    Hi:

    I noticed at unity3d.com/support that the various resources have both a
    *.zip file and a *.pdf file, except for the networking demo. Is there
    going to be a networking pdf also? I find a number of things difficult
    to figure out/understand without one. For example, there is a script named
    AuthServerPersonAnimation which I cannot discover where it is used, what
    it is good for, etc. In other cases, it is difficult to figure out how
    various pieces interact or fit together. Since part of the "code" lives
    entirely in the editor and part lives in scripts, it is hard to do something
    like a unix grep to find where items are referenced. This makes it difficult
    to find references to things like the script I mentioned earlier. Perhaps
    there is a better approach that has escaped me? In any case, documentation
    would certainly be helpful.

    Thanks.

    There will be a networking tutorial at some point in the future. At the moment there is an RTF document in the zip file which goes though all the scenes in the project and what they do. In the scenes you can see which scripts are used to do what.

    The AuthServerPersonAnimation and all scripts in the Authoritative Server folder are used in the TPS-Auth scene. You can better learn what they do by opening it up and going through the GOs (there are only a few). and their components.
