HOWTO add monthly special generals

Postby magowiz » 14 Mar 2012, 15:42

I just started writing a guide that explains how to update CAAP to be able to buy monthly special generals,
you can find it on our wiki : http://caaplayer.wikia.com/index.php?title=HOWTO_add_a_monthly_special_general .
The guide isn't finished yet, lacks the general equipment and indications about where to put these lines (which file, in which part) and lacks a little bit of code syntax (parentheses).
Anyway I would like to know :
  • What do you think about writing this kind of guide?
  • If this kind of guides could reach their aim : make simple things like updating caap "database" accessible also to non-programmers
  • What do you think in particular of this guide ? (any critique is welcome )

Hello magowiz.
I think it is a great idea you have there. I would love to learn more and maybe be able to help in the dev of this extension.
I encourage your idea. Please include details like which program to use for editing or resource that might be helpful.
Thanks.

I simply use a text editor (like notepad), but you could use context for windows which is a good editor with syntax highlighting.
About what I've wrote : I discovered these things doing a sort of reverse engeenering reading the code and trying to understand which is the logic behind this.
There are a lot of code that I still don't understand.
I think I have to add also equipment editing guide.
