For some reason leftrightupdown doesn't work in the demo game, though the sprites are there for all 8 directions =) I suppose it was deactivated, but theoretically it must be part of the engine to be able to walk UDRL.

Say, these sprites you gave to us are from the fight engine no? I thought we were to do something world-map like first =)
Also: Do you think it might make sense to take your fight engine, port it and then use/manipulate it to render the map world?
PS: It would be cool if you gave us a map file (the background texture) to try to do something with next. If you don't want to, tell us which file format it is and wich size and maybe give us then the map file (the one which contains the info about where is a castle and where is an armory etc). Just an idea though.
PPS: Have you had the chance to take a look at the license?
