Not noted it, can you link me an example?

Mixture of code and pre seems to still work on here:

https://springrts.com/wiki/User:Flozi/E ... ources.lua

However, note that the wiki now supports https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extensio ... xHighlight

as used https://springrts.com/wiki/User:Flozi/E ... eatureDefs (line nums optional)

IMO nearly everything currently using <code> needs to be <syntaxhighlight lang="lua">


edit: Herp, see it now, the extra 'box' above and below?

yep, i.e. https://springrts.com/wiki/Admin:Rapid

the contrast is very low, so difficult to see...

Yes, that thing. It's more obvious/annoying on some pages.

Does anyone know why in the hell https://springrts.com/wiki/Template:LuaInterfaces is a template and not just written into https://springrts.com/wiki/Lua_Scripting itself?

RFC: https://springrts.com/wiki/Lua:Environments moved table from Category apge, imo category pages should be empty other than the automatically generated lists of pages.

https://springrts.com/wiki/Ubuntu_install needs updating (I guess) and some trimming of old sections.

I'm trying to play spring 1944 on windows. I have Spring engine and lobby installed. I have the 1944 zip file.

What do I do now? In the read me first it says I can select an online battle hosting the game but I don't see any and I have my game paths set.

Then the readme says "You can also download games and maps manually, see the FAQ."
Why not just put that info here, I cannot find in the FAQs where to install games manually. I'm guessing I missed it in one of the other FAQs. Make installing games manually it's own FAQ

I have to say that this install process has been pretty terrible and if there are not many people playing spring it's could be because of this steep install process.

Does anyone know what should be written here? https://springrts.com/wiki/Gamedev:WeaponDefs#Cannon
The entire section is a bit garbled, e.g.
weaponVelocity = √(range * g)

Is it OK if I go and just manually remove all the instances of the extra <pre> tags (boxes) that are still found in some places?
Let me know if you (abma, FLOZi, some other wiki guru?) think it should be done differently, else I'll go ahead.

weaponVelocity = √(range * g)
R = (v^2 Sin 2X) / g

=>

v = SQRT (Rg / Sin 2X)

Let X = 45deg => Sin 2X = Sin 90 = 1

.'. v = SQRT(Rg)

Was on my todo list, I don't see any reason not to do it this way. I've done them as I've found them when editing pages.

A concern regarding wiki and engine downloads:
1) I often try to find the link to engine builds by searching on google, and if I type: "springrts builds", the top result is https://springrts.com/wiki/Download_Tes ... tic_builds , which is some outdated page. It still has some useful info so I'm wondering what we should do with this.
2) What I really wanted to find is https://springrts.com/wiki/Download, but for some reason it's not visible in the Main Page. I now see it exists in the small "navigation" sidebar, but this isn't one of the obvious places I'd look.
3) The one link (https://springrts.com/wiki/Getting_Spri ... _and_Links) that seems like it could get me a result, doesn't have anything related to the engine.

So I'm looking for ideas, my current proposals:
1) Don't really have a good idea, but extract useful info from this page, put it into relevant pages if it doesn't already exist, and remove it. Would like to see hokomoko's and abma's opinion on it as they contributed to it.
2) Link to https://springrts.com/wiki/Download with title "Engine" in the "Content" part of the Main Page (above Games and Maps).
3) Include the same link in the "Getting Spring Content and Links"

On this topic, imo the "Download" link in the top bar should use https://springrts.com/wiki/GamesDownloads as the default DL page.

Hmm, I think I like that part the way it currently is. This is SpringRTS Engine site, and it makes sense that we'd point to the engine download directly. Game downloads are linked from that page (on the top), although maybe that could be improved? Right now it looks like some sort of notification.
