for realease 0.9.11
Latest version (almost finished!) can be downloaded here.
Note: The table is too big to be integrated in the manual so you'll have to download it separately. A PDF document is also unavailable for the same reason. I'll try to make this in HTML format so that it can be viewed inside a browser but I might also leave it the way it is - available in two formats:
- ODS : OpenDocument Spreadsheet (can be opened with OpenOffice)
- XLS : Microsoft Excel 97-2003 Worksheet (can be opened with all versions of Office including Office 2007)
If mediafire says that this file's missing, then I'm uploading a new version at this moment. Be patient and try again after 3-4 minutes.
CHANGE LOG (shows my work so far):
-All chapters are done except Chapter 10 (will take lots of time) and the advanced tactics section in Chapter 5.
-Index, Credits and Appendixes are also done.
-Still working on layout (with border looks very nice ^^).
-Added a few more links + (possible) min. system requirements.
-My attempts to convert the weapons/utilities-table in HTML-format (don't want to write it all by myself ) are still fruitless.
1)See unC0Rr's post.
2)Page 3 now is as follows:
Thanks to all who dedicated their time to making this game, all the useful information on the official web site of Hedgewars and its great community. Parts of this manual are taken from Hedgewars' Wiki and/or from the forum. I'll try to mention the author(s) but sometimes I wouldn't be able to due to the fact that I don't know who wrote them.
Since most of the things are finished (grammar correction's still needed too), translation can start. Whoever wants to do it, feel free to do it.
Well, most of you maybe know that there is a wiki on the HW-site. Well, since things are going pretty slowly there and I've read tons of threads where someone ask how something's done, I decided to make an unoffical manual in PDF format in order each of you to be able to read it offline. It's still very rough, there are mistakes (English grammar and such plus some inaccuracies or delusion - sorry in advance) and it's definitely far from finished. But I've decided to post my draft here in order to get your opinion, suggestions and corrections. Hope you like what I've done so far. ^^ I've taken some things directly from the wiki (well, I've wrote a couple of the articles myself ). Hope the HW-team doesn't mind that. I can rewrite these if there's a problem with that. Actually I will take text from other pages of the main site including the forum, since there are a lot of questions and answers.
I've tried to make a most detailed description and all I could think of when I was writing it. The manual will not only include how to play the game and what-does-this-button-do, but also a full guide (as far as I have the knowledge of course ) for creating art for the game (hats, maps, themes, sounds etc.). Later (when most things are done) a tutorial on how to modify and create new weapons would also be nice.
At the end you can find a small ToDo-list and notes (not too many for now). I'd also like to ask unC0Rr how it all started and detailed information on the development through the years. Maybe I'll include a short interview or something.
Anyone who wants to perticipate is more than welcomed. You can write me a PM or just post here.
Now about the grammar part - only from educated (preferably with English as mother language) people.
I'll also be glad to have the paths for demos etc. for all operating system where HW's currently running on.
HTML = How To Meet the Ladies
Here is my Unofficial Manual for HW. Hope you like it. Still working on it. Don't worry. Will get it finished...Sometime in the future.
