Request for the content of /help menu on Café

Post by Concord »

I'm working on creating a page
about the help menu on Café
It would be helpful
for me if you could
hand me a copy of the content
rather than me taking screens of
the menu :)

The purpose of the page is to enlighten
both Café regulars on how to help newbies
and to newbies how to help themselves

This is the raw config for the auth and game topics:

Code: Select all

ADD_HELP_TOPIC game "How to play on this server" "0xffff88The setup is very simple: At the opposite end of the map from where you start is the enemy's fortress zone. Your objective is to conquer that zone (by entering it and staying in there until it collapse) and to try to prevent the other team from doing the same to yours.\n\n0xffff88The formation in which you start is a very dangerous one. If you misbehave you can easily kill half of your team. Therefore, immediately after the round starts, 0xff0000move as closely as possible to the centre player0xffff88 and stay that way until you have to split. It takes practice, but you'll learn when exactly you have to split."

ADD_HELP_TOPIC auth "How to authenticate" "0xffff88The so-called Armathentication process is mainly done trough the 0x88ffff/login0xffff88 command.\n0xffff88When you are authenticated, it ensures that you are who you pretend to be to the server and to the other players. That would allow you, on some servers, to do specific stuff once you are granted.\n\n0xffff88The authentication process is the same across all authorities:\n0xff0000*0xffff88 Type 0x88ffff/login <authority>0xffff88 in chat, where 0x88ffff<authority>0xffff88 is the authority you want to authenticate with.\n0xff0000*0xffff88 Once the password prompt appears, type in your username you own on the authority and your password. You shouldn't append @authority to your username!\n0xff0000*0xffff88 Once the authority confirmed you are who you pretend to be, a message appears and you are now authenticated.\n\n0xffff88 There are serval public authorities:"

ADD_HELP_TOPIC auth_x "How to authenticate using http://xclan.armagetron.co.uk/" "0xffff88You can use your account from the official ¦×¦ clan forums (http://xclan.armagetron.co.uk/) or from any sister sites (such as http://fff.armagetron.co.uk/board/) to login using Armathentication.\n0xffff88The process is the same as with other authorities:\n\n0xff0000*0x88ffff /login x\n0xff0000*0xffff88 Fill in your username and password once the prompt appears (case sensitive)\n0xff0000*0xffff88 You're auth'd!\n\n0xffff88If you get an UNKNOWN_USER error message saying you should relogin, just logout then relogin from the official ¦×¦ clan forums.\n0xffff88http://0x88ff88xclan.armagetron.co.uk0xffff88/"
ADD_HELP_TOPIC auth_forums "How to authenticate using http://forums.armagetronad.net/" "0xffff88You can use your account from the official armagetronad forums to login using Armathentication.\n0xffff88The process is the same as with other authorities:\n\n0xff0000*0x88ffff /login forums\n0xff0000*0xffff88 Fill in your username and password once the prompt appears (case sensitive)\n0xff0000*0xffff88 You're auth'd!\n\n0xffff88If you get an UNKNOWN_USER error message saying you should relogin, just logout then relogin from the forums. This is needed to convert your password so it can be checked against the one you enter in the authentication dialog.\n0xffff88Note that you also need to have at least one post to be able to log in."
ADD_HELP_TOPIC auth_ct "How to authenticate using http://crazy-tronners.net/" "0xffff88You can use your account from the crazy-tronners forums to login using Armathentication.\n0xffff88The process is the same as with other authorities:\n\n0xff0000*0x88ffff /login crazy-tronners.com\n0xff0000*0xffff88 Fill in your username and password once the prompt appears (case sensitive)\n0xff0000*0xffff88 You're auth'd!\n\n0xffff88If you get an UNKNOWN_USER error message saying you should relogin, just logout then relogin from the forums. This is needed to convert your password so it can be checked against the one you enter in the authentication dialog."
