Froob Engineer Guide

Post by Higain » Thu Mar 14, 2019 7:46 pm

Updated March 12, 2019.

I wrote and edited this guide to help people get started on the game after leaving Arete. Much of the content may be found scattered around the web. I’ve simply updated old, obsolete information and collected it into one easy to use portable ebook. If you’ve no interest in playing engineer, you may still benefit from general game information such as how store roll-over timers function or how RK mission sliders like the chaos setting influence your mission experience.

There’s so much to know and discover in AO and hope that this guide helps ease people into a fun gaming experience- because AO is really fun and different.

I maintain download versions of Epub and Kindle at the very awesome internet archive website. Users may view the complete book at internet archive or download a copy to view at a later date.

I can page through the complete book at archive org using a vanilla Firefox browser.

If you download the Epub book and want to view it using Mozilla Firefox then you'll need an extension. Microsoft Edge requires no special app and will open epub books. I refuse to use use Google products so I can't help with that at all.

I've not used this FBReader: https://fbreader.org/

Calibre ebook creation tool, management and viewer: https://calibre-ebook.com/

Sigil epub book editor if people want to create or edit ebooks: https://sigil-ebook.com/

Hope this helps!
