Soft had left Comic Chat several years ago, (CA 2000). Mermaid Elizabeth is currently maintaining this website. Since most of the people who were given the .BGB maker by Microsoft for BETA testing are no longer involved with Microsoft 'Comic' Chat, Mermaid has created a webpage for downloading this "unreleased" beta program.
Now earlier, Mermaid shared this program with another indivdual who immediately shared it with others. None of these people have taken the time to read the instructions! As a consequence, we now have a lot of bad distorted backgrounds being used in Comic Chat.
PLEASE, if you wish to create AWESOME backgrounds, take the time to read the instructions. Pay special attention to the "Helpful Tips".
If you wish to have your backgrounds posted here, if they are not infringing on others copyrights ,(This means if you have some of your original artwork or original photographs that you would like to have converted to auto downloading 'Microsoft Comic Chat' backgrounds), you may send them to Mermaid Elizabeth for conversion.
Please send your work in .Zip format,.
For best results:
~ Send original computer generated artwork in it's original file format.
~ Oringinal scanned artwork in it's scanned .TIF format.
~ Original Photos in their original .JPG format.
Please include within your email message the name you prefer
for the background and the name of it's creator.
The more orignal the file is, the better the bgb background quality it will become!
Mermaid Elizabeth reserves the right to reject any material she deems

Remember to .ZIP your creations prior to 'attaching' them to your email message.
