Hello.
What happened to the old page of Renpy's doc?

Yes. I know, it has become outdated. But this resource contained a lot of useful information... :(
Cookbook, FAQ, Russian page...

Jeez, just before Xmas I recommended the old shake effect cookbook to someone ( viewtopic.php?p=472714#p472714 ), and the code and examples were still there. Now, following the link I posted, I can't find anything. I hope that's just a momentary server problem.

I also noticed this yesterday while looking for something that the new documentation doesn't fully explain like the old documentation did.
Hopefully its just a bug as there was a lot of very useful functions in there that aren't yet in the new documentation despite still working as intended or in rare cases, suit my personal projects better than the current documentation does.

Hopefully, if they are removing it all, they are planning to integrate a version of it all into the current documentation.

I'm trying to figure out what to do here. The wiki has been locked off for a long time now, and insofar as functions are left out, it's because they're obsolete and shouldn't be used in modern versions of Ren'Py. I'm leaning towards trying to bring back the wiki as static html pages, but other things are more important uses of my time.
