I wasn't intending to talk down to you, Rayo. :oops: I'm used to dealing with people who have little computer experience, so I try to make my explanations simple and without a lot of computer jargon.

For the DF userbar, I'll pass it by you first. Here is the link to my post on CBT: http://www.classicbattletech.com/forums ... 317450#new so you can check it out.

No offense taken whatsoever, mate :wink:

I am one of those people who needs clear explanations, so you were spot on. I've checked out your link on CBT too.

By the way, you cracked post 400 on this thread. 8) 8) Congratulations :D

Cheers

Rayo,

Here is what Notsonoble over on CBT came up with. Overall I think it's pretty good.

You can let me know what you think or go straight to the source and let him know.

Okay, I have a reasonably clean version of The Awakening near completion and will be looking to post it when I can next week.

For Artwork right now, I'm thinking of just putting the DF Logo on the cover page, as we have nothing else to date. We can change it later, I suppose :?

I'll let you know how I get on posting it :oops:

Cheers

Rayo

There is some unknown problem giving me fits. I had no trouble adding Zac's Redstars, but the Dark Falcon logo is refusing to show....still working on it.

No worries. Now I've got an x for the image, so we must be nearly there :wink:

Blackhawk,

I know sooner or later you'll figure it out. :D All I ask is that you post a notice so that I may also sign up. Thanks!

An image now shows as being there, but with the x on it as though it's not registering on my PC.

Thanks for all your efforts.

Clean .PDF file almost available, barring final artwork of course.

How do I upload it when it's finished?

Remember, I'm not computer friendly :oops:

The edited, clean version is now complete. Found quite a few typos :oops:

Will they close this thread if I post the PDF? :cry:

Would be nice to hit 10000 views :D

The number of views contines to rise, but with no comments. I was wondering,as I have restarted posting this on CBT whether it is viewers from there or whether people are just re-reading?

If so, remember there is the option to PM me and I am willing to send you a clean .PDF version :wink:

Cheers
