It was easy to do back in the day. I'm unsure if I just assumed the links would last forever or that the work would be done and forgotten before they did. Either way mistakes were made.
That's rather unfortunate. I recall that I had an imagehack for my first two collapsed AARs, and they definitely did not bear up to the intent.

But I did still lose all the pictures from the first half of Furious Vengeance and that was a blow, particularly when it was the only AAR I'd ever finished.
Do you have a link for that?

While this is obviously true, the picture I've found of Sarrat for Chapter XVII is quite spicy. It's from his Governor of Indochina phase and it is a very bold look he is rocking.
I was expecting something... different.

I've got to a chapter with some maps in and, while I have the originals, they are a bit rough even by my own average-ish standards (I am no @roverS3 or @Wraith11B when it comes to such graphics! :) ). I'm fighting the temptation to redo them, because while I do like a nice bit of map making, to do so would lead me down the dark path towards doing Redux. So I am resisting for now and trying to work on an actual new update.
I appreciate the compliment, and say that if you'd like some help I'd be happy to oblige... though I must also admit that I'm no roverS3, either... that said, I'm working on getting through June 1944!

And trains.
I have many train photos from when there still was a railway in my birth town. Fortunately for the Romantics, the line ended before the steam engine so they can feel free to walk over the unsullied memories forever.

Might sneak it in end of 1937. The King's Alternative Christmas Message.
I'll drink to that!

An update in our time!
Unfortunate phrasing there...

Resist the temptation to redo what you've already done... again... it can remain the way it is as it's not a testament of who you are now, but of who you were when you published it. If anything, it can provide contrast and context, showing how you have improved your craft over the years. Maybe finish the AAR before you start on a second round of retroactive improvements? Who am I kidding. Just do what feels right to you, and I'm sure we'll enjoy it regardless. Also thanks for the compliment, it is much appreciated.

I appreciate the compliment, and say that if you'd like some help I'd be happy to oblige... though I must also admit that I'm no roverS3, either... that said, I'm working on getting through June 1944!
@El Pip I'd be happy to help you out with the maps, especially if it would help you get the next update out sooner. Don't hesitate to send me a pm if I can be of assistance.
@Wraith11B Have fun playing. I've managed to get some things in order these last few days, and I'll be playing on to the 10th of September 1942 tomorrow, if all goes well.
