MMPC Website v4.0
Site news, by Dr. Cossack on 24 April 2002 at 22:35

Welcome everyone to the NEW Mega Man PC Website: Dr. Cossack's lab! I am pleased to show you the latest version of the site. While each of the previous versions still retained a large part of the original coding, v4.0 was almost created from scratch. The extended use of CSS and PHP will allow me to customize the layout much faster from now on, and I made everything more compliant to the W3.org standards.

Compatibility
The new layout has been tested with several web browsers, on two different computers with different resolutions. The site is better viewed with:

  • Internet Explorer 5.5 or 6, or Nescape 6
  • Resolution of 800x600 or 1024x768
  • JavaScript enabled

Some pages are looking horrible when viewed through Netscape Communicator 4.7. That's because N4.7 has a very poor CSS support, and I don't recommend it to surf here. The design might have a few changes here and there, but consider it mostly complete. Note that there might be deadlinks on the site. Please do not e-mail me about them, they'll all be fixed eventually. On a side note, the animated mets in the menu will return when most sections will be back online.

Return of sections
Now that I have made this major step, I can begin working on bringing the material back online. I've been working on the Music Archive and the MMBN Info sections, and they should be back online this weekend (yeah, the weekend again...).

Oekaki Board
You can read the full details about that one on the temporary Oekaki page. Basically, it will stay down until I'm done creating the new board, which won't happen before the middle of May AT LEAST.

Affiliates
While I didn't really checked the latest affiliation requests I got yet, I've updated the list with the addition of Brave Robot, a site replacing the new defunct Arctic Freeze. (Happy yet, Fencer? ;-) )

I also added on the right column a new sub-section: Support Mega Man. Several fans want to help the Mega Man comminity, but they don't really know what to do. This section will be used to provide links to sites where people can make an effort to promote / support the Blue Bomber. The Mega Man Manga Petition that has been running for a while is still there, with a new link to the Mega Manifesto. This petition, created by Reeve, is a call to all major gaming sites / reviewers to consider the Mega Man games fairly, without always complaining about "it's the same old thing".

I'll try to catch up with e-mails this weekend. I hope that you are pleased with this now :-)
