Hello and welcome to MCS' Coding Tips. Here you will find some lesser known information about the code in general, as well as tutorials explaining how to set up some specific things in the code.

As for the tutorials, some basic knowledge and experience is assumed. Also, keep in mind that all tutorials are written and tested using the original code as a starting point. If you already made some modifications yourself, just copying and pasting the code found in the tutorials may not work. In that case, you'd better not use them, unless you know what you're doing.
All tutorials have been tested by myself and at least one fellow Wolfer.
The tests have been performed using Borland C++ version 3.1. Version 3.0 might also work, but we cannot guarantee this.
