Quick Links to Forum Tutorials!



I had some free time today and I decided that there were many great threads around here that shouldn't go to waste. Thus I visted the last 46 pages of the C&C forum and found all the threads that were worth something, in my opinion of course. Then I printed all pages to pdf files and I made zip files, to threads more than 1 page long.

I ended up with lots of interesting stuff. I can only assume that the creators of the threads and the people who contributed won't mind, since they did post in a public forum after all. If there is a problem, let me know and I'll delete the links...

Here goes then: (All the pdf and zip together in a nice big zipped folder),C+C.pdf

The names are indicative of what's going on more or less. Sprites ( the creator of the thread ) the name of the thread.

Anyone who wishes to find the threads above can visit these:

I hope everything is ok.

I thought to bring notice and not post in the tutorials thread. I will probably get progZmax to my back, but anyhow...

I will try my best to keep the links open for as long as possible (unless I stop my site or something which won't happen anytime soon).

Hope it will prove useful.

(After seeing these threads, ildu, progZmax, loominous, Darth Manarb, Helm and many others have risen to my mind quite a lot! :D)

EDIT: Links fixed, no spaces left! The link to Darth Manarb leads to the correct thread. Whoever has more threads to look (remember I went only up to page 46 or something), is most welcome to do so, and I'll add them to the first page. (or PM me with links and I'll make them into pdf and upload them).

Just keep in mind that the older you go, the more images don't work, due to upload restrictions and stuff...

Links inside the pdfs (in music threads for example), do work, if the file is still there...

Other than that ok :)

Pruned excess posts and stickied/locked this.

Great work!
