Bill's Game page

There is a lot I'd like to put in here, but somehow I don't think I'll have time.

I decided I had time to make the Cyberboard color palette for phototshop available though -

Here's the original reason I made this page:

Bill's Cyberboard Utilities (BCU)

I have written a couple of utilities to make creating cyberboard game sets easier, and plan to write a few more.  So far, these utilities are poorly tested, completed unsupported, and without documentation.  It is not likely that this will change.  USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

These are win32 command-line utilities.  They should work under Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000 but I haven't tested them.  They were quickly written to support 24-bit Windows BMP files only.  I doubt that I will include support for other bitmap types, so you will have to convert your bitmaps before using them.

There are four programs - scntobmp.exe, bmptogtl.exe, annotate.exe, and gtltobmp.exe - described in the readme.txt   and zipped up in: (92k, pkzipw 2.5).

That's all I have time for right now.  If this becomes even modestly popular I may add some additional features, but don't hold your breath.

My Cyberboard gamesets.  I've created several Cyberboard gamesets, mostly for games from the Gamers (now MMP).  I plan to make them available from this web page at some point in the future.

Here's the list -

SCS Crusader - available from Yankee Air Pirates
SCS Gazala - available from Yankee Air Pirates
SCS Drive on Paris - available from Yankee Air Pirates
OCS Hube's Pocket
OCS Enemy at the Gates
TCS Semper Fi (incomplete)

As you can see from above, I like several of the Gamers SCS games, so I've decided to compile Q & A for some of them. This is drawn mostly from Consimworld.
