Game art copied from elsewhere

General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...

Ah, but I'm using firefox....
The strange thing is that all of the images that I could previously see from you in this posting have also gone. Images from other forum members are ok though.

Odd.

Can you see Morkin's images of Balachor's Revenge in this thread? (He also used vgy.me.)

Nope, just the words image image. I can see Dave's graphpaper artwork though.

Oi, that's my graphpaper artwork! :)

It makes even less sense that you can see one, but not the other, as they are both on vgy.me.

To add to the confusion, I can't see R-Tape's images in that thread and they are not on vgy.me.

To add to more confusion, I've fired up the other PC with Windows 7 and Chrome browser and the pictures are there...
The Firefox browser is with XP...

And to add even more confusion to the normal confusion, yes I see your Balachor graphpaper graphic with Win7 + chrome and I also see Dave's graphpaper wonderchars designs (the ones you don't see). And it's snowing outside!

It's my fault - I set the forum's buttock count to a maximum of 3 per post.

Issue with the images is to do with HPKP pinning.
An error occurred during a connection to vgy.me. The server uses key pinning (HPKP) but no trusted certificate chain could be constructed that matches the pinset. Key pinning violations cannot be overridden. Error code: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_KEY_PINNING_FAILURE
see: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/ce ... ng-reports

I've used the report button, in case it's a Firefox issue, but it looks like it's a problem with the website vgy.me screwing it up.

US Gold released Flak in 1984.

One year after, they released Raid Over Moscow. It seems they made the most of the Flak screen to made this:
