Don't get me wrong, I love DarkPhysics to bits.

However, one bit I don't like is the help system it uses.
Personally, I much prefer it interlinking to everything, like the other commands.
So, rather than whine and do nothing, I made a load of new help files that do just that.

Installation:
Rename "index.htm" in "Dark Basic ProfessionalHelp"
Rename "commands.htm" in "Dark Basic ProfessionalHelp"
Rename "keywordsDP.ini" in "Dark Basic ProfessionalEditorKeywords"
Then extract the enclosed rar into your "Dark Basic Professional" directory.

The index.htm file does not correctly link to all help files. I can't figure out why, the source is all fine. I put it down to the time, and that I'm tired. They can be accessed by either typing a physics command in the editor and F1'ing, or via the commands.htm file, so all is not lost.
Other links do not work, but thats down to the help files not linking properly already.

EDIT (and apologies for caps..):

That a lot more convenient and seeing a list of the commands on one page will certainly go a long way to understanding this great add-in

Thanks

Nicely done, only problem is that there are already different versions of commands.htm. Sparky's collision DLL, for example, has been included in a version.

Anyone any bright ideas on how to integrate all these help files easily?

Unfortunately, not without manual editing each time.

I'll knock up AI help commands sometime soon, if someone can point me where they are hiding?

It it possible to extract the commands in Enhancaments Pack and make similar help files?

The updated expansion comes with a incomplete help structure...

I don't have the enhancements pack, unless I know it under a different name.

Can you point me to it?

This is something early, but pretty useful to DBP users, and it's created by TGC, I'll try to do manual conversion if i have time.

Will the new Physics 1.01 helpfile updated.

aha. Well. As I don't have it I can't redo any help files for it. But its not overly hard to write a quick parser and run through every htm file. 'fraid I can't be further help here.

As for Dark Physics update helpfile. They included a chm, compiled help module, which includes all the commands. I don't know how soon I will be updating help files though.
