Re: Little bugs in the database 2

OK, I'm convinced! Now I think it makes more sense to only credit Dinamic for this re-release.

@druellan What do you think?

Re: Little bugs in the database 2

It's very clear on the UK adverts for Game Over 2 and Navy Moves that Electronic Arts are the distributor , not the publisher. Electronic Arts were the distributors for several publishers, most notoriously CRL, and EA don't get a publisher credit on those titles. Hi! We are discussing what to do ab...

Re: New Database Model ZXDB

Not sure if this is a bug or not, but in the past I've noticed the magazine references often link to one past the intended page. For example, the Pssst link takes me to page 79 when the actual reference is on page 78. It seems like the page numbers in archive.org links start at zero, with no page n...

Re: New Database Model ZXDB

I forgot to mention that I have fixed references to magazine "Personal Computer News" in this last update! These references were originally imported from Martijn's WoS database. The problem is, "Personal Computer News" was a weekly magazine, but Martijn's WoS only supported monthly magazines, so it ...

One question though: On WoS several games by The DrUnKeN mAsTeR!!! have an adult status. "Allow adult search results (opt-in)" m...

Re: The best modern Speccy game beginning with C: vote

I do love to torture myself with a bit of Crimbo and its woefully unfair collision detection, but my vote has to be for the staggeringly good opponent A.I. programming that's gone into Complica DX . That's a real achievement of 8-bit programming. Thank you!!! Frankly I never expected anyone to appr...
