Tutorial Request Thread
« on: September 21, 2014, 03:04:13 PM »
Not actually a tutorial, but a tutorial request thread.

I'm old and experienced so I don't exactly realize what is missing from the tutorials section unlike some of our newbies.

Please post any subject of RA2 that has no tutorial thread here, I or another person will probably pick up on it and make a tutorial thread.

Note : Please do research before asking for new tutorials. I want no "hey do an AI tutorial" when there are at least 5 different ones already on the site.

Oooh I got one: mesh normals in a .GMF

I've tried over and over, but I cant get anything to work. I can kind of work around it by setting culling to 1, but that's poorly optimized and collisions are just broken.

That won't be me then.

Also maybe we should make a general .GMF help thread...

If we're requesting for tutorials them let me explain this idea despite bending the rules of the forum a little.

Now I myself want to learn about some of the tricks in this game but I find the tutorials bit hard to read not that I can't read very well I can as long it's in a book and not on a computer.  So I ask for this would anyone and I mean anyone who's a veteran of Ra2 do some video based tutorials and hell it can help if the person sees what the teacher is doing so they get a better idea of what they're supposed to be doing.
The art of insanity is the very core of art itself.

That's a good idea. I could make something about t_verts and t_faces if it actually becomes a thread and people need help with it.

That sounds useful. Especially for beginners

Great idea, Naryar! I'd be very interested in hearing what everyone is struggling with.

DSL3 as such is becoming DSL2.2 very very soon as far as I'm aware and as such may involve a whole load of new components and/or balance changes, so it's probably jumping the gun to write anything quite yet.

Has there been a tutorial (or meta discussion) about Ironforge yet? I've not seen any information regarding what weapons are betting in what situations, and the weight/power efficiency of motors etc
