Epic Duels Dot Com FAQ
The Navigation bar along the top contains links to the "community" pages. Chat takes you to the Chat room, Forum takes you to the Forums, etc.Downloads is organized like a file browsing program (you must be registered to view/download). Users is a list of all the registered users on the site; you can use this page to track what content a user has contributed, send message, and other stuff. Links is a directory of other Epic Duels related sites on the net; feel free to add your own. Search allows you to search all the text portions of the site (sorry, for now it doesn't include images or files).
The User Control Panel at the right contains the "user" pages. The Add Content sections allow you to add a new piece of content of that type: Use your Blog to share your Epic Duels material with the community, use the Forum to request feedback from the community, use Polls for whatever you want. The My Account page allows you to set up your Profile (so other users can know a little something about you), edit your settings and send/receive messages.
One last note: Just about all the fields in which you can enter text will recognize certain html tags, so even if the rich-text editor buttons aren't available, you can still do things like add links and format your text.
Only logged-in users can access the Dowloads (and file attachments) features of Epic Duels.com. To attach a file to your forum post or blog entry, open the WebFM Attachments menu below the text-entry window of the New Entry/Post window. If the file you want to attach is already uploaded, just navigate to the file, right-click, and select Attach to Node from the menu. If the file you want is not yet uploaded, open the File Upload menu that appears after you open the WebFM attachments menu.
You heard right. Currently, the only known way of playing Epic Duels online is through the VASSAL engine, a free, cross-platform program for playing games online. You need both VASSAL and the Star Wars: Epic Duels module. The program will connect to a free server, on which you might run into other players of the game.
For more reliable player contact, as well as organized competitive (friendly) play and tournaments, visit the EDOL, a Yahoo group devoted to exactly that.
In early 2009, the epicduels.com domain was purchased from a private owner and converted to a resource for the fan community. Files and articles on that site were not saved, though you can contact the previous owner with any requests.
