 ;D hi  i have just notice some errors in the TOSEC Naming Convention 2015-03-23.pdf downloaded from the site.

Hacked - [h]
The original software has been deliberately hacked/altered in some way, such as adding an intro or changing in game sprites or text.
The variants are:
[h] - Hacked
TOSEC Naming Convention 01-01-2015
20
[f Hack] – Description of hack
[f Hacker] – Hacked by (group or person)
[f Hack Hacker] – Description of hack, followed by hacker (group or person)

all the date in the doc are bad.
For the hacker flag it's the same in the TOSEC Naming Convention web version

Thanks! Fixed both pages (pdf+html). Will also do a few updates to the site's software.

I found some [FD installed] in the Amiga games database and couldn't find any explanation what it is. I guess it's FixDisk, a tool to fix disk errors?
Remember ROM Doctor?

This is a disk obtained by an installation process. Most of the time, it reduces the number of disks on the original distribution and it also allows to propose an installation on hard disk

Ah, I see. Lots of coverdisks used that method.

But should these disks even be listed in Tosec then, if they have an original, parent installer disk (unless they had a cracktro and other stuff added)? Basically they're just contributing to more [a]lternatives? On the other hand I understand that it's easier for us to play these games right away without creating the disks first.
