I use a bit different name system, not project name, but name of machine, so differencies are:

1. Original name "AmstradMania_V3" - renamed folder and .MDB file in my resources to "Amstrad CPC" (the version I've upped)

2. I use short paths, instead of full paths - examples from "paths.ini":
[Games]
1=.\Amstrad CPC\Games
2=
[Pictures]
1=.\Amstrad CPC\Screenshots
2=
[Extras]
1=.\Amstrad CPC\Extras
2=
[Misc]
Photos=.\Amstrad CPC\Musician Photos
Music=.\Amstrad CPC\Music
3. I choose 232 games as Favourites - if You don't want it, You can delete it:
- go to view "Favourite Games/Music" in GameBase
- mark the game and press CTRL+F12 (removes game from Favourites in "Favourite's" view)

Rest is untouched by me. I hope Mark will not be angry on me ;)
Ofcourse my changes do not break anything, everything is working 100%

I dont mind, but renaming it to Amstrad CPC will overwrite over the other amstrad gamebase available, if someone already had it installed. Thats why i called it Amstradmania.

I fully understand You and respect Your decisions. I renamed all of downloaded GameBase's to have more precise names (nothing against You or anyone else). I'm affraid I may have weak memory (in my head, not PC's) after several years, so I prevent it like this 8). Renaming database's requires more attention when collecting new ones, but I take care of it, to test and collect the best of them.

Tnx again for everything You did :D

I just downloaded and installed AmstradMania from the UG site (with considerable help from Vicman).
Really grateful to him!
Seems to be much more comprehensive than the Amstrad CPC version?

Amstradmania V4 is taking a lot more time then i thought, but i have added a lot of new stuff. Hope to have a release sometime in October.
