HTML Version

of The Tracker's Handbook v0.5 By DrAvalance/HTD

Since many people find HTML documents much easier to use than plain text we've decided that it would be a good idea to create an HTML version of the Trackers Handbook . We used frames and links to let you jump easily to other parts of the document . Added some graphics...
In version 0.15b we've decided to add MOD-Plug support so that you can hear your favorite music while browsing through the documents . We though that putting one of our tunes would increase the zip size too much. So we've decided to let you pick your favorite track and use it . So here's what you should do . Pick the file you want to use (it doesn't matter if it is MOD , XM , IT , etc. as long as Mod-Plug supports the format) and zip it if you like . Rename it to "module.mdz" (don't use capital letters) . Under the directory you have the handbook there is a subdirectory "mod" . Copy the file there . Now reload the Handbook and everything should work fine . (Maybe you need to configure ModPlug so you can go to the setup if you right click on it) . Since Version 0.5 we stopped the embedding of ModPlug.

Obviously the HTML version will always come out with a small delay because we have to get the text version before we can update the HTML . We will try to keep this delay as small as possible (1 or 2 days) . The latest version of the Handbook will always be available at this URL :
