I added a lot of stuff from that website in the last version, i ran out of time to recheck it, as i want to get another version of AmstradMania out before xmas.

I did a little update to this gamebase, I fixed a few typos, and removed a lot of spaces (think that all) at the end of the game name, so it avoids the ... in the gamebase list.

Would be good if Mark use it (if You have done good job ;)) because if he don't, Atari 800 v12 (if possible in future) won't have it. In other words changes at Creator side are better than on Customer's ;)

Yes, it would be better, hope the author use this little collaboration, I just modified a bit the games names, so it shouldn't represent any problem.

Will you post a few for me to see please Mark, I've seen may people incorrectly name an Atari game and we can't have your lovely gamebase being corrupted ;)

ViejaEra, don't worry I'm sure you are perfectly correct, its just that the Atari 800 etc are my favourite 8bits out there, I've got a lot of history with them in many area's of the field of Atari's.

I sold them, repaired them, reviewed games for them, hacked and cracked stuff, got games published and a whole lot more so I just like to see everything is as it should be..

there are 236 titles with trailing spaces in my older copy.
"\" represents a space at the end of the name.

This is a common problem when cut and pasting names from websites or lists.

Hmm... can't remember exactly, but only like 3 or 4 typos, something like "teh" instead "the". Also I removed a lot of spaces before the comma. "Game , The" (fictitious example). Next time I will try to keep a log of the changes.
In the Spectrum gamebase for example, there are some games that have the word Espana, it should be España, I know that it isn't in your keyboard, you may copy+paste it ñ Ñ. A game that I always fixed the name is Emilio Butragueno that it should be Emilio Butragueño. Just a small details trying to reach perfection :)
