The Japanese and Chinese online resources have been produced in two or three different versions so that users can choose the delivery mode that best suits them.

  1. Online version available on this website – Scenarios, Explorers and Space voyage games
  2. Browser-based versions for the Scenarios and Space voyage games. These are supplied in a zip (compressed) format and can be installed on your local disc, LAN/WAN or web server
  3. Standalone executables for all resources – Scenarios, Explorers and Space voyage games
  4. To run the Explorers locally on a school network (LAN or WAN) in browser mode with a functioning Backpack, you require a server side solution. A ‘web’ version for deployment on a LAN or WAN in either ‘.php’ or ‘’ can be provided on request. Only these two versions have been prepared. Note that these versions will not be supported by technical help. Contact:
