    Hello everyone,
    I would like to know if there is going to be an online version of the german help docs for GMS2?
    My brother finds them very useful and a couple of people i know have had the chance to finally get to work with gamemaker thanks to the german translation.
    Me and others would love to be able to browse those documents outside of the IDE without having to sit infront of the computer, on our phones etc.

    I hope you all can help me - i already looked through EVERY file assoicated with gamemaker and their processes, but can only determine that the files are local, but can't find their location.

    Thanks, have a great day!

    Hi, I already had the same idea, but unfortunately I didn't get an answer.
    Anyway, there's a dirty trick to getting German help.
    Find the hidden folder "ProgramData" on drive C or the file "GMS2_German-master.zip".
    Copy it into a folder of your choice and unzip it. The search does not work, however, but you can easily find practically all commands
    via the index (also ignore the search field here).

    @YoYo-Games
    On this occasion, I would like to ask you if you can help with the correct translation in any way. I have already noticed many errors,
    because unfortunately many commands have also been translated. It would have been better to translate only the pure text (in the
    explanation and description) of the individual commands, since the translation sometimes even completely leverages out the search
    for them.

    Here are some examples from the mathematics library:

    Command.........Translation
    choose()............wählen(never translate an command!)
    random()............zufällig
    sin()....................sünde(its also sin(sinus)) in German)
    tan()....................bräunen(Tangens)
    lengthdir_x()........LängeDir_x() ... that doesn't make any sense
    floor()..................Fußboden ... same here
    sign()..................Schild
    mean()................bedeuten
    clamp()................Klemme
    power()................Leistung
    and so on .......

    Let me know if they can help you ;)

    Yes, you can help by reporting these errors. The best way would be to file a bug report from GMS2 (in the Help menu you can find a Report A Bug option), or you can make a topic here with the changes you think should be made (or do both!).

    Thanks!

    Should we also file bug reports for the english docs for simple letter misspells, and grammar errors even though it's mostly one per page ? I have noticed about a dozen errors so far since i started with GMS2 over a month ago... It would take time to find the errors again...

    Yes, you should report any errors like this too when you find them... Preferably only one per report if possible. Thanks!
