hmmm,
I aggree with Burning Feet, but must also add, that if the wheel is square or broken in place of round then I'm all for re-inventing it.

Also TGC needs you write the help files, and redo the keywords files for...

1. ShaderData
2. ODE (Since there is still support for that in recent updates.)

It's really hard to use commands that don't show the parameters for.

It does appear that the compiler supports them , however, I could not find any documentation:

There is also other ones like, "keywordsMP" and "Physics" but I don't think anyone uses them anymore.

Also there is some unofficial documentation by MikeS on ODE, but it's very old. in case you want it here is the thread.

As for ShaderData, I don't know of any documentation, besides very little info with DarkShader.

That "Official" TGC wiki does look empty on the main page, but once you type in a search term, there are actually lots of entries.

But that main page is pathetically bare.

I have completed the section on ODE commands. You can find it here

Thanks gamer boots! It's nice website with all those commands, and also having the enhancements plugin help there. (Since I have not found it yet on the forums.)

I think the real joy will come from rewriting some of these examples, and thus making the help files much more useful and relative.

Inconsistency in Help file regarding #constant command:

At Parameters it says:
Quote: "Integer
A value between 0 and 2415919103."

At Description it says:
Quote: "Constants are special tokens that can be defined to hold a fixed value or string."

This besides the fact that declaring a constant as a string doesn't even work.:
+ Code Snippet
Error reported:
Quote: "Constant name 'GraphicsPath$' must use only alphanumeric characters"

Just an update, I have placed all standard commands into a decent wiki. I do apologize for the long response time and this would have been completed a year ago but as some of you may have noticed I had some things come up and was not able to spend a great deal of time online (family matters). Anyway, If any developers of plug ins would like their plug in commands to be added to my archive please do let me know.

-----Updated (September 26 2014)----
A small update on this project. The following sections are completed:
Dark Basic Pro Standard Commands
Dark Basic Pro Enhancement Pack Commands
Dark Basic Pro Pysics and Cloth Commands
Dark Basic Pro Matrix1 Utility Commands
There are well over 2600 pages for you to go through and everything is categorized. You can search , browse alphabetically, or by category.

You can find my DBP wiki here.

I am now at the point that I request plug in developers who want their plug-in documentation included to post here or contact me on the site above.
Special thanks to all who have made this project a success.
