Doug, I recall mention of a FaceBook community on the Cover Me! ad on TMP, but have been unable to find it. If there is a community would you please direct me to it? Thanks!

Thanks Doug, I tried the address and all I get is a warning the link to the page isn't available -- the link may be broken or the page has been removed.

I find the rules to be very good and interesting and I look forward to getting this to the table very soon.

Hi Steve, not sure why the FB link isn't working for you. Try doing a group search on FB for "Stars and Crosses".
Glad you're liking the rules so far!

Hi Doug. Could you please add a cover page and table of contents? I love that you have an index but this would be great to add those two things. Thanks.

Hi Gene, I don't usually include a cover page on a PDF because most folks just skip printing it to save ink. And I felt the book was too short for a TOC. I'll see what I can do.

Hi Gene, I just added a Table of Contents file and an image of the cover art, they should download automatically to your library but let me know if they don't. Good suggestions!

Awesome! Thanks. I love in the ruleset you give great visual examples. I'm a visual learner.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
