Tooltips or help file

I have been testing WinUAE betas for years now.
When I first knew WinUAE and used it, many features and Amiga hardware were unknown for me.
I had to search the internet to find much about Amiga's hardware.
I have succeeded in knowing much about Amiga and WinUAE, but it took me a lot of effort.
WinUAE does not have a help file, and most of the features is not illustrated via tooltips or balloons.

I suggest, Toni, that you either make tooltips or balloons for all WinUAE options, or supply a help file with WinUAE install packages.

I know that it may distract you from updating the emulator itself, but I think that would be very useful. That also can release the pressure on English Amiga Board from silly questions, and can help beta testers understand what is going on in the change logs.

STeem emulator have helpful scrolls in pseudo retro style, maybe it's not bad idea for WinUAE.

I can add more tooltips but I am not going write them myself, for me they are 100% obvious, I don't know what it should say..

Help file: never.

There is always this help file: WinUAEHelp224.zip (latest version).

I have always found it very useful, and it's updated regularly.

Correct me if I'm wrong but once you add the WinUAE.chm to the WinUAE directory, the CHM file provides some contextual help to the WinUAE interface.
