After a bit of frustration having to manually change the broken forum links, my partner and I put together a script that automatically redirects the user to the correct URL. Just install it into a browser extension like Greasemonkey or Tampermonkey and it's good to go!

Omg! As someone who constantly searches up resources on the forums, this is a lifesaver for me. Thanks so much for making and sharing this!

That is awesome! Works great (apart from the very brief error message before it redirects). I was manually editing any URL I clicked, so this is a huge timesaver, at least until they fix the link problem.

Many thanks for posting this!

I'm still waiting for Google to recache some of the older links. I've still been getting 404 when clicking older Google links. Unless it was a new old link, and the forums when back to the old link scheme? I can't notice.

Awesome video. Btw, if you upload to Greasyfork you don't need the create new script + paste instructions. Greasyfork hosts the user.js so it works as an install link.

Based on this screenshot alone, which one would you sell, and which to equip?
Some random sketch-letons.

I have a strong urge to make a tutorial video of all the random things I've learned since starting on my game. little helpful tips and stuff that may help people.
Do you guys think it's better to have all members in your team from the beginning (then you can pick who battles) or you gain team members as the story goes?
