For TAA there is also a set named:
"TAA 87 (1987)(TAA)"
in datfile: "Commodore Amiga - Demos - Animations and Videos"

Since it is a demo it should be by a scene group, do you know if this is the same group (and so publisher field should also be fixed?) or a new group?

Sorry, cant find this set for checking.


Here i will just make a reference to 2 other sets that are also using Skyline but in publisher field, one is from c64 docs datfile so i suppose it is a different 'something', the other is "Squamble (19xx)(Skyline)[t +4 LGD]" from "Commodore Amiga - Games - Public Domain - [ADF]", which i have no idea if it is the same group, other or something else (publisher, blabla).
Also SKL isn't used anywhere for Amiga sets, if you plan to use it for this group please let me know :)

Seems to be a different.
Full name: Skyline Software

Yes it seems, also it seems a proof, that all sets by the scene group "Skyline" are before the year 1990 and the production by "Skyline Software" is from 1992, so its more than likely different.

by the way, i will use "SKL"  abbreviation for "Skyline"  (group).

"TSP" used in
Vision - The 5 Dimension Utopia (1992)(Rainbow Arts)(DE)(Disk 1 of 7)[cr TSP][FD-HD]
is invalid.
It should be "TSB" = "The Special Brothers" (known and valid).

TFS = The Fire Starters

This is a known/valid abbreviation, but you need picture and info for the database.

Home country = Australia
The group was mainly a spreading group.

Bencor Bros, Bencor Brothers, BB

is all the same group.
For your information, i will use "Bencor Brothers", because i have not seen "BB" in any set until now.
I have changed "Bencor Bros" to "Bencor Brothers" to prevent confusing. :)

About "BB":
"BB" is used 4 times in Amiga games dat.
Battle Chess II - Chinese Chess (1992)(Interplay)(Disk 1 of 2)[cr SR][h BB - Fantasy]
Battle Chess II - Chinese Chess (1992)(Interplay)(Disk 2 of 2)[cr SR][h BB - Fantasy]
This two sets "BB"  stands for "Black Bastard", also here "BB" is not valid until now.

Ok, thanks for that.
Bencor Bros is used a lot more times so you need to fix them all :)
About the BB, for me it is ok to not use it if there is no proof, maybe in EAB someone can help you out with it?
In c64 there are some groups using BB too (even according to csdb). I guess Bencor Brothers between Amiga and c64 is the same and c64 uses the abbreviation a lot of BB, so it needs to be checked later.

About Black Bastard, you need to fix it to the full name then, pics of both would be nice :)
