    1 stop Ride Runner Documentation,,,, Your thoughts

    I have started to take this upon myself to do, as it has been mentioned a
    number of times, and as the forum is getting bigger and bigger on repeated Q???,

    i'm still in planning stage as i have only just decided to do this, i want to make a full help setting up RR (in newbie terms(hate that word really))
    in all aspects, basically if its in RRconfig it will be in the doc's.
    also anything that helps you run RR eg addon's etc.
    i will also add a section on basic skinning and modding,as i have now done a few skins now,not saying i'm any good at them, but its a great learning curve.

    what i feel should be in the documentation (please feel free to mention anything else)

    RR set up
    Skin cmds old and new
    History
    Horm
    Faqs from forum.
    Basic in skinning and modding.
    Trouble shooter (Q? & Ans)
    Links page , to all the addons and main software to run RR

    these are just a few ideas and really are just whats around already but haveing them in 1 file , will stop (hopefully) all the repeated Q's??

    i have already opened the software and have started the menu setup and some text and images, but i would like inout from you the user, New and old.
    to help me make this really a 1 stop help file on RR.

    so what do you think

    also this all depends on you and the agreement of the team

    Its one of the last few major things that RR sorta lacks. Mitch has tried to do a lot on the doc side, like adding all the extra separate text files in the doc folder in hopes that it makes it easier to find whats new, how to use it along with the old stuff.

    This does sound like it would help to further RR's usage to anyone new to it and maybe even the old ones around as with so much stuff, its easy to forget things sometimes..

    I have been considering this as well for a few months, and am willing to help in any way that I can. I think if we can help bridge the gap for the new users a little in a centralized fashion, we might be able to cut down on repeat forum posts, and what I call the dreadful scatter gun search results. I am all for working on this!

    he did yes but incomplete (no disrespect) and this 1 will go a bit further, and bring it more inline to today's RR,

    i have also just pm'ed him , as i don't want to tread on toes so to speak, he did a great job, i just want to continue it and make it more effective, in other ways

    That was my point, better to continue the work already started, rather than re-invent the wheel


    Don't forget there is the Wiki, right here on the forum.

    Anyone can update that.

    well i have manged to port his help file into a new build, so i don't need him for any files.
    but an agreement to continue would be good thou, i know he is still about now and then.
    i suppose if i don't hear anything from him i will continue it, but MUST inc him as the creator of this file .

    i can fill in the blanks , and i have suggestion from a hand full of user what else they would like to be in there.

    Sounds great! Have a look at the help documentation that comes with DigitalFX. I cover a LOT of stuff in there, that is related to RR and not only the skin.

    Also look at the FAQ in the DFX thread (2nd post) as a lot is covered there as well.


    I have the program here to create the help files if you need any help as well.
