11/21/2007: Just a message that I haven't disappeared, but
have not much time to maintain this site. In a few weeks I will start
rebuilding this site in TWiki, which works like Wikipedia.
Then I will dump all my stuff in a protected area and you are then free
to expand my site and also add your own things. Of course, you still
need my approval, because otherwise it will become a mess if hateful
people start to turn my site topsy-turvy. I will try to keep the
lay-out as close to the current lay-out as possible. Keep "tuned"!
09/03/2007: Someone contacted me with a question which I
cannot answer. He is from the Netherlands and has bought a Super
Boulder Dash disk. On side 1 there is Boulder Dash I and on side 2
there is Boulder Dash II.Loading goes well at first, but then it keeps
loading at the EA logo. He has already asked for and received a
substitute, but the problem remains. Now, what could have to do with
this? Is it because of the difference between the USA and Europe, which
may have different disks? Or has it got to do with NTSC or PAL? Will
you please contact me if you can help him a bit? Thanks in advance!
