1999-10-29 23:00:00-05: We've rolled out a new release, code-named "orange pumpkin". There
are a lot of changes, many too small to mention, but five are quite notable:
Moby now represents five gaming platforms: Booters (no OS), DOS, Windows 3.1, Windows
95/98/NT/2000, and Linux. Seperating each platform allows us to track additional information
about the games and also add a whole new class of games to Moby--Linux games! If a game
was released for multiple platforms, there's only a single game entry to the database.
Within the game, the ratings, requirements and reviews are associated with a particular platform.
Jim and Brian have created the MobyGames Giveaway!
We're giving away a portion of our personal game collection to
people who have helped out above and beyond the call of duty. It basically boils down
to this: free games. Check it out for details.
Users can now contribute trivia about a game through the "Contribute" link
on the Rap Sheet. Each trivia item contributed earns one contribution point.
(Don't worry; the previous trivia items were converted and the original game contributors
were retroactively credited.)
A game can have as many trivia items as needed, so please feel free to
share those interesting bits of information with everyone else.
Ask and ye shall receive: Users can now add companies to the database.
If when adding a game you enter a company that doesn't exist in the database, you now have
the option of adding it. Each company added earns one contribution point.
We have made a slight change to the logon system which will prevent the
"Auto-Logout" problems that some users were experiencing (especially AOL
We are really excited about this new code rollout and invite everyone to try out the new features and modifications.
