Going to revise the TUTORIALS section... suggestions?

Post by Pete » Mon Feb 25, 2008 9:34 pm

The tutorials section on this site is a bit unwieldly, and I'm thinking about redesigning it so that it's more useful.

Do you guys have any suggestions for how I should arrange it?

Right now it's six sections with really big / long / intimidating lists of tutorials that are hard to navigate.

How would you arrange it if you were me?

Also -- I'm gonna put all the QB Express tutorials in that section as well.... something I've been meaning to do for quite some time.

I have one particular Interrupt routine that I can update. I don't care who gets credit for it, but the present code is just wrong in one area. It is a Screen 13 Fast Bitmap loader addition in the tutorial. If you need any help, email me Pete.

One MAJOR problem here is that the Hexadecimal ampersand is not allowed and becomes ampersand, ampersand, AMP in the end. I have had that problem answering questions also.

There are some other "trigger" code words in non code discussions.

Glad you care!

I think you should show what kind of file the tutorial is in, i.e. text, html, pdf, zip, etc., or make them all a single standardized format.

I like SMC's idea. :-).

As far as order of things? How about by subjects? I mean it's sort of already in that order. just break it into more sub-subjects.

Games:
-> Design
-> Graphics
-> Script Engine
Tools And Utilities
-> Sprite Editor
-> etc etc....


Just to break down the list. If you need to you could break that down into even more sub branches.

Like Design could have (Story, worlds, Characters) under them. Just a suggestion.

I like that idea! It's more organized and it makes faster to find what you want!
