INTRODUCTION

After a few delays and some changes in staff, the newsletter is up
and running again!

We have a new collection of player profiles this month, and we have
our first Flag Contest of 2005. Check the "Artifact News" section
below for more information.

This month, Blackwidow Mike gives players a chart to help with
improving facilities and Misty explains how to get the In Game Help
to reappear.


Thank you for playing and supporting Artifact!

This is to announce a new Artifact Player Flag Contest!

You may have noticed the "blank" flags when you edit your flag. This
is your chance to help turn those into something meaningful. =)

Contest Rules:

2. Each flag must have a 1-pixel black border.
3. Flag patterns will limited to 3 colors (this does not include the
black border). Any 3 colors may be used for the contest.
4. There will be 2 categories of flag: "Abstract" and "Object".
Abstract flags are patterns that do not necessarily represent
anything. Object flags are patterns that represent an item, such as a
wolf's head or a skull.
5. There will be 1 Grand Prize, which could be from either category,
and a 1st & 2nd prize from each category. The winning flags will be
added to the game, with credit given in the help file.
6. Prizes: The Grand Prize winner will receive their choice of 3
months of Full
Access, citizenship, or a citizenship level upgrade.. The 1st & 2nd
Prize winners in each category will each
receive 1 month of Full Access.
7. A player can submit up to 3 patterns for the contest. The player
must indicate the category (abstract or object) of each submitted
flag.
8. No player serving as a judge for the contest may submit a flag for
the contest.

TIP: In Game Help
by Misty

A lot of players, the first thing they ask is "How do I get rid of
the In Game Help?". Other players are kind enough to tell them how
to look at the lower left hand side of the game screen and
uncheck "show help." However, how do you get the In Game Help back?
If you select "Show Help" again, you only get lobby help, and it does
not show in the game. What you need to do is go up to Options,
Player Client Options, Main Map Tab, and check "Show Help Shortcuts",
hit apply, then if you are in a game, relog into it. If you aren't
already in a game, then it will simply show up when you go in one.
That's all there is to it!
