Yes, your instructions work and I now have a standalone mode AP working on the Pi Zero W music player.
However, a question, I understood that on the Pi3 and Pi Zero W, the WiFi chip could act as an AP and connect to a WiFi router at the same time.
Is this the case and if so is it possible using the Max2Play plugin? (reason – one could then (when at a know Wifi Connection point) get internet radio. (obviously one would have to deselect the „standalone mode“).

OK I will try your instructions and report back.
As for uses for a Zero Wireless AP setup, I have 2
The first can be seen from my write-up of a project here https://community.wd.com/t/will-wd-be-releasing-a-1tb-wd-node-zero-w/203662/3
(If you want I can supply a copy of my project write-up for your site too)
The second was for some friends I have who live in rural Ireland without access to the internet. They wanted to be able to have a
Wireless router/ DHCP server, Access Point in their house so that they could connect up their modern electricals to see each other. I provided them with a Pi Zero and a Micro USB Wifi adaptor, installed Kodi/Libreelec and turned on the AP facility in that to provide an Access Point. This is working fine for them. A Pi Zero W would do this without having to have the USB WiFi adaptor. I prefer your web based Pi configuration capabilities and would like to do this using Max2Play.
Hope this helps
