There is a new version of the forums ready for testing. Please post here if you're willing to help test! We could also use the help of coders!

    RULES

    DO'S
    • Post on the appropriate topic for the appropriate module, plugin or tool. However don't necropost for no good reason.
    • Make sure the question is not answered anywhere on the topic. Most modules/plugins also contain demo games or some sort of documentation.


    DONT'S
    • Don't create different topics regarding the same module, plugin or tool, regardless of reason. Take advantage of the search function and post appropriately.
    • Don't ask for a missing download link of a fairly old resource. Instead either go to List of Modules (download links are also provided). If it's not to be found there, PM me.

    CREATING A NEW TOPIC

    • If you have your own module, plugin or tool that you want to place here to share with the community, feel free to do so. It is suggested that you format the topic title in the following way: <MODULE/PLUGIN/TOOL:> <name> <version> - <Optional short description>
    Example:  MODULE: Tween v1.5 RC 1 - A programming module

    • Always remember that this board is about modules, plugins and tools; don't ask for help about a technical problem concerning AGS. This is what the Beginners and Technical Support boards are about.
    • Don't request the creation of a module, plugin or tool here. Use the search function or browse the list of script modules, what you're looking for may already exist.

    PUBLISHING
    - Download should include at least the .scm module file & documentation if it's a module, and the .dll plugin file & documentation if it's a plugin.
    - A demo game is optional, though strongly encouraged.
    - Zip/Rar format is preferred
    - State which version of AGS it was written for
    - Finally, add your module to the list of script modules in the AGS Wiki. If it's a plugin, add it to list of plugins.


    DOCUMENTATION
    - Plain text (*.txt) or html file for maximum compatibility
    - Same name as module/plugin
    - Should contain the following:
      - Module/Plugin name
      - Module/Plugin version
      - Authors
      - Description of what module/plugin does and what it can be used for
      - Dependencies on other modules / plugins / AGS versions
      - List of all public functions and variables and how/where they are used
      - Revision history / Changelog with date
      - License: Free for non-commercial AND commercial use? Credit required or optional?
