Well, I've done it. I've reskinned pretty much all the original good faction heroes (I, unfortunately, couldn't get Aragorn's Fellowship and Helm's Deep outfits finished for the update) plus Saruman. This update includes (from left to right) Black Gate Aragorn, Boromir, Gandalf the Grey, Dernhelm/Eowyn, Faramir, and Saruman, as well as a bunch of screenshots on this revamped content. As a note, Faramir's mounted model is based off his Prince of Ithilien/Coronation outfit, rather than his standard battle armour.
I didn't bother doing captions this time around, as everything is pretty self explanatory.
In other news, I have set up an IRC channel for The Elven Alliance. For those who don't know what IRC is, it's basically a series of chatrooms (channels) in which you can talk about any number of things. To use IRC, you will need a client. There are a number of these available on the net, and the one I use is called mIRC. Installation is quite easy and any problems can probably solved on the mIRC site above. Here is a quick post by Blaat on how to connect to The Elven Alliance IRC channel:
Connect to the server by typing: /server main.acidchat.net in the window that opens on start up.
"After this you will have to choose a nickname. A nickname isn't 'yours' in that you don't need to register for one (although you can if you want, using the /nickserv command). You can just change nicknames without trouble (to change your nick name, type /nick and then the name you want to use). When you have it all ready you can connect to an IRC server. You'll get some text from the server and a text box. This box is where you type your text, but IRC also offers a lot of commands that you can use to do other interesting stuff.
One such command is the /join command (IRC commands always start with a slash) which lets you join a channel." To join the Elven Alliance channel type: /join #elvenalliance and you're all set!
*Forum Note: Can't click this here. Either copy and paste the address in a new window, or click it from the main site.
I strongly encourage you to use the chatroom, especially for idle chatter and to set up online games. And even if there isn't anyone active in the channel, I ask that you leave the channel open so that you're around for when somebody does come by. This attempt to make your lives just a little easier can only succeed with your participation.
