Errors & Contributions / Re: Amiga renaming suggestions
« Last post by Crashdisk on January 12, 2021, 08:17:05 AM »
Hi Kodoichi,

I haven't seen this kind of talk and I doubt they're still online. EAB is a grouping of the Amiga community from different origins and if there are any misconduct, they are reported and moderated. Many users have been banned for bad behaviour like you describe and moderators have also been demoted for bad comments. The appearance of sometimes toxic people on EAB is human nature and today's moderators are willing to fight against them. What saves Tosecdev is that there is almost nobody...

Small return on past proposals:

Khalaan (1990)(Rainbow Arts)(Disk 1 of 2)[h SCX] - Bad disk.
Fixed

> 1000 Miglia (1992)(Simulmondo)(en-it)[cr Goonies][t +1 Goonies][b crack - rootblock]
= 1000 Miglia (1992)(Simulmondo)(en-it)[cr Goonies][t +1 Goonies][b crack - bootblock]
No error! Rootblock and bootblock are two different things but I understand that this technical aspect can be confusing


(note the lowercase, all other files of this game have that error)
No TNC error, it's a style effect.For the next release, I will make corrections based on GPO-based writing convention


The Warlock(s) error still persists in lots of entries
Fixed..again ;-)


> Amiga-Magazin-PD 92-11 (1992)(Markt & Technik)(DE)(1 of y)[WB]
= Amiga-Magazin-PD 92-11 (1992)(Markt & Technik)(DE)(1 of x)[WB]
No real error, The notation (disk x of y) is TNC compliant. I prefer a fix based on the real number of disks.


Super Cauldron (1993)(Titus)(Disk 1 of 2)[cr PDX][t +26 UP]
= Super Cauldron [t +26 UP] & Crazy Cars III (demo-playable)(1993-04-24)(Paradox)[Super Cauldron only]
Including a demo in a full game does not make it a compilation. Your proposal is also wrong by the fact that the presence of the demo is not the work of Paradox but of Titus himself.

Super Cauldron (1993)(Titus)(Disk 1 of 2)[cr PDX][t +26 UP]

= Super Cauldron [t +26 UP] & Crazy Cars III (demo-playable)(1993-04-24)(Paradox)[Super Cauldron only]

I guess this belongs into the games compilations database. After the cracktro it shows text that mentions a compilation of Super Cauldron and Crazy Cars III, but then a trainer pops right up and Super Cauldron is loaded, leaving no time to choose which game to play. I'm confused why Super Cauldron wasn't "compacted" and "one-disked" though. Never saw a game compilation requiring two disks.

I've been an active member there for 15 years and honestly don't recollect anything like that.
I remember there was a guy cracking "jokes" about homosexuals and admins cheering him on, as well as others making "jokes" about people with disabilities. Being stuck in 80s retrogaming is harmless, having a backwards mindset and not accepting diversity is inexcusable.

I'm not convinced some of these are not just flat out errors...

We need some sort of checks in place for dupes. I used to do this sporadically when I had every single TOSEC file saved and unzipped in all branches, and used to CloneSpy the whole tree (but that aint happening again any time soon!).

Pand - is TOSEC-DB still a thing that is? Could some sort of duplicate checking of hashes be added to this? Obv I'm a bit out of the loop with whats been going on recently....

I don't know what is going on here (and not build IBM yet BTW...) but might be sitting in "PC" too... check out the other [more info] flags, previously.

No, don't think that's the solution.

Completely understand how this has arisen. Game Developer A creates Demo Disc, gives it away with affiliated game X, promotional competition, just flat out gives them out, whatever. Also, gives it to 'Official' magazine Y, who slap their own logo on the disc (cover disc done for this month, woohoo BEERS!).

I mean thats the point. It's a PROMOTIONAL SAMPLE. To create buzz/sales.

Sega Saturn has loads, PS1 too, God I'm sure most major platforms do.

Tricky one though. Must be an issue with floppy coverdiscs too (in MAIN). Compilations/Collections too.

No harm, for sure. But dupes... meh... dupes are annoying, where you draw the line?

BTW... think I've found some more examples (rebuilding ISO from near scratch), will post findings. Maybe shed extra light on it.
