Major reworking of my Ultima Underworld Walkthrough
« on: October 09, 2017, 03:29:38 PM »

After the release of my Ultima Underworld 2 walkthrough I wasn't satisfied with my Ultima Underworld 1 walkthrough any longer. The Ultima Underworld 2 walkthrough has bigger pictures which one can invoke from the different maps. And these pictures are shown more centred. The Underworld 1 walkthrough had smaller pictures which appeared in the upper left corner of the browser.
 Therefore I decided to make a major reworking of the Underworld 1 walkthrough. I resized 209 pictures and movies, changed 20 pages for the new resolution and corrected some errors. I also added some new screenshots and movies.
 The reworking of my walkthrough is dedicated to Optician Dragon / Mark Morris who passed away in 2012. Optician was my main proofreader back in the days when I created this walkthrough the first time. Rest in peace my friend - see ya on the funway!

Very nice!

I haven't gone all the way through it, but a couple of suggestions:

1. As someone who's played UW1 quite a few times, I recognized when the Introduction cutscene started looping... but someone who's new to this game might be confused by that.

2. At the bottom of each page, you provide a way to mute or lower the volume of the music that plays. This is nice, but even nicer might be to give your visitors a clear option at the top of the very first page of whether they want music to play at all.

One other possibility might be a page dedicated to the Easter eggs and in-jokes in the game. Overall, though, you've done an excellent job of providing the information that a new player of UW could want. I particularly like the Must Do / Should Do / Can Do sections.

Thank you so much for your work! I'm a happy customer ;)

Also, condolences for your friend Optician Dragon / Mark Morris. I know what it feels to lose someone who you respect and care for.
