50 more games preserved, XML database, CGEUK


Another 50 games preserved. You can see the list on the games page. Happy Easter!

We now provide a database of the releases for offline usage that is updated every time we do a release. It can be used to allow viewing of the games page, creating “DAT” files, or even used as part of an emulator front end. It is basically an XML based data file that is transformed on the fly using XSL for pretty much any purpose. The examples included are an offline version of the games page, and a couple of example DAT’s. All you need to view the database is an XSL enabled browser. You can get it from the download page. Thanks to Zunchadores for the idea.

We will be exhibiting at the Classic Gaming Expo UK in Croydon, South London on the 24th and 25th July. Feel free to drop by for a chat or just to play a few games.

Lastly, we have now secured a large number of games using the funds donated. A few of these have appeared in this batch of preserved games, and many more will probably appear in the next one. If you would like to donate to the project so we can preserve more games, please visit the accounts/donation page. Alternatively, if you have games that are not on the release list, please consider dumping them. You can mail us here in order to get instructions and the software required.
