I pulled out my old harpoon97 disk a few days ago. I have the new game "Command" and I would like to use the story line from Interactive Magic's Harpoon Classic 97


I have the following for credit for the scenarios.


This scenario  was created by the following:


Harpoon Rules by Larry Bond
Published by the Game Designers Workshop

Harpoon Classic Scenario Editor for Windows verions 1.55c copyright 11994 by
Applied Computing Services Inc
Portions copyright 1994 by Alliance Interactive Inc.
Published by Alliance Interactive Software Inc


Computer Harpoon design team.
Larry Bond, Don Gilman, Leslie Hill, Becky McGuire,
Mike Jones, Gordon Walton, Rob Brannon, Scott Kronce

Version 1.3 Design and Development team
Mike Steele, Bill Hause, Thom Robertson, Darrel Daring

Windows Version Programmed by John Keene
Windows Help by Jim Masterson

Artwork by Dale and Jimmie Homburg of electric paintbrush and Rick Lenz


I would like to get permission to recreate the Harpoon scenarios for Command and post them on Matrix games Command Forum.


If I have missed anyone please let me know?

There is precedent for getting permission to re-make scenarios (in H3 from HC). I'm not a lawyer but I don't think your credit is yet appropriate. At the very minimum I would suggest contacting Larry Bond and Don Gilman for their blessing and depending upon which scenarios you are re-making, potentially their authors as well (there is information available on individual scenario authors for most of the scenarios that came after the original 4 battlesets). In your HC97 install you'll see them in the additional manuals.

Larry Bond, Chris Carlson, ... AdTrGroup@aol.com
Don Gilman http://www.h3milsim.net/contact-us/or his LinkedIn page or any number of e-mail addresses floating on the InterWebz.

One more note, if you mean the EC2000 storyline it probably isn't worth bothering, we barely got permission for that in the newer HC versions after HC97.

FYI...if anyone is interested in converting any of my old Harpoon scenarios to Command, please feel free to do so.  Just mention me as the original author.  Thanks!
