Yes, well, I suppose it can be, but I shall ask Johan and his word shall determine how it goes.

Incidentally, in case anyone wonders why the necromancer AAR has not been updated in a while, I've been working my fingers to the bone putting the last finishing touches and polish on the manual and map editor guide.

Barring unforeseen surprises, the AAR should resume on Saturday or Sunday.

There's not much point in having an incomplete manual floating around, it's a manual, it's not that useful without a game to play.

Well the dominions manuals had a lot of information on a lot of pages. I took this with me on my way to work via train for a long time in the past.

If the CoE3 is equal sized It would be indeed great to have them before. But no pressure to anyone. :)

Its not that big.

Personally, there are only two ways I ever read a game manual at all.
If I get it before I get the game.
Or after Ive been playing the game continually for a month.

The suggestion of posting parts of the manual as a preview seems a good idea for me.

I'm especially interested in the modding manual for my work on a online map editor that I have already started. The main problem is that once the game is released, I will probably be too busy playing it to be able to work on the editor for a while ... ^_^

Another video by that last guy

Not as good but he is obviously having fun playing the game. And you get more of a feel for how fast the game moves

A bit hard to do a modding manual when there is no modding yet. A map editor manual, though, that's been done. And at less than 10 pages it's not exactly overly long.

The whole idea of an online map editor actually puzzles me a bit, since the map editor in the game is quite functional and the event stuff is so complicated anyway that you need to type it by hand.

Sorry, I was thinking of the map editor manual, not the modding one.

I see two main uses for an online map editor:
1- using it to preview a map before downloading it
2- using it to manage what the official editor does not, and yes I'm thinking mainly about map events.

It is however possible that the official editor is so complete that mine wouldn't add enough to be really needed, but what you said about events seems to imply that it is not.

Maybe a little ot, but seeing his videos has raisen my 'I want this game now'. He does a good job of showing what the game is even though he is a beginner.

But is it possible to select another color than red for the player? I'm red/green color blind and have a hard time seeing red on anything else but white.
