Exodus: Graphics card patch released
Andrzej Bugajny from the Exodus-Team asked us to release a graphics card patch for Exodus on our homepage. The game is said to run much faster with this. But you'll need appr. 100 MByte space on the hard drive. Exodus is available at our Amiga dealer or directly at Andrzej Bugajny. (snx) (Translation: wk)

Spiel: ToT - Tamar needs new land!
For the third time the popular action 'Tamar needs new land!' gets started.

Since Tamar is once again completely settled new regions have to be opened to give space to new settlers.

These opportunities are really rare and you should use these! On September, 1st there's such an opportunity. Start with other players under the same conditions and show them that you are the one who should get the emperor's crown!

Learn about regions of Tamar that no man has entered before. Be challenged by dragons, undead and other creatures and show that you can compete with other real people.

Hint 1: Our price (250,- Euro) for the first emperor of Tamar who founded his/her empire after January, 1st 2004 can still be won and we would be pleased if you'd be the winner (rules for this can be read in the referring action in the ToT forum).

Hint 2: Enter the keyword 'Shareware' in the serial field when registering for ToT to play for free for some time. A round fee will be demanded when you are deeper into the game. Enter in the notes field that you want to start on September, 1st on new land.

Enjoy playing ToT. (ps) (Translation: wk)
