After struggling with point lights for a day, it’s my opinion that attenuation needs to be covered in the manual.
no need to hesitate. just write it the manually actually is a wiki so you can add things you found missing.
to register a wiki account and edit there is a tiny dot you have to click on.
hard to find if you dont know its there.
see this one http://home.arcor.de/positiveelectron/files/dot.png
contribution is highly welcome
I was a little nervous to edit the manual but I did it.
thx for contributing
if you find more stuff missing in the manual. dont hesitate to add them.
