Post Help (F1) Screen Concept and Progress
So we all know that a lot of the players who drop into the game usually have no idea wtf is going on. Granted, this game has a very steep learning curve since there's no tutorial, introduction level or manual able to help them learn. Since the game is a very fast teamwork-dependent game, clueless players usually get yelled at and blamed for whatever goes wrong instead of being patiently taught, and let's face it, that feels shitty for anyone. Sure, there's telling them to use aowhelp, but most players hardly know what a console is (dem newschool TF2/CSS gamers) or simply have no one tell them it exists.

So I figured I'd derp together something to see if I could make a one-screen "quick help" guide to get the new guys started and help remove confusion and bad first impressions. One that can be hit with a default key everyone has and can understand how to use.

Current Version: March 3rd. Will get scaled to lower res once finished


And in the corner it'll tell them that for a real guide to get good, read the packaged All Out War 2 Manual PDF that Getwad/Wadseeker automatically unzips to their WAD folder, and possibly an internet shortcut to the online Wiki once that works.

And yes, I'm aware it doesn't look the best right now. Working on it :)

He kind of just said I should give it a shot too. So I might as well wing it, even if it looks retarded.

Well, it already looks good enough for me, but I'm not the guy who cares about fancy shit.
