Has anyone tried setting up Impact for dealing with isometric tiles instead of square ones? If so, how did you do it exactly? Thanks in advance!

I've started a plugin a while back, but it needs more work. Maybe it'll give you some ideas on where to start?

Would it be possible for you to explain how to enable the plugin?

Sorry for the month old bump, but I thought this might be of interest to anyone still attempting isometricity - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1449304753/ref=s9_simh_gw_p14_d9_i7?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=center-4&pf_rd_r=1K67XGW95V504E7CVS3E&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=467128133&pf_rd_i=468294

I second a bit of handholding or example(s) on how to use Ape's plugin!

could you just build the game art so it looks isometric, and then apply a context transform to rotate the context 45 degrees and to shift it so it lines up within the canvas? I haven't played with it too much, but I've thought about it and this would be the approach I take.
