Re: Little bugs in the database

I don't believe there is any re-released version by Argus Press. There is only one original release from AnF+Argus Press and re-release by Bug-Byte. https://www.retrogames.co.uk/023608/Sinclair/Core-by-AnF In that case, I think the 're-releases' field should be corrected, as it displays Argus Press...

Re: Game art copied from elsewhere

It's a pretty ironic choice of image, given the title! One thing is not obvious to me. Do we have one hero or two heroes here? If it's one hero then does it mean that he can transform magically from a warrior to a mage? :?: According to the instructions, "the forces of evil have taken over the worl...

Re: Wanted: Inlays

But I believe ZXDB already has inlays and instructions taken from other platforms where Spectrum version couldn't be found. Can't find examples at the moment but I'm sure they do exist. Yes, there are many. For example, Samurai Trilogy, that includes the C64 inlay but it's marked as 'C64' in the fi...

Re: Little bugs in the database

Next games have a ' scanned instructions ' feature in the database. But what we see is the scanned inlay again. It seems it's been scanned the wrong side: - Black Lamp - Dark Sceptre I'll post here if I find more It was a bug in my script which generated spreadsheets for adding inlays. These inlays...

Re: Wanted: Inlays

Thanks Ralf. The idea is if someone has the phisical tapes he might scan the inlay and upload to this archive. If someone misses another inlay, he can report it to this thread. Checking the inlays you provided I see only Blizzard Pass and Genghis Khan are useful, as the others are for other computer...

The only condition is we cannot use the title “Atic Atac” as they don’t want it to be confused as an official Rare game.
Well... what about Atac Atic? :mrgreen:
