New version, new engine

A new version of the interactive manual is released to provide information for the bulk of changes that were packed in RC14 release cycle. The manual is now migrated to Unity engine which will diminish many of the unmaintained Ruby Shoes engine shortcomings. Some of the changes involve:
- better performance
- improved visuals
- no OS platform related issues anymore
- 3 resolutions to choose from
- extended capability that will allow new functionality features

Launch screen and visuals

At startup you will get into the launch screen which will ask for resolution details and language translation choice - currently English only.

Manual translations

Nearly all manual texts are auto-collected from the game data files via scripts. So if you want to see a manual in your language we suggest to go ahead and translate the mod text files. You can read more about the translation itself in the guide below.

I would like to report a problem with the new skillwheel. When i open it and there's a youtube video playing in a background, the skillwheel lags my whole screen (to the point when even cursor won't move), then my screen gets all black except for the youtube video playing. Even if i manage to exit the skillwheel via ctrl+alt+delete my screen keeps bugging until i restart my laptop. I tried this on 2 separate browsers (chrome and edge) and same thing happens. If it's important info i'm using windows 10. Just wanted to bring this minor issue to your attention, keep up the great work and have a nice day :D
