    I started playing.


    13 new missions. If Looking Glass Studios and Ion Storm were so fast as we are, we would have had Thief 1000 ;-)

    I am afraid to say I already played two missions and one had terrible texturing, the other had also terrible texturing but was still enjoyable...

    Unfortunately, mine too ! I created it when my videocard passed away ... When I saw the screenshots Yandros sent to me, I saw how much work I had to do.

    Vlad Midnight has informed me that the screenshot pages at my website don't work in Firefox - I've no idea why, I only know just enough about HTML to make my basic website. I can't imagine what I might have done on those pages that Firefox can't handle, but I guess that's just the way it goes. If any HTML gurus care to look at the code and tell me what's causing the problem, I'll try to fix it - just send me an email so we don't clutter up this thread with any more technical web jargon.

    -img src="act03.jpg"-

    You should add the full path to the images:

    -img src="http://alabala.com/path/act03.jpg"-

    Most certainly not, that's just plain bad web authoring.

    The pictures work just fine for me in both Opera 8.52 and Firefox 1.0.2, though admittedly I only have an older version of Firefox installed at the moment.

    Agreed, if I use the full path, I have to update the files every time I move them to a new location. Relative paths are your friend! Glad to hear it works in an Opera and older Firefox, NV...

    There are definitely missions that were created by newbies. I've just seen that one of the mission has air brushes that are not aligned to grid.

    Hmmm! I'm quite disappointed in architectural view.... I've looked all thirteen missions though. Nice excepts are The Night Shift, or Keyhunt. Keyhunt's late afternoon sunshine is unforgettable.

    I'm using the latest version of Firefox, the screenie pages don't work for me. I just get little icons.

    Eshaktaar told me how to fix it and I will correct it soon. Goddamn slashes.

    You're missing all the closing </p> tags, maybe that has something to do with it. Also, the <center> tag is depreciated, you should use <div align="center"> instead.
    When are the W3 finally going to accept "centre" as well?

    Sorry for hijacking the thread, better get back on topic now!

    OK, can someone for whom it failed before try again?
