Help


Actually Help section is a little wrong because of the use
of a software running on PC. Moreover, the site is no longer active.

Why still a site of play by mail for Full Metal Planet ?
Access not to depend on the use of a generic software like
Cyberboard, used on the Sector Ludodeliria of the Cross Games.
Then to allow to see on line the integrality of a FMP battle,
with the changes of tides, the displacements and the fight.
Finally it was the way for me to become hardened with the development
in Javascript and Php to create dynamic, animated and sound pages.
The results are illustrated in the photos galery.
