The best way to learn Hera

I'm a newbie to Hera, and I find learning it quite a challenge. Has anyone written a walkthrough, like a step-by-step guide to creating your own level?


Well, if you open all of the folders in the Hera folder, you'll find a tutorial thing, but I never figured out how to use that, so I just fiddled around with stuff and saw how things are done in Ares, and I now know Hera pretty well.

"I am the supreme dictator of the universe, it's just that nobody knows about it yet."
"Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow."

Trial and error seems to be the best route. The thing might be a tad messy, but you'll figure out what all the tags mean after a while.

Do what I (Hera master) did: experiment

Time is the best teacher, yet it kills all of it's students.

Read through the manual five times or so. After that, you either go insane or understand Hera. I'm not sure what the odds are, though. I might have just been lucky.

I'd say a combination of Slug's and Pallas's approches was the one that helped me. I read the manual a few times, and did the tutorials (although I never checked if I did them right), then did experamentation on my own.
