The Ultimate AW User Guide is a modification made to the official AW User Guide which enhances it by adding newer, more relevant categories and new features such as wiki inclusion and a comprehensive teleports list. It is easy to install and free to use. It is also simple to customize for your own needs.

This takes the place of the existing user guide, which may be found in the AW tabs menu by pressing F9 and looking under the 'User Guide'/'Help' tab.

The full user guide documentation and download can be found here.

History

The User Guide was developed in October 1, 2009 by Hyper Anthony. The idea and concept were based on an Ultimate Teleports List which was produced and published by SW City in the early 2000s. Much of their original content has been ported into the latest incarnation of this guide.

Active Worlds often features major events and a section is typically included in the weeks before the event to provide in-browser information for users that are planning to attend. To date, this type of handbook guide has been created for the 2010 AWReunion and 2010 Cy Awards. This information is then removed in versions released following the event.

Awards

The Ultimate AW User Guide won the Best Bot/Software category in the 2010 Cy Awards.
