Welcome to Genie's Lamp. The nMKo domain! This is a website revolving around two great games, Metalknights(MK)
and Starknights(SK) created by KnightSoft.
In addition to that, this is also the home of the New MK Order (nMKo), an alliance in MK.
Remember to always hit refresh/reload as sometimes your web browser does not automatically load the updated page!
Yeah, I know it's been a relatively long time since the last update. But this was partly due to the fact that I busted one of my fingers while playing basketball and couldnt type properly. Not that I type properly when all fingers are in use anyway...
I've changed the sitemap a little. Removed the dedicated "Help" Section and instead moved the three help topics under their own respective theme (MK Help under MK world, SK Help under SK World and Downloads Help under Downloads).
I also found the time to finally upload the guestbook entries. My long term plan is to make an ASP Guestbook (the only script supported on this domain) to automate the process.
Given the extended delay, both the MK and SK Worlds are now jam-packed with news and gossip.

Guestbook Added! Netscape Problems Fixed!
I've now added a guestbook amongst other things. The entries are not automatically passed to the guestbook, so when you sign up, it might take 1-2 days to see your message there.
We got a couple more interviews for you today, as well as plenty of news from the MK and SK Worlds. As usual, more helpful tips in the Did you know? section. I'll be adding new interviews with each update.
I've also moved the older news into an archive page. No need to overload the current page with lingering old news.
If you got any pictures/art you would like to show to others, related to MK/SK, email them to me and I'll host them here under a new "Art/Story Section". The same goes for any stories or tips you have, that you would like to share with the rest of us.
I finally isolated the problem that was causing a failure to show the tables on Netscape (and Mozilla). All pages should now be also viewable with those browsers too, but bare in mind there are some visual differences, such as the scrollbar and a few other smaller ones.
People keep asking me to (re-)send them the URL of the website. I wonder why they dont just bookmark it...

Feels like a long time
I havent updated the website for 5 days now, but there was a good reason for it.
You see, some people take certain sports as a hobby, such as basketball or football.
Others collect stamps. I, on the other hand, move to a new flat... for kicks. Having moved to a different
flat 3 times in the last 4 months, I feel that it's turning into a hobby! As usual, with this
update there's more news from the MK and SK worlds,
as well as more did you know? facts. An improvement with the functionality of the website, as now all
external links open to a new window, thanks to a little tip I got from Ironfist. It was also reported that
the polls are not working properly, by quite a few players. Try them now, they should be fixed, if not, let me
know. I've also added a comprehensive table of the experience needed for each skill of each Character in SK.
It's a very helpful look-up table and it was part of an on-going debate in SK about the experience different characters need in order to max-out their skills.
Even while uploading the latest, I also got hips more for the new update, hopefully, should be done by the end of sunday. Such as more interviews from MKers (sneak preview of news to come!).

New Layout and new logo!!!
A lot of cosmetic changes. I basically revamped the whole website so that the sitemap
remains at the same location. Very advanced for an html-noob like me! It took the whole of sunday to do that
(a big part of it was trying to find how to do it and then having to modify the pages). In addition, in case you
havent noticed, we have a new logo, courtesy of Haans. He did a great job, dont you think? There's also been
a great amount of news and updates. Ranging from news about a rejuvenated SK HOF race to things that happen in mIRC.
I have also added yet another comparison chart under the SK Help Section, to serve as analysis of the discussion
about allowing non-merchants to have more alien techs made available to them.
Sep 07, 2003 :
Added the Hall of Legends for both MK and SK
They can be found under MK World and
SK World respectively. Just click on them see for yourselves ;)
New links, an alternative forum for SKers, created by Moonshadow
and Haans' MK Community page has been brought back online, but to a different location, so update your bookmarks!
Sep 04, 2003 :
First Chapter on the SK Help
More news of the MK
and SK Worlds with
some more did you know? facts for both.
Today, I've also added the first piece on the SKHelp section.
A table comparing the different statistics of the characters in SK as well as an up-to-date table (showing the different tech levels for each) of all the Alien techs with comprehensive descriptions. In addition, I have added a couple more links.
and Asmodeus' SK Galaxy.
As usual, if you got any comments, drop me a line.
For those who have yet to vote, feel free to visit the Polls - found in the MK
and SK Worlds - and cast your votes.

A guide on how to make your own tileset in MK
Yet another massive update. Today, we have lots of news in the MK World
and the SK World as well as
several new polls for both MK and SK, lots of did you know? facts and a guide on
how to make your own tileset for MK. In addition to a table of the statistics of all the Units in MK.
There is also, for the first time, a table revealing the way in which the standard Rank points are awarded in MK.
More details in the MKHelp section.
Furthermore, the poll-cookie has been fixed, so now you can instantly look at the results and ofcourse
vote only once.
The Allied Assault homepage has also been added on the mk alliances links.
As usual, if you have any comments, good or bad, simply
drop me a line.
