Adrift Wiki Organisation

The main page is organised into the following sections:

  1. User Guide
    • This section is for general information about installation, setup.
  2. Introductory Tutorials
    • Introductory tutorials are for beginners and should not require the use of keys, expressions, or any advanced features.
  3. Intermediate Tutorials
    • Short tutorials should be added to the "How do I...?" tutorial.
    • Large complex tutorials with screen captures should be written to a new page and a page link added to this section.
    • This section is for tutorials that introduce more advanced features of adrift.
  4. Advanced tutorials
    • These tutorials are intended for people who are already Adrift experts, and use advanced techniques beyond those that a typical Adrift user will ever require.
  5. Adrift Reference
    • These articles should be comprehensive descriptions of each part of Adrift, written in encyclopedic style.
    1. The Main Items
      • This is reserved for the 10 Adrift "Items". You should not change this list.
    2. User Interface
      • Articles about each part of the user interface.
    3. Dialogs
      • Articles about specific dialog boxes.
    4. The Runner
      • Using the Runner to play or debug games.
    5. Importing and Exporting
      • Modules and other file types that can be imported into or exported from an Adrift TAF file.
    6. Functions and Expressions
      • How functions can be used in expressions to perform complex calculations and text manipulations.
