Site improvements

Post by PeterJ » Sat Oct 27, 2018 6:39 am

We have made a few changes to website. Many of these improvements have been asked for in recent posts to the forum.

Thanks to @Einar Saukas for his assistance with these changes.

* We now display disk, microdrive and cartridge prices whenever available:

https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=836

* Now we show when games in a compilation were available as demo, full version, or soundtrack only:
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 96&id=4562

https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=13519

* Now we show whenever SPOT/SPEX credits are different from the archive:

Good work! Got another little one for you:

"License Information" doesn't indicate whether there is an official licence, or just "inspired by". For example, Galaxians by Artic wasn't licensed from Namco, and Nightmare on Robinson Street didn't have the approval of Grundy TV!

You need to check for a "1" in zxdb.entry.was_inspired.

We have d80 (see main file downloads for X-Magazine for example). What are you looking for specifically?

I can write a SQL query over the weekend to search ZXDB for D80 file extensions if that helps? That will give you a list of all our titles.

Yes, would be great. I found only "DTP Machine Utility", because one labelled for Didaktik.

ZXDB supports all Sinclair related information including clones! We will gladly add information about these files to ZXDB.
