Libraries and modules

From ADRIFT 5 Manual Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

ADRIFT allows anyone to export an AMF module from the developer, which can then be uploaded to the "Modules" section of the ADRIFT game downloads site where you can download it and import it into your own games.

Modules can also be added to your list of libraries, which will cause them to be automatically imported into each new game you start, and updated when you download a new version of a module.

IconWarning.png ADRIFT currently has only basic export functionality implimented, so the exported file will require manual editing, by a person experienced with the XML format, before it can be used as a library.
