The prerequisites for using the editor is to know how to use Eclipse (workbench) at least a little bit. If you ever started Eclipse or any product based on Eclipse the first time it started with a Welcome page which can be closed (as others also have come to know). Then you can go on with whatever you want.

Every comment/critic is welcome because it helps build better software. I'll try to make a little video "Getting started" and put it on the website (hopefully soon).

Thanx for your input.

Betreff: Re: Help - RPG Next Gen Editor

OK, this might be a stupid question, but what prerequisites are there to
using NextGen? If I download it, all I seem to be able to do is go to the
first screen and I can't go any further... It talks about creating a new
connection, but I've done that, and I don't seem to be able to do any

Maybe I should just stick to SEU...

as the topic of the editor came to the lists a couple of days ago i just
wanted to inform both lists that the editor project has changed into an
open source project. Most plugins will become open source. I think in
this way the editor has the chance to evolve into a very complete IDE
rather than just an advanced text editor.

If you want to participate in the project you are very welcome. Your
help is much appreciated. You can express your help in many ways ... bug
reporting, testing, documentation or even plugin development. Feel free
to do so.


Thanx in advance.
