History of the site

May 8th, 2017

Interesting how a site I built 15 years ago still occasionally generates feedback. This time C-dark sent me a link to his youtube video on how to collect all 4 special artifacts, so I have added it to the links section.
By the way, I assume almost all the other links there will be dead by now, but I don't feel the need to clean it all up.

March 21st, 2014

One more score added. Since that player asked my opinion on MM X, I put some of my thoughts in a new page Thoughts on MM X.

Jan 21st, 2014

After 4 years, someone sent me a score again.
In case you didn't know yet, the new Might and Magic X should be released within days.

Feb 14th, 2010

Added new score.

June 20th, 2005

Fixed a bug in skills (Ranger GM in ID monster; thanks Humphrey); added new score.

February 22nd, 2004

Added small bug to the list; added new score.

June 17th, 2003

Added link to new patch (at the unofficial patch page).

February 27th, 2003

September 27th, 2002

Added a new translation from Swedish (see fun page). Updated link to Telp's Tavern. Added link to main page to go to the frames version (e.g. google will direct you to the main page in stead of the index; thus you miss the content list on the left.)

September 22nd, 2002

Added score, corrected optical mistake in FAQ.

August 16th, 2002

Added score.

July 16th, 2002

Fixed wrong links to the funny screenshots. (Bad case of sensitivity ;) )

July 6th, 2002

Well, finally another update. (Had to tear myself away from Morrowind for this!)
Added FAQ entry about the tight hole in the dark passageway, a few additions to the bug list (thanks GazDone, esp. for explaining how to get a freebie at the Tjorad mine). Added a few Swedish translations to the fun page. (courtesy of Dr Katla)

June 17th, 2002

There is good news and bad news: good for you is I returned from holiday, which is bad for me ;)
Good for me is that Morrowind arrived in the mail, and probably bad for you, since I will most likely be too busy with that to add much more to this site. I will keep try to keep it up to date for at least a bit longer, and add scores when I receive them.
Added a new score, and updated link to Flamestryke's new location.

June 1st, 2002

Added 2 scores and a FAQ about speed game (pilfered from Telp's Tavern without asking permission; mail me if you want it removed.) Added extra info about town portal to spell notes page.
This is definitely my last update for 2 weeks.

May 31st, 2002

Created the Bugs page (moved the contents from the Excel workbook, reformatted and reformulated it). Rewrote & reordered a few pieces of the main page.
[evening]Added more bugs. Fixed the link to my local download of Klaravoyia's Writ Fix, and a typo (thanks Klaravoyia).

May 30th, 2002

Moved the funny screenshots to a separate Fun page, added one more (thanks Queen Eriu), and added a list of sight-seens in the game (thanks Lord of Light e.a.).
Added a link to Klaravoyia's Writ Fix (patch page and FAQ entry). Added the LB walk-around for the Dungeon of Secrets to the FAQ (thanks MAN).
[evening]Added the spell mastery page.

May 29th, 2002

Finished the spell notes. (Well, at least I've added some comment about every spell. Hopefully the list will grow with useful tips.) Added the vacation message above.

May 28th, 2002

Continued with the spell notes. Added one score (faster again!), and a new funny screenshot (see the link in the main page) (thanks to Sean Larson).
Removed the note again that I couldn't download Netdanzr's FAQ: the link worked again for me.

May 26th, 2002

Added one or two FAQs, added some bugs and cheats to the Excel sheet. (thanks to Nobody)
Added link to French MM9 site, and links to an MM9 promotion trainer and a file viewer.

May 24th, 2002

Added stylesheet and removed some formatting from the html pages. Added FAQ (artifact attributes). Validated more artifacts (only Brodericks 2H sword & set effects left). Finished with the keybings in the Excel sheet. (still doubting if this warrants a separate html page)
[evening]Rewrote the main page a bit; added embedded stylesheet to the menu; added a new score (the quickest yet).

May 23rd, 2002

Added 2 scores, 1 FAQ (promotion quest mess up), note about Flamestryke's bandwidth and Klaravoyia's index (she likes it), verified more artifacts and added last missing one (yeah); added more bugs and keybindings to the Exel sheet (not available (yet) in html).

May 21st, 2002

Added a NPC page, which was contributed by Queen Eriu; thanks. Added link to Klaravoyia's home (hope (s)he likes it). And several small improvements.

May 20th, 2002

Updated the patch page with patch u3: get it!
Added a tip to the FAQ (at 'screen resolution') to increase the colors in the game (thanks to Greg Wallace), and some 'not disappearing' quests (thanks Steve Church).

May 19th, 2002

Improved the patch page layout (moved spoilers to the end) and added a link to it in the main page. Added a link to Flamestryke's temporary site: see all the new things she added in the last 3 weeks! Added a number of answers to the FAQ.

Improved the format of the tables. Added another persistent quest to the FAQ.

May 10th, 2002

Added one more score, and the 'funny letter' screenshot (link in the main page).
Contemplated that if I add any more 'eye candy', I'll need to rewrite the introduction. This page is becoming more of an html exercise by the minute :)
Added a link to the official Japanese MM9 site.
Added a FAQ entry about 'persistent quests' in the log.

May 9th, 2002

Added Colors to all pages. Please mail me if this causes problems with the visibility of e.g. links for you.
Also fiddled with e.g. settings of the table (in the maps section), and worked some more on compatibility with xhtml.

May 8th, 2002

Added information in the Artifacts page about differences between the description of an artifact, and values you see in the Stats and Skill screens. (e.g. Mjulnir's description promises +60 Might, but the Stats screen shows no might increase after wielding it.)
Started a new page with scores of people who finished the game.

May 4th, 2002

Total redesign of the site with frames, because I was not happy with it's accessibility. And I didn't mind some practice with html either. :)
Added history (reconstructed previous changes). Rewrote the introduction. Added index to the FAQ with hyperlinks to the answers.
Added more artifacts. (comparing to other sites, I seem to miss 6 more. Feel free to mail me missing data.)

May 2nd, 2002

Found a lot more links to MM9 sites, and added them to the links section.
Came to the conclusion that there was little info not already available, so this web page may not see too many extensions anymore.

April 30th, 2002

Completed item attribute list, started with an artifact list (40 or so).
Extended the FAQ.

April 28th, 2002

Created a 'real' web page, an index with a number of hyperlinks.
Added a FAQ (2 whole questions!) and a list of links (2 whole links!).
Extended the data in the workbook with a boat schedule and a start was made with a list of possible item attributes.
Added the Excel workbook itself for download.

April 23th, 2002

Creation of MM9_other.htm, an Excel workbook saved as html.
This first version contained a skills and a promotion list.
