Speaking of Volity, is there use case based, "cookbook" type documentation for it?

Currently, no. There is the simple example of Rock Paper Scissors. And we have a lot of wiki pages, and a lot of commented code.

I read through what I'd consider quite a few of the pages on www.volity.org, and I still don't know exactly what I need to create a new game. It's not clear to me what pieces exist and are available for my use and what pieces I have to fill in.

Yeah. We have a guy who's looking at writing documentation. He's asking all these questions too, which demonstrates why we need documentation. :)

Let's put it this way: I have a game I want to implement and make available to the general public. What do I have to do? Which page answers (or at least summarizes) that?

Hm. I think there is no such page.

<http://volity.sourceforge.net/overview.html> addresses some of it (but also a lot of other stuff).

I'll see if I can write a short wiki page that is oriented to the complete newcomer.

(Note: we can move this thread over to the geeks list, if it's going to go on. For those who are completely confused, Volity is an Internet game-playing system that Jason McIntosh and I and some other people are working on. See volity.org.)

Just because you vote for the Republicans, doesn't mean they let you be one.
