave reasons, then shaun2097 gave a great response so I figured, what the hell, let's cross post this...
...so I am pleased to finally upload a guide to DIF that I've been working on for a little while to try to bring layout designing to those that have never done this before.
For anyone that is slightly interested, please take a look at the download section for the PDF. I will update this as time goes by. Have fun and go and build those layouts...
To access the file you need to be REGISTERED and have confirmed the email as per standard forums these days.
Please do not host the file elsewhere. It is not much to ask people to download the latest one and more importantly, they can subscribe to the download to get notifications of when it's updated. I do not give permission for this to be hosted or shared in any form apart from direct download.
The PDF is 30+ pages long of pure MFME information along with a section that teaches you how to build a basic classic layout from scratch.
