    I think you should change some of the formatting settings, because currently you ask that input values are underlined, but in that case, underscores cannot be seen so they can't be distinguished from spaces.

    I don't think anyone has been paying attention to those "rules" anyway. Too difficult to remember.

    If we can settle on a good set of formatting standards, I'll hack the toolbar to include shortcuts for them.

    Hy guys, this is a great resource, but how do I find the articles?

    For example, I can't find any way to get from the dromed index to the camvator tutorial.
    The Honest Thief - FMs, screenshots, DromED, links

    Zaccheus' hospital blog

    You mean: Using DromEd -> General Tutorials -> Creating a CamVator Sequence ?

    My bad.


    I did pop into 'using dromed', expecting basic things like 'how to move brushes', and indeed seeing basic headings like 'Configuration & Commands' and 'Building Missions' I did not look further down the list.

    Sorry.

    I've just put up a tutorial about how to modify missflag.str, including setting up campaigns of multiple missions, and carrying over an automap from one mission to the next. Clicky...

    I've just noticed the blog indexes don't show previous posts

    Maybe those beyond a certain age are hidden. I don't make an entry very often so it's easy to forget page links. I worked out one of them via a forum search, which I've now added manually, but I can't remember the other one I made.

    I found the Dromesday Book a little confusing to use so I made an example of a better structure in the link "Using Dromed-test" on the main index-page. As it is only a test all the tutorials/documents are still in the "dromed"-folder. I´ve also added two modified tutorials from the Dromed Central.

    Update:

    Added -

    Explanation of the Three Save files
    Grid Sizes
    Non-hostile AI
    Turning Guards
    Sitting AI
    Drunk Guard
    Alarm system
    A working Transformer
    EmitterTraps
    Keys & locked doors
    Some of the console commands
    Dromed 1 Texture families
    Dromed 2 Texture families
    Sources & Receptrons - the basics
    Ambient list for Thief 1
    Garrett´s comments for Thief 1
    Added "frob" to the glossary.

    I did not fully wrap my head around when to use monospaced, underlined, italicized, etc text, but I did my best :P

    I would like to know how to link to the glossary correctly. I tried with a couple of links but they didn´t work.

    Rejected. The whole sort-articles-in-namespaces thing was tried when I first started the wiki and it didn't work then. All tutorial pages should be named dromed:title_of_page. The missing link to dromed:index has been added to the front page. And because of that mistake, too many pages got linked from dromed:using. It should be that all tutorials are linked from dromed:index, and the :using, :fanmissions, and :customizing pages are topic-specific indexes. Other such indexes can be created as needed.

    I would like to know how to link to the glossary correctly.
    Code:
    [[glossary:df#frob]]
    Also, I'm thinking of disabling the \\ line-break markup. Either that or blacklist the next person who uses it.
