I think this estimate may be generous. Also, he will still need to get rid of the hangover as well. Whiskey is not his drink.
Hangovers, the reminders of good times <3

With a bit of luck on the Super Typhoon side, the God Hand should be back in business and able to set up that wiki within days. Jet lag, hangovers, and weather permitting.

http://alien.chaosforge.org/wiki/ <- login as with DoomRL wiki (forum login with at least one post). You guys should decide on the general outlook probably first. Once at least some data will be present, I'll link it from the AliensRL page and make news about it!

Everyone was prodding me about it, and now that it is finally up, nobody cares anymore? :/

I spent a good chunk of last night searching through the code to figure out how a lot of the game mechanics are formulated. Gonna need to spend some more time before I can start putting it in concise and understandable prose. I mean, sure, I can copy-paste what's already displayed in the game as much as the next guy, but there are very few of us who can actually write down, for instance, the process of an attack's accuracy from beginning to end. I'll have plenty of time for that this weekend, in any case.

EDIT: Just finished the data-dumps for Weapons and Items. Keep checking every so often for other additions!

EDIT 2: Added an "accuracy" article that explains exactly how weapons calculate their damage and hit chance. I'm guessing a lot of people are interested in this.

Which docs do you search and how? That would be helpful, so I can be helpful in kind!

Game Hunter has source access, so he can provide raw data. We need it refined, cross-linked, formated and added strategy info though.

I don't mind co-sponsoring another Strategi Wiki competition to help get that populated.  =)

GH will be sending me information to help him get it all on-line. I'm also thinking of making comparisions between different guns.
