1.2 What is the Ultimate AW User Guide?

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 Ultimate AW User Guide won a Cy Award on November 13, 2010 for Best Bot/Software. Thanks everyone for using and recognizing the user guide as a helpful resource! :)
