A Good Place To Start

Postby Arntzen » Fri Apr 13, 2012 9:16 pm

Whether you're searching this forums for tricks and tips, for beginner to expert guides you can still get lost in all the treads in this huge EE forum. I've chosen to make a huge guide where I place categories for everything and make it easier for the player to know what he/she should read first and also make it understandable so he/she dont get lost reading a guide ment for something entierly different. This guide will also get updated and I hope I get feedback and recomendations to make this guide better.

How to use this guide: Firstly I would suggest EVERYONE to read everything in the "Basic knowledge" category. Then go to what setting you want to learn more from.

1. Basic knowledge
2. P2N/P2S
3. P2? Islands
4. Middle Ages
5. Industrial Ages
6. Modern
7. Liga
8. What's missing?

- General Upgrade Guideline
Need alot more upgrade guidelines to complete the guide.



I want this guide to be as correct as possible so feel free to correct me where I say something wrong (EE related or just spelling wise). Comment on how this guide could improve. Comment or PM me if there is something on this forum that should be in this guide. And feel free to ask questions in the comment section. I would say "no dumb question" but simple_faith is most likely gonna proove me wrong! ^^

You should be able to find information on this in the moderators forum... There's info on FRAPS, VirtualDub, and compressing FRAPS video using VirtualDub using the DIVX codec...

Makes very nice videos at a reasonable size. See training tab of lobby for examples.

Great effort, thanks.
