Also last week I started playing RTK XI for the first time in more than 15 years! Anyway I wish you well James and hope everything work out for everyone!
Thanks so much. This makes my day on multiple levels; support and memories alike. People swinging by, checking in, and sharing memories like this make me quite glad that kicking these machines back into working order. Check in with us here from time to time if you feel inclined!

I’ve been sorely tempted to pick up one of the new RTKs I haven’t played.

But if I end up enjoying it, well... I know me... I won’t be very productive for a while. :lol:

These look fantastic. I love how far modding of these various games has come...
I need to find a way to promote this stuff better at KMA.

Interesting. Wonder why I have missed it or why it isn't used more. Very likely the former.

In fact, I probably shouldn't comment a whole lot at all about Reddit being relatively unfamiliar.

I can see how that might be a very deliberate part of the Reddit design: discussion tied to the hear and now.

The RoTK2 mod (Parallel Universes II) is just that -- six fictional scenarios from the three kingdoms period. Technically it's fully playable, but I have some bells and whistles to add before it's ready.
The DoaE mod is still under wraps, although I'm sure some people recognize those portraits and can (sort of) guess what's involved.

There are also some other RoTK2 mods I've been working on that have a ways to go.

The Darro mod: (technically playable, but not complete)

RoTK2-Gemfire: (technically playable, but even less than the Darro mod)

EDIT: I should add that portraits are done for PU II, but the other three have a lot of portraits and maps to finish.

Share more details? I'm curious! Those are some nice portraits, by the way.

I cleared all cookies/cache and made sure to use the https:// www address. I never got around to adding the URL to my script blocker (because I couldn’t figure out how :oops:) so I don’t think that was the issue after all. Maybe I’m just lucky.
I've been knocked a couple times at odd points, now. Rather curious. It occurs to me one possible point of fuss is that, since I am mucking around so much with various links and pages on the internet, I could also be coming in under odd domains. Or following links on this actual website to the wrong version of the URL. But, theoretically, those should all be redirecting. Hmm...

I also have a lot of privacy stuff on my computer.

Theoretically it should be fine to include these sites in any blockers... aside from noscript sorts, blocking first-party cookies, etc...

It's always good to see KMA and SoSZ are back! I've been somewhat occupied while they were down.

It'll take some time, but I think I've been doing a good job.
