[This is a message for the SMS manual translators]
We've been having some problems with the SMS manual source code. Specifically, there were a number of spurious hyphen characters in the original text of the manual, which were incompatible with the patching system. These meant that created patches could not be applied.
Furatudo has been doing a lot of work on the portuguese translation, and found that special characters with marks over them ('accents' etc), don't seem to be correctly shown in a patch file. This means we can't use patch files to submit updates (e.g. new translations) to the manual.
I've updated the svn repository with a new set of xml pages - there are quite a lot of changes in there, i've removed all the spurious characters, plus all the tabs, and there are a couple of new faq entries as well.
If you've not already started translating, please svn-update your source, to include these changes.
If you're already mid-way through, and working on rev501, then you can try to merge in the new changes (svn-update) if you like, but you might find some conflicts. If this gives you problems, don't worry, just continue working from the version you have, submit back the complete xml files working from rev501, and i'll do the merging.
If any of you aren't sure how the new pages should be looking, there's now an example of a portuguese translated page in SVN: http://svn.ps2dev.org/filedetails.ph...xml&rev=0&sc=0
Completed translations should now be submitted back as a zipped set of xml files, rather than a patch file.
Sorry about this, but better to catch it early than to have all of you face the same problems that Furatudo found.
Thanks again for your help,
And for everyone else:
The manual has just been updated, with an updated URL, and a some new FAQ entries. http://www.daveandzoe.plus.com/sms/sms_usermanual.html
A Portuguese translation has been added! Many thanks to NB for his work!
If you are interested in translating the manual into another language, reply here, or send me a PM. Dave
Manual updated:Instructions on how to skin SMS, plus how to use uLaunchELF. Work is in progress for updating the manual to include all the new features of version 1.6.
just a question here, are you uploading this to ps2-scene as well? cause i see a folder there called "manual", but the link still points to the original site... if you are uploading here as well, would you like me to change the link?
@juddman: I copied the files onto sms.psx-scene.com a while ago, but it didn't work. Could not get the manual pages to appear in my browser on the sms url. I'll upload the latest version to sms.ps2-scene again, and if it works, yes by all means update the link on the sms page.
I'm sure my ISP would appreciate it, because the manual gets over 1000 hits per day now, and with all images, its probably using a lot of their bandwidth!
Weird thing, the pages don't show up for me either... very weird...
EDIT: guess what... they show up after all. I tried moving the single file Manual HTML file to another folder and it showed up correctly with no problems. Could the others not be showing up because they have too many sub-folders? (this question sounds stupid, I've never heard anyhting like it... =X )

Manual updated - see first post in thread for details.
There is one important feature undescribed in the manual. It is the possibility to manualy choose the file for subtitles. Instaed of choosing the movie to play with X, you have to push O, and then you can choose the subtitle file to be used with the movie.
