Updating the IESDP

Recommended Posts

Both BAM V2 and MOS V2 format descriptions in IESDP contain errors. I'd use the original forum topics for MOS V2 and BAM V2 instead.

I think this is a Strong Argument for a Baldur's Gate Modding WIki. It would be much easier for WikI users to make edits than it would be to require the Admin to do it every time.

I've had it with all this complaining, so it's now on my long todo.

nah, no cms needed and people are used to the format. I had a similar plan, but more systematic and I also have at least one old release laying around, so history could be preserved. First order of business is to contact igi anyway.

Was anyone able to contact igi lately? I have updated lots of EE-related stuff in my local copy of IESDP which I'd like to contribute.

Not me, it's still way back on my list. I want to convert it to jekyll, so silly mistakes like the hex numbering of opcodes can be avoided automatically, game differences within the same format version more markedly displayed and so on. Github supports it natively.

 

I suggest you fork qwerty's repo and submit a PR. We have to start somewhere. Though I guess I could just upload all the old versions we have laying around too, so there's no need for rebasing a whole repo later.

 

ok it's here: https://github.com/lynxlynxlynx/iesdp

only managed to go one level back. :(

I've updated IESDP and sent a pull request to qwerty1234567's repository.

In the meantime you can visit my own IESDP page if you need up-to-date information about Enhanced Edition features and enhancements.

(@lynx: You update came a few minutes too late. :p )

doesn't matter that much, just one extra revision. Ok, it's easier to review all the new ee stuff that was added, but that's it.

If you guys want, whichever repo was originally forked can be transferred to the Gibberlings3 organization and you can all have commit privileges.

 

I like the idea of hosting it on GitHub Pages since it's convenient to maintain and deploy. I was thinking of maybe using it for mod readmes or mod pages since hosting on the site here is unavailable. I previously tested out the GitHub Wikis functionality for some mod documentation (IR item descriptions), but I think that wasn't a great choice, since all the pages needed unique names and the easy wiki editing wasn't really beneficial for something that didn't require community editing. I also kind of missed the ability to control the styling. I liked Markdown for some stuff, though, so I'm curious if it can be used on GitHub pages in conjunction with custom CSS.

My contributions have been successfully added to qwerty's repository. It's probably the most up-to-date (publicly available) version atm, unless lynx made updates to his own repo as well.

Sure, we need a good way to label inline changes anyway.
