Mercenary site

Post by Symoon »

Hi,

Hoping a bit of promoting is not inappropriate: the Mercenary Site has been updated (annual update ;))
http://mercenarysite.free.fr

Infos about Mercenary, Damocles, Mercenary III, and Novagen.

Hi all,

Ok, 6 years later, I'm invading the forum again for some self-advertising ;)
The site has been updated, a rather big update BTW.
Enjoy.

Thanks!
The goal was to find back all the material collected the past 20 years (files, information in e-mails, ...) and put it online. Took a while but glad it's done and shared now ;)

PS: Brume, thank you too, with a few years of delay sorry ;)

Symoon,

Your site comforts me as it reminds me of the early years when I was looking for information on Novagen, and watching as MDDClone was finally finished.
It was sad to hear about Mr. Woakes, but he'll be forever remembered on Targ and Earth.

I've done my best to keep the site simple - avoiding Javascript if possible, Flash or other things that died in between.
The goal 20 years ago was to keep it visible on old machines.
Since then to be honest, I haven't followed web design technics and I stick to my very old and obsolete knowledge :D

The green text is normal, it's supposed to be in the game's "Benson computer" mood. It's likely that the background GIF picture (with Damocles dark blue space) is not displayed.
I can add a dark blue background to fix it, but I suspect you won't see the text with CAB then (which if I understant correctly, is not showing the text in green) - let me know :D

To be honest in the new update I gave up the ST/Amiga display, thinking almost no-one would use them. I keep willing it to be visible on 1024 pixels wide screens, that's the low-limit I set in 2020.
