  1. "Emperor of Madeira" is out...

    Man, I started writing this book nine months ago! It was submitted to the publisher a few days before that happened in Madeira! How could I know? Sorry if it hurt you in any way! The plot is excellent though! I'm selling one or two per day! Don't think that I'm getting rich though! I only get $ 1.38 USD per book sold! LOL! Hmmm... why not?!
  2. To the French

    Thank you very much. We appreciate your support and concern.
  3. "Emperor of Madeira" is out...

    Thanks for the suggestion! I'll think about it! Why not? Do you have his adress?!
  4. "Emperor of Madeira" is out...

    I know. My book is inspired on him. Besides, I'm actually Portuguese. But of course, the Madeirense rebels do get some "muscled" means and so do the mercs! Yeah! There is even action featuring the President of Brazil in my book!

  6. "Emperor of Madeira" is out...

    My Dear Friends, Nine months after my first book "Mercenary of the Seas" (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1448677254/sr=1-7/qid=1268483930/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&qid=1268483930&sr=1-7&seller= was out, I've finsihed at published the 554-page sequel "Emperor of Madeira", which you can find here: http://www.amazon.com/Emperor-Madeira-second-book-Mercenary/dp/1451529473/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1268474740&sr=8-1 This time the action will take us to the paradise island of Madeira. Mike Sanders and his band of mercenaries return to help the small island paradise of Madeira to gain its independence from the Portuguese Republic. Or are Sanders International actually playing into a plot by the C.I.A. that would see the European Union destroyed from within? Just a few words to thank "Combatace" for their support by letting me talk about my books here. Although I can't live yet on my books, it's a very passionate activity for me! For your information, Mercenary of the Seas has been sold up to almost 600 copies. I hope that Emperor of Madeira will have a better success! Until then, have a good one guys and... good hunting! Mario Paz

    Hahhaha! Fera the mighty "Spanish Galactic Empire"! It's there! It is out on the newspapers this morning: http://www.ouest-france.fr/actu/actuLocale_-Etables-sur-Mer_22055_actuLocale.Htm? The article is locked. Unless you can wait 24 hours to read it (or buy the paper...), you should be able to read the article tomorrow, from 00h01. The paper version of the newspaper sells for € 0.80 Euros. I don't know how much the "Internet" version costs - but it is out! I will post about the complete article once it becomes unlocked by tomorrow. Good reading! It's there!

    That's exactly why you should read the book, once it comes out (perhaps near or after this christmas!). I can guarantee you that no Ronaldos have been hurt during the making of this book... Believe me, there is nothing more important for the Madeirenses than their island! Although they'd probably hire mercenaries to rescue Ronaldo if he was "held against his will" on continental Portugal.
  12. I hardly doubt that there's anywone more difficult to contempt than I, as far as Thirdwire MP games are concerned. For one, I'm not a "network engineer" nor am I professionally related to the Internet (even if I worked as a websmaster years ago...). For me, multiplayer has to be simple: you click on a button to join or host. That has to be it! I don't want or care about complex firewall/port settings to fine tune multiplayer for thirdiwre games. Today, a Greek friend of mine - Alko Click - most unexpectedly gave me the solution for this problem. He told me about "open leaf" - a "connecting softawre" which allows all games to conenct, just as when every computer is on a LAN (every computer physically conencted to each other...) network. I have tried this today using a combined WOV/WOE patched to the october 2008 "latest patch" and to my greatest satisfaction, it worked properly! I will now host games using Openleaf. I sugegst that you download it here: http://www.leafnetworks.net/download.html All you have to do is register and add me to your network (Diabolico_77th). Then it works like this: 1) All players launch and log in to Openleaf. 2) Both players launch their game and click on the MP game. Wait and let it do its thing. 3) Once it stops looking for a network game, the person wishing to become the host clocks on the game's host tab. 4) The persons wishing to join just have to hit refresh until the host game appears on the list. Then all you have to do is to click join and you're done. I personally found it a lot easier to use and configure than the latest versions of Hamachi. I urge those of you wishing to play MP games on the list below: - WOV/WOE mixed install; - WOI; - SFP1 Gold (or SFP1 as I will add the C-130...); - A future mixed install of all the above mentioned games. ... to download and install openleaf. I can be joined on MSN (misterm73 at hotmail dot com). I'm mostly invisible but will most likely answer any sollicitations for Thirdwire games MP. That is all.

    Although it's written in English, interest in my work and myself has "sparkled" on the national press. I have been interviewed by one of the local reporters of Ouest France - the third most read newspaper in the country. Of course, this is not "the first page" but it's very encouraging to have the press get interested on my work - especially considering that it is a "disappearing genre" - just like the flight sims. I think I'll be on the news on tuesday. For those not living in France, the article will also be available (in French) on their website: Ouest France I will keep you posted.

    Thank you very much for your support. Your words are very "heart-warming"! Thanks to Sony Tuckson, a French version may soon see the day. He offered to help me by translating the book from English to French free of charge. This generosity could not pass unnoticed or "unsung". Thank you Sony for helping me making this book available to the French Speaking persons. Thank you very much for your benevolence and help. Like the flightsim genre, the "geopolitical thriller" is a "dying genre" and anything we can do "to offer people what they like to read" - this regardless of any economical interests - is avery good thing. Otherwise, here's a preview of the cover for my next book - "Emperor of Madeira" - the sequel and second book of the "Mercenary of the Seas" saga of my authoring. What do you think of all this? ;-)
