MegaZine3 Demo Package
The 'all-in-one' Demo Package includes everything needed for a quick start, including manulas and examples
Actual MZ3-Tool3 Version release v184.108.40.206 (April 12, 2013)
This packages contains everything needed for tests and small projects: MZ3-Tool3, MegaZine3 Software, Documentation, sample configurations.
The documentation (Beginners , Advanced and Change-History) is separately available as 'doc212.zip' file.
Additionally you can download a complete demo of the 'old' MegaZine3 demo book (mz3demo.zip).
This demo demonstrates some features, and the megazine.mz3 file can be analyzed to get an idea of how a book can be created without the support of MZ3-TOOL3. This approach can be helpful in case you cannot use MZ3-TOOL3 (e.g. as MAC user without access to a Windows system).
Latest changes (patch .92): bug fix; MZ3-Tool3 crashed under certain conditions when adding content using add2page
Latest changes (patch .91): Flash Player 11.7 and corrected MAC versions
Latest changes (patch .90):
Titlws in different languages with different number of pages now always will show all pages; with empty pages at the end for those languages with less pages.
This also is explained in the Advanced manual and a special blog comment.
Small bug fixes and enhancements (Main.as, more inforamtion about used make file, ...)
Page count for chapter borders now based on single page numbers
A vaule '*' for customization_path or add2page_path now creates default subfolders (custom/ and add2page/)
Hints for MAC Users
MegaZine3 runs on all systems supporting FLASH (a HTML5 version will be available soon).
MZ3-TOOL3 actually needs a Windows system (a MZ3-TOOL3 version supporting other systems and with a graphical user interface is planned).
To create a book without MZ3-TOOL3, the configuration file (megazine.mz3) can be created/modified with simply a text editor. As starting point the megazine.mz3 file of the MegaZine3 demo book can be used.
In case of...
