Thanks for these - all sitting in WIP for next release now. A couple of things:

1) Some of your dates seem off - I had assumed that this might be due to time-zone differences, but the release you have marked as (2004-12-21) I see as posted on 2004-12-23, so there must be something else going on (https://atariage.com/forums/topic/59998-beef-drop-work-in-progress/?do=findComment&comment=763814)
2) Managed to grab a few additional dev builds from the forum, plus the final demo release before the cart was produced as I worked my way through, so have included these as well. In some cases these dates conflict with those already given, so I have shifted according to what I'm seeing in terms of post date
3) I couldn't find anything corresponding to
Code: [Select]
Beef Drop (2004-10-20)(Siders, Ken)(alpha)(FW) or
Code: [Select]
Beef Drop (2004-10-26)(Siders, Ken)(alpha)(FW). From the downloads available, only unheadered versions seem to be included for those dates - not sure how / if these can be converted to headered.

All looks good though, and thanks for contributing these!

1) I have used the date of the ROM in the ZIP not the date of the posting.
2) ok
3) Very likely converted them or got the file converted at time of creation.  The header of Oct-26 and Oct-20 is the same as the first version. Can't say for sure it was nearly 18 years ago :-( - See here: http://7800.8bitdev.org/index.php/A78_Header_Specification#Adding_Or_Modifying_an_A78_Header_on_an_Existing_ROM

if i do this for the Oct-20 version - it creates a identical file

That makes sense on dates - personally I would tend to take the date something was posted as the date of its "publication", but I don't necessarily have an issue with the dates varying slightly in the way you've done it. The only ones I've shifted is where there's a clash with a newly added dev build.

Cheers for the hint on the headers, confirm I've got matching files for both 20th and 26th October releases now by adding the header to the top of the file.
