I made some suggestions to Cam, he liked them, but he couldn't be bothered to implement them, so he is making me do it instead.

Some of the tutorial threads in this forum are being clogged up with comments. IMO this distracts for the tutorial and can scare away those that we are trying to help. I'll be the first to admit that I am one of the main perpertrators, but I'm trying to make amends. :D

This is one of those 'please start a new thread for questions and comments' messages. This isn't going to be a hard and fast rule, but if tutorial looks as if it is being overwhelmed by comments I'll split the topic into the main tutorial thread (marked with an !) and a 'Disussion' thread.

So, if things look a little different it is because I have been meddling.

Oh, if a lot of the posts are Cam and I patting each other on the back I'll probably delete them (or I will :D - Grim).

Not sure if RPG Dungeon has tutorials anymore either (or they're buried somewhere if so). CoM could be added though.

Hm? RPG Dungeon's tutorials are here, in the "tutorials and lessons" section. I link there quite often to the romance authoring tutorial.

Thank you very much for updating the list, cmorgan (and whoever helped in doing so)! :)

Hmm, well that looks like only a subset of what they once had. Specifically, I was looking for Rastor's item creation tutorial I linked in this thread, but it seems to be gone now.

I'll get them back up and post a link here.

For some strange reason, the link went to the IESDP Archive Forum.
