Compiled Tutorial PDF
« on: February 22, 2017, 11:42:56 AM »
I needed a manual for this game, and couldn't find one.   The tutorials are pretty good, so I've compiled them into a PDF manual using Homebrewery:     

Manual V4: hxxp: homebrewery. naturalcrit. com/share/BkX3e0ltKl

Manual V4 (Printer Friendly): hxxp: homebrewery. naturalcrit. com/share/HyJs2Attg

The source code is viewable from those links, so feel free to make it nicer and post it.       

Hope this saves the next manual seeker the few hours I spent on it.       

Edit: Cleaned up some garbled text in the PDF version.   

If you feel like you could contribute something important which is left out, or if you feel you could write a section with better clarity, feel free to post in here about it, and I can add it in and update the links.

Right around page 15 or so, you've got some seriously squished text.

Thanks! The code to add page numbers seems to have squashed it in a few places.     Reloading the links will fix it now, and I'll be uploading a new version of the manual momentarily.   

Edit: Hmm.   .   .    The generated PDF has an error not present in the online version.   .   .    I'll tinker with it and update the main post when I sort it out.    In the mean-time, please note any other messed up text, as it helps to track down the issue.

Edit2: Sorted for V4

For some reason when viewing to print it throws in a blank page every other page.  Not sure if its something on my end or within the file.

I just looked at them, and they seemed to be okay.

I am not sure what it is then.  Most likely its on my end somewhere.  All i know is it comes up as 84 pages with the actual being only 42 pages.  I just set it to print the odd pages.  It's weird, shows up fine when just view, the extra pages only appear when going to print.

I didn't try to print it, so maybe it is the PDF?

Paper sizes, the pdf is configured for us paper and you are using normal metric paper sizes is my bet
