    Draft RR Help file

    I have been playing around with Road Runner for a while, and have had many experiences like those we all see every day on this forum. I think Guino has done an awesome job on developing this app / toolkit, and thought I would take some time out to contribute a little back.

    I have taken a lot of info that comes with the RR download, and added some FAQ's and examples, and compiled a Help file. Its still an early draft so don't expect a fujlly structured answers for everything in the universe sort of document, but it is an easier way to get to the information we have at our fingertips, but sometimes just can't see.

    Now I need some help from you guys.

    Having crashed the data together, I now need help to confirm I have put stuff in the right order, and confirm the contents are actually true !

    Guino can provide some help on this, but I suspect like me, you all think his talent is in extending the functionality. We just need to try and keep up with him !

    So I guess I am looking for feedback on the strucure and content. There are several sections that are empty, notably the ini file definitions. I didn't realise their were so many of them, and just don't know what they all do, or their content, syntax, structure etc If you can fill in the gaps please feel free. All contributions no matter how small will be welcome, and will help us all to improve on a brilliant environment, Isn't that what Open Source is supposed to be about ?

    This draft can be found here RRhelpv07-11-02.rar, and it is a compiled help file (.chm). If you unzip this file, then double click on the downloaded file, it will just fire up.

    It would be good to get this post into its own area, so I can work on the responses, Admins can this be done ?

    Though it goes against the grain guys, to say so, on this occasion, could you please

    cheers

    Road RUnner Help File

    Wow, that is looking really good! I can see you have put a LOT of work into it! This will be VERY handy as a reference for more seasoned users, as well as essential for New Road Runner users.

    Great Work!

    This is looking really good man.. I'll write a few notes of things I've noticed and send it your way soon. We should probabably get the new installshield information in place (the other one is 8 months old!).

    I'd suggest you get in touch with W3bMa5t3r, I'm sure he'd be glad to help out and include the help file in the installer as well.

    It doesn't seem to work for me. All I get is page not found in the help window.

    Thanks guys for your kind words,

    but this is only the starting point !

    65coupei6 it works fine for me, and it has been downloaded 79 times so far, so I don't know what the problem could be ?

    W3bMa5t3r, thanks for the PM.

    Everyone, This file has been created with the freeware version of HelpNdoc, the link for this is at the bottom of every page. If you have any changes, or information to include can you please forward it to me with a header on each page describing where to make the changes ie

    Installation -> Installshield

    You can send it as txt, rtf, word, or zipped.

    My job will generally be to cut and paste your feedback into the chm file. I also need some help on compiling a list of keywords for the file. Again format should be header of keyword, with 1 word / phrase per line

    Keywords
    Installation
    Variables
    /PosX
    etc

    Anyone want to be the first for changes to the file ?

    cheers
