After long hours working with FMODEX, I’m bored to pick fmodex source to read documentation.
Chm format isn’t a good format. On something other than Windows, is not easy to find a chm reader, and when found it, font is too small, or charset problem …
So I have the idea to make an online version of this documentation. All you need to show it is a web browser.
URL is : http://fmodex.atikae.fr/
If you want to redistribute this link, is not a problem. There will never had some advising, or something like that. The only way content change, is I update the documentation.
Good programming 😉

Yeah, it’s true.
But actually, official fmod online documentation doesn’t have any search engine include.
And method, and class name are really exaustive. And in each page there are enough link to other page which are very helpful to understand how fmodex works. Index is very explicit. So I don’t think search is useful.
Now another link for access to documentation is available. He’s not same DNS server : http://fmodex.atikae.eu/
the reason we switched from pdf to chm was because apparently xchm works on unix/mac etc, and people requested we just do this (because the pdf version wasnt converting properly and lacked the navigation stuff chm offers).
Thats a good conversion though, did you just decompile it and host it? Or was there more to it, we could probably do something similar on our wiki or support page.
Actually it’s just a conversion makes by archmage. But I really think is not harder to make a parser from chm to wiki format, and there is helpful to find all documentation centralized into the wiki. Pending, in my opinion, HTML format is the best.
Here a description by chm file format : http://www.speakeasy.org/~russotto/chm/chmformat.html
If someone wants to do it, I think it should good.
