Hey, would some one help me to improve this tutorials about allegro???

If you have time to read it, you can make a contribution by telling me to fix the orthographic errors that certainly exist... Or other important thing about allegro...

I need a lot of criticism here, I need people like gnolam, in fact I need lot of gnolams!!!

We must destroy the page...!!!! :o:o

Web page: www.cerebrospain.com/allegro_en

PS: All the page is BETA!!!

A couple of issues I found:

  • The links are completely indistinguishable from normal text.

  • The instructions are Windows specific, but that is not mentioned anywhere.

  • .rar >:(

Oh... and:

The installation might take around 30 minutes, depending of your speed connection to Internet, its weight is approximately 280 Mb.

...but Data does not weight !!

Why aren't the tutorials in Spanish? It's called CerebroSpain after all... English users could just refer to the wiki right?

EDIT: Oh, just clicked the flag, how silly of me. I'm still wondering why all the effort in translating it.

You must be kidding me... The Wiki? Static link? configuring code::block to do static link? tutorias for newbies? WHERE!!!??? I wouldn't have create all that!!

The only good one is "Configuring Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 For Allegro 5.0.0"

Ah.. and, all the "Allegro 5 Tutorial - Tutorial for Allegro 4.9 (4.9.21+ currently)" it's outdated but still working... I guess.. :P I'm using the code :D

The rest..... For example the manual about C::B is talking about The 4.2.2 Stable Version of allegro :-/ ...

Your page seems to have taken quite a bit of effort! Congratulations!

The aforementioned Wiki is here. I think that someone with your enthusiasm could be very helpful to expand it, rather than to create your own page. ;)

Well, it is called a Wiki for a reason, isn't it? Above all, people can correct the mistakes you make in the tutorials that way. You can also upload files without using your own server space...

"Además, tengo unas ansias muy grandes de corregir esos errores ortográficos en las páginas en español. Me refiero a las tildes que faltan, y son muchas." :o

Is it against the wiki's rules to post articles on different languages?

I'm using Firefox and the only links that are blue are at the top.

Taking a quick look, I see why
<a ...><p>...</p></a>

Instead of <p><a ...>...</a></p>

Which means, the <p> tags' color setting overrides the <a> tags' color setting.

Because of the link issue, I didn't even know there were subsections already done :P

Also, do you really need MSYS?

If it doesn't resolve the issue, we'll evaluate whether the latest round of anti-speculative-execution patches we've had to apply could somehow be responsible. (The performance impact of this fix is estimated to be just a couple of percent, but a banana on a football field isn't even that much and yet woe unto the quarterback who steps on it.)

Nope, if we get enough different languages, I might figure out how to properly enable mediawiki's language features...

Aww, I forgot to fix that... :(

Because Actually what I have to do is..

<a link here ... > text here ... </a>

Also, do you really need MSYS?

Well actually for these tutorials I don't, but for the next tutorials about compiling Allegro I will need it... But I Think it's important for other things.. For compile different libraries an things like that, for that reason I recommend it, but I might change that... :P
