Hi

As I'm adding games for the C64, it seems there are some games that never appeared on Disk [D64], but only on Tape [T64]. We also have Cartridges [CRT]. So 3 different medias.

When looking for the games, it can sometimes be annoying that you start, and keep on looking under D64 on PE, and finally think, hey it could be that it's under T64. I would really like players to know where to look for the games, so I have these solutions.

Option 1:

Add:

-D64-
-T64-
-CRT-

at the end of the file description, or would that make it to messy?

Option 2:

Make a tournament for each of them:

C64-Regulation Play [D64]
C64-Regulation Play [T64]
C64-Regulation Play [CRT]

I would go for option 2, but is there any disadvantages doing that? I know that we get 3 different leaderboards for C64 Regulation play.

Opinions?

Maybe option 2 gets to messy, as there would also be 3 different area for Side Competitions and Clone Competions?

I vote for option 1.

So long as there is an indication of whether a game is a D64/T64/CRT, it's not hard to find them - and you only have to download them once. Smile

Yes, I see what you mean. So we'll go with:

H.E.R.O. [cr REM][t +9 REM][Docs][148] -D64-

As I think another set of [] could confuse some players Smile

I also think version 1 is ok. Version 2 can be used but I think it should only be used if there are different versions of the same game from tape and cart, but i'm thinking this is not the case.

We went with option 1, putting a (D64) behind disk games Smile
