reinhart : it does not mean a so big amount of work : when a question is asked and not present in the faq, or vaguely anwered, just modify the faq rather than writing the complete answer in the message board and put a pointer to your answer in the faq.
It's not exactly a faq, then.It should be something everybody could edit and improve. A wiki ?
nescphp : does your host permit collaborative work on a document ?
I like the wiki idea, it's faster to work and easier to organize our ideas(especially since many of us are expecialized in a specific portion or detail of the Saturn). We could use a free implementation if nescphp could not do that, under http://www.swiki.net/ or another wiki-farm.
Taka : I think it would be better for us to use a software of our choice (yes, free and GPLed) on any web space, rather than relying on a specific host AND soft. This said, I do not know much about wikis.
Djidjo : I agree. sx might be a good place for this faq/wiki.
This is a good idea. But we should split everything up, instead of having one massive faq. Have one faq for installing the compiler, and getting hello world to work. Another faq for getting your program to work on a real saturn. Another faq for using the sound processor, the backup library, taking input, etc. What I was hoping was that each person who enters the contest would do a little write-up on any neat features they used. For example, I'll put up a little tutorial on how I did the menu structure of my code. Another thing I'll do is do a tutorial on how to do basic operations with the backup library. Now if everyone did a tutorial on what they got to work, we wouldn't need to rely so much on Sega's official docs (which are a pain in the ass). Just my two cents.
