Shannon Posted June 14, 2008 Share Posted June 14, 2008 (edited) OK guys here we go. As stated in the PM I'm trying to gather information concerning the game variations in 2600 games for inclusion with the xbox Z26 emu. A rather large task to say the least. I also intend to make this DB file available for use by anyone wishing to use it. I only ask anyone who does to give credit to the people involved with gathering this information. To get to the AtariAge provided manuals, just follow this link. Use the following settings. Region -> North America TV Format -> NTSC Items Per Page -> All I count about 945 titles which comes out to 315 each with the 3 volunteers we have. Me, Albert, and Mimo. If we go alphabetically that would end up as follows (approximation). Me -> 2003 AtariAge Holiday Cart thru Final Approach AL -> Fast Food thru Quest For Quintana Roo Mimo ->Qb thru Zaxxon Hopefully no one ended up with a bunch of stinkers. I included one sample. See message #2 for what it would look like. I usually just cut-n-paste the stuff into notepad, edit it, and then cut-n-paste it into the message board. Looks like with HTML manuals it's best to use the "code" tag and cut-n-past straight into the message box. Also listed in message two is a sample of the database file format. It is designed to work within the constraints of X-ports "INI file" reading code. Don't worry about formatting anything that way unless you want to.. It is pretty much a work in progress and as you can see Asteroids has a little exception called "Kid mode" which I have not really resolved just yet so the below example just might have to be changed. Ultimately how it ends up will depend on what ALL the different games have in common with each other in regards to game select charts. I'm trying to keep the size of the DB file small as can be seen. Mostly due to the amount of memory the xbox has compared to a normal PC. This thread will self destruct in one week.
