Title: FW game list updates
Post by: dado2095 on January 12, 2020, 07:28:27 am
Hi!

I noticed that some of the games in the game list lacks informations. If I wanted to help by adding informations, pictures, ecc... how can I do that?

Thanks in advance,

Dado :D

If you post stuff here on the forums, I can update the game list.  What were you looking to do specifically?

Specifically I don't know. :-[  I hang out every now and then on the game list just to search some games that I wouldn't otherwise know about, since it is the most exhaustive list on the matter, and when I see some bits missing from a game I would like to enter this additionals informations (eg. missing ID, Developer, Genre, Retail Price) just for completeness sake. I imagine it can be defined as a finishing touch job here and there!

That said, it is not my intention to belittle the wonderful job you did with this list, mind you! I am an FW noob, and I would never dream of diminishing the work done by FW veterans!

ID values - always welcome
Developer - I trust GDRI's research (http://gdri.smspower.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page) more than any other source
Genre - Sort of subjective, but welcome
Retail Price - I have a book with all of these values, but haven't filled them all in yet

very well! it's a relief! I was afraid that my post sounded like: "ugh let me do it because you're not good at it!"

Perfect, thanks a lot! I'll focus on IDs! I will post them as soon as I accumulate some, so I don't make a thousand posts  :)
