Kongming’s Archives – Site Viewer Agreement

You are here: [ Home –> File Agreement ]

Hello, there are a few things that should be known when using this site. I don’t ask much from people but there are a few matters of common courtesy and legality that need to be online. If you plan on doing anything on this or with its contents other than viewing them please read this section. If you plan on linking to any pages other than the main home page or the individual game home pages I kindly request that you also follow the guidelines below.

Linking to our Pages and Files

Please feel free to link to the home page or any of them game pages for Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Dynasty Warriors, or Destiny of an Emperor. If you link to us please send an email so we know, we just like to know these things, it validates the time that has been put into this site and makes us happy (not required, of course). There is one matter of importance; please never link directly to files on this site like downloads or images. All files on this site are very small and easy to download. If you want them to be on your own web page please download them from us and then upload them to your own site. If you do this please also link back to us as a thank you for getting the files (some of the files on this site were very very hard to find). Original work (like the graphics used in the navigation bars) are my personal work, leave them were they are.

If you do decide to link to us from your web page and you happen to use a frameset please remember that it is impolite to open someone else’s web page in your frames. JavaScript will soon be added to this site that prevents it from ever appearing inside a frame (it will instead delete the parent frameset using all space for itself) so this is kind of a moot point. I just thought you would like to know so you can make the HTML on your page as clean and efficient as possible. For those of you that use framesets here is how to open pages outside of the frameset itself. To make the referenced page replace your frameset but stay in the current window add the target="_top" attribute to the <a>…</a> tag. To make the referenced page open in a new browser window leaving yours open behind it add the target="_blank" attribute to the <a>…</a> tag. (If you are not hosting a frameset page and are not planning to like to us just ignore this stuff, you aren’t missing much of anything).

NEVER LINK DIRECTLY TO FILES ON OUR WEB PAGE, MAKE SURE YOU LINK TO THE .HTML PAGE THEY ARE INCLUDED IN INSTEAD (the exception to this rule is avatars, which you may link to from forums that do not allow uploads). IF PEOPLE DISOBEY THIS RULE WE WILL HAVE TO STOP HOSTING THE FILES AND THEN NOBODY WINS. FILE NAMES WILL CHANGE FROM TIME TO TIME AS A PRECAUTION TO BREAK LINKS ON SITES THAT VIOLATE THIS SIMPLE REQUEST.

Downloads

Again the rules are simple. You may not download a ROM file or video game unless you already own the physical game itself. Rot3K Graphics and Web Design assumes no liability should you find yourself in trouble after breaking the law. Other than that please grab what you like and enjoy yourself, pass the word if you like this site. Rot3K Graphics and Web Design also assumes no liability if any files on this site damage your computer or other software in any way and for that matter neither does Koei or Capcom. Use all files on this site at your own risk. Yes, they have all been tested and work just fine on our own machines.

Requests

Yes, we do accept requests for files and items, but please do not be upset if we do not come across them. We are very busy and do not really have much time to browse the Internet for little odds and ends. To request something please send an email.

Contributions

We also accept and encourage contributions. We will also host your walkthroughs and guides, all you have to do is request. We always give people that contribute full credit for their work and never try to assume any sort of copyright over it. If you have a file, guide, codes, images, walkthroughs, etc. that you would like us to host here please contact us via emal with the details. We will not host anything of questionable legality and if there is ever any sort of copyright dispute brought before us (by another author or company, it makes no difference) we will either side with whomever we believe or, if there is no clearly honest party, we will remove the questionable files from our site completely until the involved parties can come to an agreement. We feel this is the fair thing to do when confronting issues like this.

A link to your page on our site…

Will we link to your page on our site? That depends. If your site deals with the same thing ours does then you bet we will! Even if you are just starting out with web development and design we will welcome you to our links page. If you site does not have anything to do with Romance of the Three Kingdoms and related games / issues we will not link to you. Also, if your site has information on Chinese history, culture, literature, etc. please do ask as we will link to you as well (anything that provides our viewers with material they may be interested in). A final note, before linking to you we will check your site for legality and Net etiquette. If we find illegal content on your site or if it violates simple rules of Internet kindness (file leeching, copyright, etc.) we will have nothing to do with you. :)

Your ad on our web page…

For now the answer is simple, no ads. We think that ads are destroying the Internet and we are very sad to watch it happen. We are also very very hateful toward pop-up and flashing ads. :(

There is an exception. If you have a Romance of the Three Kingdoms related site (that means it is the sort of site we would link to) and you would like to advertise here we may be able to work something out (funding is never bad, we just happen to hate ads). Just so you know in advance we will never accept anything that distracts viewers for the content on this site or makes their visit a depressing occurrence. No violent flashing and absolutely no pop-up windows. You must also have a clearly written and honest privacy policy that shows you care for your viewers. You may thinking right now, “those goons, they will never have an ad on their site if they expect that from people.” Well… Well… we won’t shed any tears if that is true. ;)

We will accept site buttons for pages that we link to. What matters to us is the culture and the history, the characters and the story. We will gladly add a link graphic from your site (to the links page) if you like the same things we do.

Everything Else?

I can’t cover everything I would like you to know on this page, but if there is any doubt don’t hesitate to ask. We would rather you contacted us to find out directly rather than simply assume, possibly leading to a mistake.
