There's a new online manual?
« on: 20 Jul 2014, 16:13 »
I was surprised to know that there's a newer online manual: http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/manual/ linked from AGS homepage.
When it was created? I might have missed that.

I always find it easier to use the one in Wiki (accessible to forums): http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/wiki/Contents_(manual)
But it's outdated (version 3.1).

Is there a plan to make Wiki refer to the "real" manual?
Also, how it is created and who is responsible for updating it? Perhaps there's a sense to update it to 3.3.0.

Also, how it is created [...]

It was converted from CHM to HTML with chm2web Pro 2.85 (unicode)

E: Also, the online manual has been there since I joined (10 Mar 2013), IIRC. I'm surprised to know you missed it!

Uhm. Really? I join in March this year and I hadn't seen it!
I've been using the Wiki, but hate it, since the search function seems to suck (searchs everything, and not just the manual, and also gives often error, specially if I type 2 words.)

Looking forward to test/use the HTML version! :)
There are those who believe that life here began out there...

Wiki is a bad, bad place to search for functions, Cassiebsg (and I'm sure you know why :wink: ).

I don't use online version myself but I do believe that presentation and graphical-wise: HTML version looks quite nice. :smiley:
