What do you need to know ? There is a help file included in Unreal in patch 227 (search for Help.chm in your /Help directory). It should launch from Unrealed Help=>UnrealEd 2.1 Help, but depending on your system, you may have to launch it manually (UnrealEd's button might not work).

In 227i look for \Help\UnrealEd.chm

On my Win7 Home Premium x64 system it doesn't launch properly from within UnrealEd. I have hex edited my UnrealEd.exe to change the forwardslashes to backslashes and it then works as expected.  Wink

Yes, it doesn't launch from UnrealEd in vista either, but you can double-click to open it in the directory. There are problems linked to the discarding of the old help format by microsoft unfortunately. It might require an small patch to launch (I don't remember properly), but that's all I could do.

You may be thinking of the WinHlp32.exe update/addon required to view the old .hlp files? (Or I've forgotten something?)

Which is not to say that .chm files are problem free. Quite the contrary; they have a list of possible maladies ranging from security restrictions to path name weirdness:

The worst is when you compile a .chm under conditions which produce the error; the error page seems to get compiled-in (or maybe it just subtly breaks your .chm) and will display even when the .chm is moved to a problem free location  Huh Shocked Angry

Absolute worst case there are .chm reader programs available:
including one that claims to be open-source and cross-platform! Whee!!  Cheesy

Thanks for the info, that's really useful.
However, the last post in this thread was 3 years old, I doubt the original poster is still interested in this matter. Wink

You must construct additional pylons.
