Alright, i admit, i was wrong in the matter, that both of them are based on the same engine, but - like Thijn said -, there are significant differences between them now. Agree? Anyways, this wasn't meant, as the main point of my post. Instead, it's like the followings below.
I personally see absolutely no use for this. When do you actually need to store those references offline? And if you do, why not save the page as HTML and read it like you normally would?
I do, and probably alot of people too, because i think, it can be extremely useful in general, that you have a complex, but still basic offline guide (ID and/or function, events, their parameters, etc. references), when you'd like to script/code something, especially, when you're working on an offline environment.
For example, users (included me) and even some of the staff, of the deprecated versions of VC:MP were thinking the same way. Probably, thats the pure cause of the existence of the following old documentations too:Weapon ID Listing (by Luke and VG)Skin ID Listing (by Og_loc and VG)
There are more, but i think, now you got my point and the still present old-era people know, what i'm talking about.
But back to the recent wiki and Thijn's question. Yes, of course i could save a single
page as a HTML (with its vital elements, like pictures, stylesheets, etc.), but why should i do like that, when it's also possible to save as PDF, while some browsers natively support PDF reading too? I could even create similar guides, like the above ones, which are compact and highly portable:VC:MP 0.4 Skin ID Reference
Even with this, i'd make hundreds of PDF documents, if i'd like to save all of the useful informations on the wiki. Naturally, technically it'd be possible, to integrate individual pages, but it costs loads of time and effort, while saving even complete categories of the wiki in a book format (Book creating video tutorial
), could be a simple and automated process and it requires only the presence of the Book Creator
) extension, on the wiki. So finally, why arguing about this, instead of simply helping people and thereby, indirectly subserve the growth of popularity of this mod?
