We try to keep on top of all new Spectrum text adventures at CASA, so there will pretty much always be a link to a CASA page that can be added when the game gets put in ZXDB... mainly because I tend to add new games there and then also post a link in the new games thread here.
Thanks!

We currently have 2229 links to CASA in ZXDB, but there are certainly many links we are still missing.

Would it help to post/send the links of all the 2018/2019 additions that don't currently link to the associated CASA pages?
Yes! Thanks a lot!!!

Notice that CASA has different links for each idiom of the same game. For instance:

https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 96&id=1661

For this reason, please also identify the idiom for each link. Ideally we need the ZXDB ID (or ZXDB link), CASA link, and idiom. This information can be in a spreadsheet, text file, or whatever other format you choose.

(I will have to see if it's possible for Jacob to add automatic links to Spectrum Computing, similar to the WOS links that currently appear)
Awesome!!!

All IDs from WoS links will also work for ZXDB, except for a few corrections we made. But we also have many new ones not in WoS. If you know SQL, the full list can be extracted from latest ZXDB as follows:

Code: Select all

SELECT * FROM webrefs WHERE website_id = 11
Or let me know and I will export this information for you!

This effort will also help us find out if there are any adventures for Sinclair machines (Spectrum, ZX81, etc) missing from ZXDB so we can add this information, try to find a playable version, etc. Great! :)

@Alessandro You may want to send your solution to CASA!
I already sent it to the Tipshop. Could they link it to the Tipshop game entry, when it will be make available? Besides, the current link is wrong, it points to Midnight Resistance.

Sure!

Everything I posted about CASA also applies to The Tipshop. We currently have 5109 links to The Tipshop in ZXDB. If anyone's willing to help cataloguing the remaining links we are missing, please let us know!

I see you mean the links pointing to WoS and Tipshop from the CASA webpage.

These links are not really wrong. Both are keyword searches, looking for any game containing "Resistance" in the title. Right now, these sites only have "Midnight Resistance", that's not CASA's fault.
