It's a fun game, though it can take a little while to learn.

Well, kinda. ^_^;  I've got several pages of notes and the like,
some points values, but I haven't dug them out of the pile of boxes
still left over from my (not-so-recent) move.  I'll see what I can find.
As I recall, the various autocannon and large-caliber guns generally
translate well (LACs are 20mm, so are RFAC/1s, for example, and the VLFG
think I called a HVC/3... snub cannon was a DFFG) but the rocket pods
other weapons are kinda tough.	HRPs do well as SLAMs, but anything
doesn't work... for one thing, a SLAM/3 is hard to fit on anything but
larger Gears to begin with.  In Stargrunt, I was calling the rocket pods
one or two those funky power armor one-shot salvoes, but there's no real
equivalent in Dirtside.

Well, I can't say I did anything with the organizational stuff, but I'll
try to dig out my DSII conversions over the weekend.  Come to that, I
should probably toss 'em up on my web page....
