Help Offered

Post by justj99 » Sat May 30, 2020 11:43 pm

Depending on the amount of work, I'd be willing to update the Monster, Item, and Quest pdf files that are linked to by the manual. Some seem pretty out of date. I know there are some links on the forum with some more up to date information, but I think it would be great if the files themselves were updated. I've seen some posts saying that it might be possible to get the information from the downloaded map editor, but I thought that stuff was all on the server now. Anyway, if someone can give me a little help figuring out where to find the info, images, etc., I'm willing to make an attempt. Maybe it's even possible for me to write a small program to make updating it easier in the future. Let me know if I can help. Thanks.

I see now where I can find the .list files in the downloaded FT8 folder. I'm looking for the image files now, but so far I don't see them.

I have some other questions now too. I guess if there is interest in me doing something like this, please let me know. Thanks.

also in another post I'm looking for an updated monster list to create an updated.pdf file.

But at the moment there seems to be no way to have a complete list to copy / edit

It doesn't seem straightforward to do, at the very least. I guess we're finding out why it hasn't been done in so long firsthand. PM me if you'd like to work with Mr Archer and I somehow.

Hopefully, we get some helpful tips from GMs or Compbatant on how to best get all the information.
