1. This is a multiple query for help on isometric game engine

Hi gurus

I have made a cool isometric engine and it rocks (for a beginner) :)
Its 64x64 map with perfect rivers and butterflys etc etc.
Im not using DJGPP, im using borlandc3.0 though I know DJGPP pretty
well. I need to do this for a future job apparently.

This is what I would like to do and can anyone help me with any of

* I would like some really cool mod music of around 100-250k in size
* Shadows - Would I draw up another set of darker tiles and make a
random tile change blob float around the map changing the current
tiles to a darker colur and back again as it passes over?
* Place main character in - Do I lock him in the center of the screen?
I can't find much info on this at all. How many anims? How many sides?
* How do I make a bigger map without running out of memory?? far
* I have also got my sound engine but do not know when to trigger
sounds?? Do I put a couple of different sized invisible globes around
character and trigger a louder sound as we get closer??
* How do undertake trees? More than one tile, one tall tile??
* How do I implement rain with a splashing on the ground effect?? In 2
parts? 1 close up near screen of big random rain sprites and 2 tiny
rain for each tile random with splash????

Thanks greatly to anyone who can help.
