The Medievia website no longer has a section of player pictures. This help
file will stay here in case that should return. In the meantime, these
basic FTP instructions for Windows may be useful to our community.
This file was written to allow people to upload pictures to Medievia
without using a client. There are currently several clients that will
allow you to do this, including my favorite CuteFTP, for Windows. This
help-file was specifically written for Windows clients, but Fetch can be
used for Macintosh.
The Basics: FTP stands for file transfer protocol. It is used to connect
two computers over the Internet and allows them to send and receive files.
What to do: Windows comes with a basic ftp client. Go to the START
button, click RUN, and type ftp www.medievia.com; a screen will appear.
You will be presented with a prompt that looks like this:
Connected to www.medievia.com.

Great! You're logged in. Now type 'bin', this changes the transfer type to
binary, all you need to know is that it allows you to send images.
200 Type is Image (Binary)
Now, to upload. The absolute easiest way to do this is to put your desired
file on your desktop. To do this, click on your file, and 'drag' it to
your desktop. Ok, your file is in your desktop, now you type send filename.ext
ftp> send party3.jpg
