Board Version.
(Beware the manual is not up to date. We working on tool all the time and our manager have not enough time to update it regularly. Next update of manual will be after the tool will move to new domain.) If you have any questions to things that are not in manual simple pm Loki or Loki in game
We installed Mediawiki at http://drpg.info and will try to move the manual there and make it up to date.

New! How to import existing dinoz to the tool in few seconds

First of all, what is this tool good for?

This tool is great for builds!
You can easily create builds for different dinoz races and share them with one click. Discuss your build with friends and improve on the fly. You can easily copy-and-paste the builds that other players made in this tool with one click. You (will) have some nice instruments for analyzing builds (like stats of dinoz, rolls counter, target level for build) and of course some nice features like writing comments on your builds, sorting of builds and translation of builds made with other language version of the tool into your preferred language.

It is awesome for making a list of your Dinoz!
You can have access to the list of your dinoz anywhere with an internet connection. You can simply mark what roll you get at your last level up and the system will remember it. You are able to change the build of dinoz on the fly and to adjust your build in few clicks if your dinoz is "heavy" or lacking rolls in some of the elements. You can share your dinoz in a few clicks and your friends can see your build and how many rolls in each Element you already have so they can give you useful advice on changing the build :) You will get some tools for analyses of progress of your dinoz that should help you with changing the build.

You can ask for more features that you need!
We (small team of one dev, one designer and one manager) are working on the tool right now, so you can easily ask for any features that you would like to implement in the tool and if we agree it will be done sooner or later :)
You can see the list of implemented and requested features: here

Manual
Registration
First of all you need to register:
Follow this link and you will see the registration form. In the top right corner of the registration form you can change the language of interface and content of tool (skills, races, etc.)
Image
Chose nick (the best way is to choose the same with your english or german nick in DinoRPG so you will be activated asap). You can leave E-mail field empty, it is only for restoring your password if forget it. If you want to choose nick that is not the same with your DinoRPG nick please contact admins via PM in game to Loki on english server or to Loki on german server or via email: tool@drpg.info.
You don't need to register at the board, where this manual temporary posted. You ONLY need register in tool. tool and board are not connected.

After registration, as soon as you are activated by admins you can log in.
At the top left you'll see 4 Tabs: Dinoz - list of your Dinoz; Builds - for making builds; Trash - place where all deleted dinoz and builds collected and Demon tickets- tool for calculating number of demon tickets that you get from sacrificing Dinoz.

Dinoz
Image

You will probably make some purely theoretical builds for future dinoz or for discussing with other players. Other builds will be connected to the Dinoz that you already own. Every Dinoz must have a corresponding build that you will see when you look at their Build overview. However, not every build must have a corresponding Dinoz.

Now for the menu items that you see.

To the top right:
New dinoz - create a new dinoz - more info in section "New Dinoz"
Update Order - You can drag and drop your dinoz in the list to have them in the order you want. Then press "Update order" to save your order of dinoz. It is possible to update the order of dinoz only if no filter is applied.
Server - allows you to sort your dinoz depending on different servers you play
Filter - allows you to sort your dinoz depending on different races

You see the columns: Name, Race, Level - if you don't understand what those mean, how did you even read this far?
Rolls - shows number of rolls in every element, that your dinoz already has
Average Dinoz (now) - shows the expected number of rolls a Dinoz of this race would have at the same level as your current dinoz's level (i.e. probability of getting that element each level up * # of level ups you have had)
Required - Required number of rolls in every element to get all planned skills in build.
X - The target level of your dinoz (for further details see the entry Level in section New build)
Average Dinoz (X) - Number of rolls in every element, that average dinoz get at the target level X.
Operation - operations that you can do with your dinoz within the tool.

It is possible to share your Dinoz and builds to show them to other players. How sharing actually works:
Each dinoz and build get a unique link (32 digits and characters). With this link everyone can see dinoz and build, however it's almost impossible to guess the link to your dinoz, so no one will know the link to your dinoz unless you tell them.
It is also possible to "unshare" your dinoz and build, so you will delete this link and no one except you will be able to see them (old links that you posted at different places will stop working!).


Image = Private (Share) = you will see this icon when your dinoz is not shared, pressing on this icon will share your dinoz (generate the sharing link), and change the icon to Image.

Image = Unshare = icon shows that your dinoz is shared, pressing on this icon will unshare your dinoz (delete the sharing link) and change the icon to Image.

If your dinoz is shared, then in this case close to the name of your dinoz you will see such icon
Image = Shared (Link) = this icon leads to the shared Dinoz you can also get that sharing link by right click and using context menu. You can give that link to other players in order to show them the progress of your dinoz.

Image allows you to edit your dinoz, it means you will see the same menu that you saw when you created this Dinoz (See "New Dinoz" section for more details)

Image = Delete = moves Dinoz to Trash

Pressing on the name of you Dinoz will lead you to the dinoz overview:

Dinoz overview:
Image
View - the tab where we see statistics of the dinoz and we can input the rolls a dinoz gets. Simply pressing on Image close to the element icon increases the number of rolls in this element. Image decreases number of rolls in that element. Statistics are calculated only for skills that was already taken by your dinoz not for the whole build.

If there is public link you will see in menu to the right from View: Shared (Link) | Unshare or if there is no public link: Private (Share)

Shared (Link) - shows you public link to your build/dinoz. Click it to find out what link you should send others.
Unshare - destroys public link. Public link will become invalid and no one else will be able to see your dinoz/build
Private (Share) - generate new public link. Please note that new link will differ from old one so if you unshare/share you'll get the new link.
Edit - allows you to edit your dinoz, it means you will see the same menu that you saw when you created this Dinoz (See "New Dinoz" section for more details)
Delete - moves your dinoz to trash

To the right from Delete you see the menu part Build: there are listed operations that you can do with a build of this dinoz. See the section "Build" for more details.

Add/Remove skills
Image
Under the name of the build you see the tabs with element names; tab Spheres and tab Comments.
Pressing on the element tab allows you to choose skills for your build. You need only check the boxes for skills at the ends of the paths for this element. After that press Build Element and system saves the skills in your build and adds all needed low level skills automatically.
You can later uncheck some boxes or check new ones simply by pressing "Build element" after you have finished changing this element.
Choosing double skill adds automatically all needed skills in other path. The double skill can be taken in only one path.
Reset Element removes all checks for this element.
In the tab Spheres you can choose what spheres you are going to give to dinoz with such build as well.
And in tab Comments you can write any comments on build, but don't forget to press Save comments at the end.
