Enjay's Dehacked information and tutorials

Please read this note.

DEHACKED Tutorials

These are based on what I have found out whilst using dehacked myself. So, they are my best guess as to how the various functions operate. Most of the things I want dehacked to do work, so I am assuming I am doing something right.

Dehacked comes with a text file that explains much of what I am covering here, to a greater or lesser extent, and it is worth a read.

Anyway, I hope this helps someone.
