"Parse" used in
Operation Spruance (1990)(Parse)
and so on
is invalid.
It should be "Parsec"

ok, done!
and about a screen shot? :P
btw, there is also a "Parsec Software", used once in adf games, i suppose it is the same one right? So what is this?
A different publisher, the full name for Parsec and so probably only the name should be used or maybe an alias for Parsec (so it is ok to use it :P), what do you want to do in this case? :)

I am not able to find "Parsec Software" in:
Commodore Amiga - Games - [ADF] (TOSEC-v2009-09-04_CM)
but "Parsec Software" is the full name.

sorry, it is in a different datfile, all Parsec references:


Commodore Amiga 
Games - Public Domain - [ADF]:
Moon City (1993)(Parsec Software)(de)

Commodore Amiga Games - [ADF]:
Freak Out (1993)(Parsec)[cr DLT]
Freak Out (1993)(Parsec)[cr DLT][a2]
Freak Out (1993)(Parsec)[cr DLT][a3]
Freak Out (1993)(Parsec)[cr DLT][a]
Freak Out (1993)(Parsec)[cr DLT][+2 FTH]
Freak Out (1993)(Parsec)[cr DLT][+4 FTH]

Sinclair ZX Spectrum Games - [Z80]:
Adventure Number 02 Pirate Adventure (1985)(Adventure International)[cr Parsec]
Buckaroo Banzai (1987)(Adventure International)[cr Parsec]

so, what is "Parsec"? A developer/publisher? I guess Spectrum one is a group/scener and is not related to the amiga one.
