General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...

The Graphic Adventure Creator - Peter Carter (per inlay)

Other credits in the inlay not recorded in SC:

PRODUCED BY: IAN ANDREW
Note SPOT/SPEX has different authors. The quote above seems to be correct.

Moon Cresta - Pete Carter (per instructions)

The SC credits seem only partially correct. They omit roles and the name Ian Andrew. The instructions say:
Authors: Tim Walter and Philip Taglione
Cover and Loading Screen: Pete Carter
Produced by Ian Andrew

A weird case this time:

Slaine (Martech)

In the game entry, Glenn Fabry appears as the author (I supposed is the original comic artist). Besides, in the game instructions recently uploaded by Pavero, it can be read:

'We would like to thank the following people:

[...]

Steinar Lund - for airbrushing the Creative Reality logo.
'

Do you think S. Lund should be included as a second artist in the game entry for 'airbrushing the logo'?

Last Mohican by CRL.
If we stare at the artwork, down right, it seems Phil Gascoine's signature, doesn't it?
I was looking at other works, and yes, looks like his signature.

His signature appears behind the letter 'M'. Almost sure it's him. The same as the post above. Don't you think?
This one is even more clear.

Arcticfox by Electronic Arts.

According to the credits in the inlay, "Artwork: John Burton"

(From @Mort 's archive.org site )
Probably not this John Burton: https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... el_id=7213

@Einar Saukas Rodney Matthews, inlay artist, is listed as "contributor" in Seas of Boold: https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 96&id=6941 Is this the correct way to reference him (since it is not a staff artists, but a freelance), or it is just the way the artist got imported into the database?

Edit: Phil Gascoine is also reference a "contributor" on many titles.
