Work on the Outpost 2 storyline part of the wiki has gone well. I've inserted some of the mission briefings and am loading all the mission briefing graphics that I think Dave uploaded. Still more work to go, but you can see the progress here: http://wiki.outpost2.net/doku.php?id=outpost_2:storyline
Does anyone know where I can find a copy of the original in game help manual (and if any special requirements are required to view)? It doesn't seem to be in version 1.3.5 of the game from our website. I'd like to review the contents of it. I could probably pull from the original CD but I don't have access to my copy in the short term.
Next steps are to finalize novella chapters, finish uploading briefings, and upload all the Tales From New Terra.
I'm learning that while Doku Wiki supports html input, it has to be activated on the site's configuration page. This probably explains why the HTML I was inputting didn't work, since I doubt it is enabled. I don't think there is necessarily a problem with enabling html as long as we are vetting contributors. We would be vulnerable to things like cross-site scripting attacks and maybe some other nefarious acts if anyone with edit permissions wanted to be malicious.
I could also use a plugin like the one here: https://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:divalign2
that would allow centering without enabling HTML. This would require an admin installing it though.
I think for the short term, I'm just going to leave the # # # marker in the chapters left aligned. It is still a clear separator and will paste into a rich text editor nicer than if we put in the the horizontal rules throughout the chapters. If someone enables HTML or pushes the plugin, let me know and I'll fix, but I understand if neither is implemented.
If I manage to fix the VolExtractor, I'll make sure to post what I do in an appropriate place. Not sure how much I want to pull this string though...
