I did a short write-up, but this is better:

We can't use someone's video review. You can create video of gameplay, intros (if there are any), perhaps a video review and that will go to Abandonia channel on YouTube. It has to be by our members.

As for Legions, pleeeeease zip or rar the game and then re-upload it. I can't download file-by-file in order to zip it again. Also, do NOT include save games or anything else that is personal. We tend to provide the game as-is, like you would get it when you bought it. If for some reason you think something personal should be provided (like a savegame for some reason), please explain why it should be provided and it may be placed in Extras, but not in the game archive itself.

As for the current Legions.zip file on FTP with .HLP file, should the Help file be separated from the game archive? We can add it as extra but if it was among the game files then perhaps include it in the zip as well.


Lastly, about the manual scan. We can use the current one (the bigger one), but why adding pictures into Word in a first place? Why not creating pdf straight from jpgs?

I tried two online converters (this and this) and it worked fine more or less. You can probably find some free tool to download with more options if you want that. Ideally pictures would have same resolution so no margin is needed. So, if you choose to re-create the manual, try to do it with as less margin (white space at edges) as possible, so pdf pages may looks as much as the manual pages. And it can go page by page, you don't need to connect two pages.

As for the manual size, 50 MBs may be a bigger manual, but somehow those pictures in 11MB manual seemed a bit small. So don't save the space, we want pictures to be as big as the manual page. Perhaps you can reduce size by reducing quality or dpi of jpg, but only if it doesn't really change the final outcome much. We prefer quality than saving space.

I created pdf form the old manual unless you come with better solution.

Sorry for long post. The most important was to get the game and material, these are details that would be nice if you can handle them
Thx

For creating PDF files, I recommend PDFMate Free PDF Merger. It works like a charm.

Hey Marko. It has been a while. Did I every complete your request. I went to search for Legions and did not find it. Perhaps I let the ball drop on the zip and the manual. Let me know and I'll get on it. I just don't remember where I left off in the process.

Hey, it's been a while indeed. Welcome back

Your material is still on FTP in folder gesulli. You may leave that there and create new folder with your username geelsu. There upload zipped archive and possibly new manual. And give more explanation what is in .HLP file and was it part of archive or did you created it.
