Seemingly, it also fixes

Archivist's Update: Dec 1, 2022

The BaK Help Web now has a permanent home at Dimwood.net. This site will exist until the current archivist dies, and another takes over his place. Let the memory of Professor Björnsson live on eternally. You can contact your very much happy to be alive archivist vga256, by e-mailing: vga [@/at] vga256.com with any questions or comments about the site :) You can also find me on mastodon here.

Archivist's Note: October 17, 2020
This site was archived by Links in 2011 before it disappeared from the web when the author's university web server closed the account it was hosted on. As this site has been gone for years, and there is no way of contacting the original author for permission, it is being hosted here until such a day that the author can claim it or provide explicit permission for it being re-hosted. Don't bother trying to e-mail the author via the links on these pages, as that e-mail address is long gone!

The Webmaster thanks various contacts at SIERRA, who like this Website, and do not object to any text or graphic contained herein.

The Webmaster has also been contacted by various people who were instrumental in creating the game, including the producer, the writer, and one of the main programmers. They all like the BAK Help Web, and have no objections to the Webmaster's use of any material, textual or graphic, copied from the game and used in these pages.

Apart from obvious quotations from the game itself, all text in this Website is written by and is the intellectual property of the Webmaster. The same applies to his manipulations of the game's graphics. If you intend to use the contents of this Website for some other purpose than viewing them directly via your browser, please observe the following:

1. You are quite welcome to download any or all parts of the Website on to your personal computer, for private use.

2. You are more than welcome to place a link to the BAK Help Web on your own Website, but only to the Front Page (krondor.html), not to any other pages in the Web. The Webmaster would be glad to learn of any such links. If your Website is BAK-related, contains material not already contained in the BAK Help Web, and conforms to standards acceptable to the Webmaster, it will be included in the LINKS page, if you wish.

3. If you copy material from this Website, be it text, html-code or graphics, and redistribute it in any manner without permission from the Webmaster, this will be considered a copyright infringement. Should the Webmaster become aware of any such infringement, a warning will be issued. If the warning is disregarded, a complaint will be made to your provider.

Please take this seriously. Only one such warning has been issued to date. It was ignored, so the provider had to be contacted. The website in question was subsequently deleted by the provider. While the Webmaster does not like drastic measures, they are (unfortunately) necessary in such cases. Plagiarism is equivalent to Theft.
