11== Getting Started ==
12
13Copy the config template related to your OS to tahng.conf,
14then edit to set you username and password for tiles upload in authentication.conf
15
16== Running the client ==
17
18To start generating tiles from the server queue, run "ngcore.pl loop".
19CAUTION: if your country uses a comma for decimal separator (like Germany)
20you need to set your decimal separator to "." instead on windows.
21On linux and other unix-like systems this can be accomplished by setting
22i18n=1 in your tilesathome.conf .
23If you don't do this inkscape will complain and generate empty tiles.
24
25If you want to render a specific tile run ngcore.pl with the xy option
26for example if you want to render the tile number x=2148 y=1332
27(zoom 12 is the default and should not be changed) you would run
28./ngcore.pl xy 2148 1332 12
29
30To upload tiles use "ngcore.pl upload" (this is called automatically
31in loop mode).
32
33
34== Stopping the client ==
35
36The client will stop automatically after completing its job, unless in "loop"
37mode.
38Loop mode can be exited cleanly simply by creating a file called "stopfile.txt"
39in the tilesAtHome directory. Upon encountering this file the client will exit
40after it completes it's current job.

43== Troubleshooting ==
