W:A Fiddler

How to use

Welcome to the How to Use section, made by people who have used the program for new players. Using The Fiddler allows you to access many options that cannot be edited in Worms Armageddon, and you may need some help finding out what everything does. We have split the section into different categories because there is so much to look at, and we hope it will be useful.

This section was never completed, and only includes the introduction, linked below.

Introduction (by Edward Webb)

How does the program work, and what can it do? I will show you around the various menus and options to help you on your way, and will discuss the program's history from early 1999.

Installing The Fiddler

When you have downloaded the program, you will need to install it in order to make the program work. This page will help you with how to install the program in detail.

How to Play

After you have opened the program for the first time, you will need to know how to start a game and what happens while playing in Worms Armageddon.

Getting Started

This page will show you what the different buttons and options mean, and how you can create your own fiddler files. We have included tips incase you have problems, or are overwhelmed by the options.

Using the Menus

A general look at the drop-down menus that appear in the program, which includes how to save files, skipping the intro in W:A and about the identification box.

How to...

A large section that has four pages. They consist of general options, Worms options, using Events and changing the Weapon ammo and delay, and will help you create basic fiddler files.

The Weapon Editor

As big as the How to... section, the weapon editor is very powerful, and allows you to create your own weapons. You can also find out how to use weapon modules, which are seperate from fiddler files.

Additional Information

This page is about some of the parts of The Fiddler not covered by the above categories, well worth a look incase you missed anything.
