Hey guys, I was wondering if you could set up a wiki that we could post different tutorials in, post what the different parts of the engine do, and really help each other out. If someone has some web space they could provide, or know of some good free stuff for wikis, that would be awesome. If we have noone88 doing the main programming for the engine and other develops involved in creating front ends for it (like vehicle classes, other objects, etc) this project can evolve fast. Organization will be key, but Wikis can help with that :) Just an idea...


Check out what Garry Newman has done with his mod for the Source engine dubbed "Garry's Mod" and the community he's built with it.

Do you want to create a forum/wiki?

Ha ha, I would love too, but I don't have the resources right now. I can start checking into it though.

I believe I have found a cool site that could create a nice wiki and hopefully cut down on some of these redundant discussion posts. I would make a nice place to just create and share I think. Anyway noone88 if you wanted to take a look here: http://www.wikidot.com/ and see what you think. I can deal with setting it up and that stuff, just would like your go ahead since its your project.

Cheers on the progress, its starting to look really really good!

i created a new wiki: http://jiglibx.wikidot.com/start
it would be nice if you could do some work on it. (Add some links, a small welcome page....) If you need any permissions for read/write mail me.

thank you!

Seems I dont have permissions yet to change styles, I am a member now though. I'm not sure how deep I have to be in order to change the style, if I have to be an admin that's cool if you dont want me to have that much power. I would like to design a style, but have no clue where to start or what an example looks like.

Edit: It keeps double posting, I don't know whats up with that. Anyways, I like the logos, they look great. Any chance I can have the source or a clear backed PNG of it?

sorry, i dont have the source of the png. I will ask the designer to give it to me. The double postings are no problem.... i feel like a 'real' admin while deleting them :D

Sounds good.

I was editing the top menu of the wiki and was like wow, how does this top menu keep getting this forum thing on it!?!?!
and i kept deleting it.

...sorry, lol

ahhh just assumed, login would be required to post. Never actually tried.

Alright I enabled joining, just in case you wanted to feel extra special and part of the team (stongly encouraged). If you dont want to wait for me or noone88 to approve you use the password join with the password as "iwanttohelp"

Thanks for helping!
