Hi everyone. I have added a Tactics
page for those who need that little bit extra on the knowledge base. Thanks go to Jet
, Hardlight Productions
and our constant source of information - Parias.
Thursday, August 02, 2001
Whoa, the information is coming in thick and fast! So much so I can't keep up with it. We've an update on the tactics page - sorry guys I know I could be more organised and tell you where - but you'll just have to read it again
Later, you can expect an update to the FAQ page. Hey! and spare a thought for the editor, who has to go and get his brain washed, so he can still enjoy the game - Ah.
Friday, August 03, 2001
OK, I'm managing to keep fairly ahead of all the input I'm receiving. We have a Ships Loadout
page contributed by Jet
- thanks mate.
We also have a new edition to the forum section Edge of Chaos - OnLine. Started up by FAMS of SoL Industries.
My heads spinning sorting the FAQ stuff out - bear with on this one.

I'm just on my way down to the pub, but before I go a quick update. The tactics page has a few more additions plus there is now a Weapons Behaviour
page - data contributed by Jet
I've noted a lot of visits here but not to sub pages. This could mean it doesn't help you or the navigation to the sub pages are not clear. Just to let you know that any pages you come across here, if there are further pages on the same subject, they can be accessed from the listing on the extreme right under the archives label.
Please let me know if you think anything on this site could be improved on usability or content. I'll action if I get enough emails on a particular subject. Unless of course it's blatantly obvious it's an issue. Cheers!
We finally have our Ships Database
up and running. In it you'll find all the details of known ships of the EoC universe. I hope you will find it of use.
Later a weapons database will link to the ships database extending our knowledge further. I shall also be putting up a weapons table under the loadout section courtesy of our man Jet. So expect to see more changes over the coming days.
Have a nice weekend!

The Weapons Behaviour Section
has been updated and has been moved to the Ships Loadout section. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Monday, August 06, 2001
For those of you who are new to the I War concept, and would like a brief history lesson; pop on over to SoL Industries
. They've put together a seven minute audio collage in MP3 format on I War history past and present. Hey! Even you people who've "been there, done it" might like to know why you're out there now.

Hi all! It's been a little quiet these past few days. I'm working on the Ships Loadout Weapons Behaviour section, adding some more data. After reading some of this stuff, you do begin to realise just how complex this game is. Some of this stuff is beginning to get betond me - but it's fun figuring it all out :)
Le Corps des Lions have launched their site and are now really pushing for recruitment. They're keeping a few Alliances and Battlegroups waiting and want to oblige the challenge. I've signed up.
Monday, August 13, 2001
We have added a few more links under the forums and modders section. And speaking of modders, a page dedicated to modders will be up in a few days. There's a lot of keen enthusiasts tinkling with the workings of EoC to bring a little something special to our lives.
Some are working on useful additions, some are fixing those niggly things we all know about, and some are just doing the "what if I did this" approach. Either way it will be educational and fun - and not necessarily in that order.
I've added some more downloads. Some German ones filched (a fine old english word) from Infogrames Germany. There's also a multi-play mod from PuG - says he doesn't want the credit - er watch this one when you run it. As always, take care when installing these programs.

Hi, a quick note to let you know the Act section
now has the completed Act 3 walkthrough.
Wednesday, August 15, 2001
NEWS: Edge of Chaos went gold in America yesterday with an expected release date of August 25th. Hang on in there!
Saturday, August 18, 2001
OK, we have a new addition to the Tactics
section. Headlined Fighting Manouvres
, it's a collection put together by the ina community
instigated by Lorque
. This lot are a mad bunch who have perfected certain manouvres for getting themselves out of trouble (or into, depending on your view). I don't know if these methods work (I haven't tried) but they sure look like fun trying. Lorque has is own site
I've added a few more items to the FAQ. That's it, there will be more to come. On a last note: the American visits have really dropped (I mean from 200 per day to 3). I guess they're getting really nervous with that imminent arrival. Come back when you need help or visit the many forums.
On the other side, we have a lot of other international visitors, peoples from 70 countries so far. Thanks for the patronage.
Hi all, again it would seem British Telecom and my powerless web hosting company have conspired to frustrate. The system was down for most of yesterday. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Hello all, not much happening today. A bit of tidying up here and there. The last missions in Act 3 had a few confusing typos, these have been corrected. Also the last mission didn't give the full picture - this has been re-edited - thanks to UnheardOf.
Should anyone else see something glaringly wrong, please let me know, and I'll get it sorted.
Tuesday, August 21, 2001
We have a further addition to the Tactics
page. Called the Combat Guide
, it is a detailed article on the methods of combat in EoC. Reproduced with the kind permission of Vincent Formosa
of Particle Systems
Hi, A German unofficial FAQ / Walkthrough is available now from the downloads
page. It includes a complete walkthrough, flight and battle tactics and other goodies.
For all German Edge of Chaos players and beginners, this should solve most of their problems with Particle Systems' Edge of Chaos.
Currently including a detailed walkthrough, advanced flight and battle tactics and other gameplay/technical topics. Everything packed together into a nice 47kb, zipped download.

: Edge of Chaos Online
. A revolutionary way of playing online is soon to come to fruition. Oh dear, oh dear. It was that good, it took a great deal of self discipline, not to "let it out of the bag". But, now it's official. Go to Edge of Chaos News
for the latest on this story.
Thursday, August 23, 2001
: Edge of Chaos is now on sale in the USA and Canada. Have fun!

Players join a faction, pilot a ship and engage in combat with the other factions, with the ultimate aim of taking over the entire cluster. It will be completely FREE to play and will be accessed via the www.edgeofchaos.net site.
EOC Online is a joint venture between Infogrames, Particle Systems, and The Vision Studios.
Other items: There has been an addition to the Manouvres page. That's all!

A couple of days peace and quiet? Not really. Your's truly, was at the Reading Music Festival all day Friday and recovering all day Saturday. A great time had by all!
Anyways, not too much happening on the EoC front. The ina forum is filling up with newbies from the States and Canada - some of them mighty frustrated at that - all fresh with their new copies of the game, needing plenty of help and getting it.
For those visiting the Acts section here, I have put together an Acts Objectives Snapshot. This basically, skips all the descriptive elements and provides the objectives for each mission only. I thought this would be useful for those who just need to know what it is they need to do and complete.
Some stuff coming up soon on pirating and trade.
Tuesday, August 28, 2001
The new FAQ section
is now up and running. Separated into three areas; Missions, General and Technical, so you can target your queries with a little more efficiency.
There are still missions that need answering. I shall endeavour to get these up as quickly as they arrive. I hope you enjoy the improvement.
: EOC Online, the multiuser web based tactical space combat game is online at 3pm GMT today. The link to EOC Online is already available on the front page of www.edgeofchaos.net
Registration will not be available until 3pm GMT today, but you can browse the site and view info about the game before then.
The FAQ section is undergoing a major reorganisation and will be up some time today.

Hi all! I know it appears we've been a little quiet here, but in truth there's so much to go up it's taking time. You wouldn't want me to rush things and get it all wrong (which has happened in the past). So, no revelation stuff, but we have updated the weapons loadout
There's a new quick reference covering weapons half-range damage. The weapons tables now include an armour penetration section. And I have re-organised the page as it was getting a bit busy and hard to follow. Thanks again go to Jet for keeping this going.
