 +This has the advantage of being able to work on your stories even when not connected to the Internet. You can download a local copy of Twine 2 from the [[http://​twinery.org|homepage]]. Once you unzip the archive you download, you can put the resulting folder anywhere you'd like on your computer.

 +To get started, just start the application that you find inside the folder (on Windows this is the ''​Twine.exe''​ file and on Linux it is just called ''​Twine''​).

 +This reportedly does not work using Internet Explorer on Windows. Firefox, Chrome, or Opera do not have this problem, however.
