Editing Code Tutorial Overview

This is the second in the series of basic Ares coding tutorials.

What We’ll Cover

Although you can use the tinker command for quick code tasks, the bulk of Ares code lives on the server, like the news and connect files in Penn/Tiny. To change the code, you’ll need to edit these code files. There are several ways you can do this. This tutorial will show you how.

What You’ll Need

This is primarily an explanatory/video-based tutorial. It’s helpful (but not required) if you have coder privileges and server access on an actual Ares game so you can try out what you learn.
