Ok I have Decided to make a tutorial on the dothalo basics It will include everything:::
Programs needed:

First thing your going to have to do if you want to edit a map in dothalo is open it in dothalo. To do that click the bottom at the top left that says open map

Ill use Turf as an example:

First we will do some upgrades for the master chief:
Click the Plus(+) sign on +[Bipd]Biped
which will then bring up these options





Click on objects\charcters\masterchief\masterchief_mp
When you click on it, it will bring up the "Tag Editor" where you can edit all the options of the master chief, this is what you have done so far::

Some things you would want the Master Chief to be able to do is
*Jump Really high*
*Pick things up from far away*
Well this is how you do that:
The jump hight right now is "3.08", Change that to 30
the item pick up distance is"0.44", Also change that to 30

This is what you had---

Now that your master chief can jump high and pick items up from far away we should make him run super fast right??

then click the globals\globals tag so that the Tag Editor comes up--

In the Tag Editor what you are going to want to edit is only:

Walking Speed Rev--15
Walking Speed Sdw--15
Walking Speed Accel-20
Croutching Speed FwD--5
Croutching Speed Rev--5

Now that our Battle Rifle has 2 zooms and is duel wieldable lets give it some 360 auto aim!!

Directly below the zoom changes you should see:
Aquire Target distance-17
Deviation Angle-0.05235988
Auto-Aim Range1-17
Deviation Angle2-0.1047198
Auto-Aim Range2-21
**What you want to do is 360 auto aim and a high aim range right?**
so make the Angles 360 and the range 1000
So... it should look like this:
Aquire Target distance-1000
Deviation Angle-360
Auto-Aim Range1-1000
Deviation Angle2-360
Auto-Aim Range2-1000

Heres what you had---

Heres what you had---
