is a very similar case as the game from my last post.

It's a demo, full version was never released.

And loading screen could be improved:

The game will be released in 2261, everything is logical, then update the database :lol:

Hello @Ralf,

Can you take a loading screen image with Fuse or similar in .scr format please and we can change it. Just pop it up to Dropbox or similar and PM me a link.

Hi, i just saw that some credits are missing:


https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=35772
Andy Green was deeply involved in the game.


https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=35793
Lobo did all the graphics.


If you could add their names to the credits, it would be awesome.

Thanks :)

Russian game Babylon 5:
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=12749

is just an unfinished demo but it is currently classified as full game. It isn't mentioned anywhere in the game that's a demo but
at some quite early moment in the game you cannot progress anymore (see my submission to Rzx Archive).
Thanks! I will reclassify it as "never released".

There are 2 TRD files (with corresponding TAP versions). Only one of them is currently marked as "demo". Are they identical? What's the different between them? I'm wondering if I should mark both as "demo", or keep one as "demo" and maybe mark the other as "incomplete"?

I tested all 4 playable files. In none of them, this screen appears while loading. In every case, this screen appears immediately after loading. This is literally the definition of an "intro screen".

I'm sorry, but I don't think it's appropriate to show a different image than the loading screen that a program actually uses, just because it would look better.
