Speaking of Wikipedia, this site could use an official players guide for the game! I know several guides have been posted around (courtesy of Teucer, Hawk, Suprax, Kallahar), but nothing uber-official. Most of the discovery of the game has been revealed, so any spoilers and secrets would be minimal. If anything, it'd be curious reading to those who used to play (or still play today). I'll see what I can fashion up on here, if it's doable with this software.

Stumbled onto this site. Could be a good template:

I haven't seen Hawks Faq posted anywhere in years.  I think its lost to time. It wasn't up to date,  as I believe he missed the last two versions anyways. He has been AWOL a long time ;(
 
  Teucer and Heathkit's Faq is still can be found on  Kallahar's place. http://kallahar.com/software/ooii_faq/
That was written in 99'. Its pretty detailed with *very* few errors. Last time I looked thru it I recalled a few things it doesn't mention. I'm sure there may be a few things other players have figured out along the way that aren't there either. But that said, I doubt there is much missed.  It was very through.
 
 To find the OOterm programs as well as a couple of other OOII related programs http://www.ziskind.com/bbs-door-games-operation-overkill-ii.asp is the place to visit.
 
   I once wrote a Faq back in the day for team play. I based it off Hawks faq, but added in all sorts of stuff for the folks on my tournament team.  I lost that to a HD crash long ago.  Be cool to read it now <grin> Too bad Dusty here hasn't been bribeable to create the next version of OOII. NOw that would be cool...

I have an FAQ I created a while back.  I thought I posted it on here somewhere.  There are some bugs in the game that I mentioned too.  If interested I can see if I still have it on my hard drive and send it to you or post.

 I wouldn't mind seeing that DG. If you posted it here earlier, I probably read it. I am curious about the bugs part. I refuse to use bugs, but I like to understand what they do. Now and then I see someone that I can't see how they got to where they are game-timeline wise. I realize they could just be a better player than myself.... ow that hurt to say.  But in hearing others experiences in the game I'm always up to learn.
