M1A1 20/20 Quiz
Posted By: REBDate: 7/22/01 1:13 p.m.

Hey guys, I'm looking for a couple of external betatesters for M1A1 and I decided to do a little quiz. You can reply me right here on the forum with a brief description of your system or you can mail me at biomeca@hotmail.com (people with slow machines are welcome too.)

Please note that you gotta answer the entire question, you can't guess and you have get at least 10 answers right (but even if you do, remember I'm picking up the people with the most number of correct answers.) When the trial period is over I'll post the solution.
