Selected Strife Contents

StrifeTitleClassic.jpg StrifeTitle_LockStock.gif

NOTE: I was not the host of the original Strife websites, nor I was directly involved with these in other ways (apart from reading contents or so).
The reason I emphasize this is that, admittedly, it can be easy to miss it.

Table of contents


Welcome to the "Selected Strife Contents" section! Here you should find a (very) partial backup of contents from the various Strife websites over the times (and a little more): This Strife, That Strife (actually This Strife under a different name and domain) and Strife Strips!
Note that quite often, the term "Selected" hides a bit of a different meaning: "Found" or "Rescued". That's because, in general, if I post only some contents out of a specific set (e.g. comics), it means that not everything has been found by me.
Furthermore, contents of a blog maintained by Peter Bridger (Maverick) and known as Strife Streams aren't discussed here for now. Well, mostly. See the news post of April 8th, 2012 to figure out why.

Thanks shall be sent to Peter Bridger (aka Maverick), Andrew Kepple (aka Sluggy), Paul J. Smith (aka Wally Waffles) and probably more. In addition, thanks should be sent to the Internet Archive project for making this possible.

Oh, one more thing: A relevant topic on the Duke4.net forums has been opened.

A brief introduction (This is not a comic)
210706995228 (Name unknown)
699583335304 (Name unknown)

A few more Gothboy selections

Some stuff shown here actually comes from http://reocities.com/Athens/Thebes/2292/, an old site hosted by Waffles on Geocities. Oh wait, it's a backup of the site hosted on Reocities!
There is also one comic taken off this: http://www.myspace.com/clairobscur_raje/photos/24076084#{%22ImageId%22%3A24076084}
As for 0054-slug-alanrickman, it has been saved thanks to the following page: http://alanrickman.wikispaces.com/Pictures
Japanese Gothboy [English]
Japanese Gothboy [German]

Note: All of the Flash movies may be made for specific browser/frame window proportions.
As for the Christmas one, I'd add it has been found on: http://uploads.ungrounded.net/142000/142035_xmas.swf
Some Flash movie for Halloween
A very Gothboy christmas

Additional Gothboy comics, plus one Flash animation

These were located by Grandy02, and are split into separate groups.

The first group includes comics found in a Strife forum's thread, titled web comic sux.
The .bmp files originally had the file extension of .txt instead. Grandy02's guess was that this was done due to GeoCities restricting external linking of images.

The second group consists of comics from the TmsT Flash animation Gothic MC (hidden bonus), extracted with SWFTools.
Note that these comics were included in JPEG format, so they might not have the original quality.

A couple of older Strife Strips

A snippet(?) out of... October 2nd, 2005: This Strife reloaded
October 21st, 2006: Shorts - Apogee presents Mist

Later Strife Strips made with the Strip Editor

Two user submitted comics (probably unmodified since then and up to being posted as actual "Strife Strips"):
August 18th, 2007: STOP in the name of Duke
UserComic2_2007-7-22 (GUESSED DETAILS: August 25th, 2007: General Duke)
Another such comic in its original form:
September 29th, 2007: Oh Snap - Tsume
A strip posted by lookatme on a 3D Realms forums thread:
Strip from 3DR by lookatme

Oh, one more thing: If you check out the Strip Editor page, you'd find a couple of original Strips while being edited appearing. Furthermore, if you obtain the Strip Editor source code (yes it's up!), you can find a little amount of comics, possibly not in their "final" states. There are also a couple of backgrounds from the "Strife world" over there, so at least we can see a few more peaks into it!
