Amiga groups related
« on: September 06, 2009, 10:25:41 AM »
@Pandmonium:
According your database there is a problem with the group "The Black Dragons", "Black Dragons Inc." and their abbreviation "TBD".
So far i have checked all sets in Amiga games dat, there are both full names, but i was not able to find th "TBD" abbreviation.
Can you please check, if there are sets in other Amiga dats and post here, please.

hi mai
TKaos didn't tell you how to see that ? :P
There are 10 sets using the TBD and it is valid already, i just didn't know which was their name but it seems both are valid, the abbreviation can be seen in a mouse pointer in GOD Compact Disk (1991)(Global Over Dose)[m TBD]   / Commodore Amiga - Compilations - Games i think, weren't you the one who found it out? :P
The other TBD abbreviation is found in 5 C64 sets but i don't know what they are, possibly the same group?

Ok, all sets from Demos are really by a group called "Paranoid", its/was a group from Germany, it seems abbreviation is "PAD".
All sets from Amiga/Games/PD are by a different group/publisher/Developer called also "Paranoid" from Ireland.
Screenshots:(group from Germany).

Yes, we have talked about this subject, but no decision until now, because
somewhere i have read - probably in this forum - that there was a message traffic between "[IDORU]" and "BippyM" and i dont know the result.
And of course, i would like to maintaining Amiga dats, especially Amiga/Games/ADF,
You know by yourself, the number of Amiga sets are very high, to manage/check all this files is a job, which would take a lot of years, usually
not a job for only one man.
I have also told to "TKaos", to finish checking all sets from Amiga/Games/ADF would last until the middle of next year.

Nice findings, so we have more groups with similar names or even a publisher/developer :P
About the last post, we aren't here to race so the time is not a problem, we just want to have some work going, he talked with bippy, you can read it here somewhere i think.

BS = Bloodsuckers
BS is used once until now in:
Omni-Play Horse Racing - Track Editor (1989)(SportTime)[cr BS][b errdms][data disk]
so its valid.

ok, added all that info.
Bloodsuckers is used as publisher in some amiga demos and also 2 sets from c64, like you said BS is used once in Amiga and a bit in spectrum but i think its not the same groups, have no idea of what it means in spectrum or if it is just the full name for some group / scener and not his abbreviation.
Anyway thanks for the info :P

Re:ING is invalid
« Reply #10 on: September 26, 2009, 11:39:21 AM »
"ING" used in:
Operation Cleanstreet (1988)(Broderbund)[cr ING - WOW]
Operation Cleanstreet (1988)(Broderbund)[cr ING - WOW][a]
is invalid.
The real abbreviation used in the cracktro is "TNG" = "The Next Generation"
You can not see the real full name in the cracktro itself, but on the disk you can read "TNG" = "The Next Generation", so its a proof.

"Phil" used in
Operation Spruance (1990)(Parse)[cr Phil]
was a member of the group "Defjam"
In this case it was a crack under the "ACC - Defjam - CCS" label.
