for reading the manual initially i agree, but in esp pinball extreme where the gameplay, ---- and largely the keys, actually can change from table to table I find it to be a pest if i just want to quickly bang on the game for five minutes after a long stretch of absense.

i love reading manuals before I start playing a new game, ---- but to read manuals again and again just because I haven't played a certain game for a while feels rather redundent to me.


that's one thing i really like in Jim's games, and the gma engine, there are ways of very quickly reviewing keys and basic gameplay instructions from within the game.

That's why a manual in HTML format is so cool. You can easily and quickly get to what you want to look for. Review it before playing. It only takes a minute of so.

Subject: [Audyssey] Another Draconis thought


I was just playing some pinball and another thought occurred to me.

It'd be great if there was a way to read each table's description in Esp pinball Xtreme and the party pack (and hopefully future party packs), without having to close the program and open an html guide.

perhaps each table could have a "read table description" option in it's menue, which would read the appropriate section from the manual using Sapi. that would save casual pinball players like myself, ----- and especially ones with head's like empty buckets (even more like myself!), a lot of unnecessary opening and closing of programs.

Beware the Grue!
