Did anyone here ever read these books in the 80's?

If you did, and you liked them, let me know. I have the link for you.

Sure, I remember playing those! Pretty old-school, and was one of a few books that I made an effort to read, before the novelty was gone.

Let's see this link...

Project Aon started placing all of the Lone Wolf books online in a downloable html format in 2002. It includes all of the original artwork, and you just point to a link to jump to the correct page. Check it out if you feel like playing the books again without having to pay for them. Some of the later books are collectors' items, so they can be pricey and hard to obtain.

If you do play them again, one word of advice: Download the "base" download first because it will help organize each of the "books" that you download.

Enjoy!

;-D

I'm sure it's a very small audience that would appreciate this, but I have to say that it is really cool that the authors voluntarily donated their distribution rights to that website. They don't make a single penny from the whole thing anymore. You don't see that everyday.

Well, you see it from musicians on occasion. But I do agree, it's rare for an author to take that step. Thumbs up! ;-D

I just wanted to let you guys know that I've been trying that Statkeeper option that's purports the ability to keep track of the game for you while you play.

It doesn't work.

Everytime you switch frames, it resets to its default values. It won't keep track of anything. And the save function is worthless. It says it says it's saved something, but then when you reboot your browser, the save is nowhere to be found. It's not even in the folder on your hard drive.

If anyone uses it and doesn't have any problems, please let me know. I'm on a Mac (browser = Safari), so it could be my browser.
