Internet News   Internet News : Minimig Game Compatibility Database Import Complete!
   posted by tonyyeb on 9-Nov-2008 14:35:22 (2568 reads)
I have managed to import the http://www.opencircuits.com/Minimig_Software_compatibility wiki table into the Minimig Games Compatibility database over at www.AUKUG.co.uk . Now the list is easily edited. You can attach pictures to each record and best of all the list is searchable and can be sorted by the various fields.

Read more...


The data is a little rough as not everyone has filled in every field on the Open Circuits table, plus there is an extra field on the MGCD for the Minimig board revision/type.

If you want to add/update any entries with more accurate information then please do!

Thanks to Darrin, TheDaddy, Amazing, straycat, and all those who spent time testing the games on the Minimig and adding their findings to the Open Circuits wiki. Without them, none of this would be possible.

Soon there will be a Minimig section on the site with downloads and tutorials (updating the PIC etc...) plus I've added Minimig sections to the forum area.

Handy facility, especially once I get myself a Minimig. Good work.

Any chance of colour coding the working status instead of having the wordy description? That spills out over many lines for me making the table very hard to read because the table isn't styled in any manner.

I don't think you need to print out "Kickstart" on every Kickstart version, that's surely implied.

Doesn't the link to view just show the information available in the table anyway? Could that link be wrapped around the game name, and the link column removed?

How about linking the Minimig core text to a description of the core? Also it might be useful to track history over cores in the future, to see if any games lose compatibility with future revisions, or when a game became compatible.

Could you add the "1 2 3 4 5 .." stuff to the top of the table as well, or preferably have something like "A-C, D-F, G-I, ..." instead?

@Hattig

Thanks for the suggestions. Ill start work on those when I can. The problem is the CMS used isn't as customisable as I would like it but ill see what I can do.

Progress update:

> Colour Coding of status: Possible and working on it

> Kickstarts started with Kickstart: Removed 99.9% of them

> Link column is surplus: Column removed and title of game made the link

> Link to Minimig core details: Tricky I think but might be possible (low priority for now)

> Add paging (1,2,3,etc...) to top or swap for A,B,C,etc...: Working on it. In the meantime changed the amount on a Page from 100 to 35.

Thanks again for your input.

Good work :)

It is copied straight from the Open Circuits wiki table. Boing4000 was the tester. I'm unable to verify this.

Awesome stuff, thanks tony

Can I say that the list (on opencircuits) is not up to date?

The following games running under the latest firmware (Jakub's), the one with supported ADF writing etc...work now:

Superfrog
Overdrive
Gods
Fire and Ice
The Chaos Engine 1 and 2
Bubba 'n' Stix
Alen Breed Tower Assault
Project X SE
Alien Breed Special Edition
Agony and others

Also keep in mind that, like with the original Amigas, you might want to use different Kickstarts for games that don't work with another version of the Kickstart and also that some cracked version behave differently from other cracked versions or the original copy.

@TheDaddy

Please feel free to update the database with your findings.

I think the best course of action when adding a game is to test it in as many combinations as you can until it either works (in which case post that config) or if it doesn't, post the config which showed most promise.

@TheDaddy

Thanx for the updated Database Compatibility list and also thanx for Minimig v1.1 update.

Please add the possibillity to make use of REAL Floppy disk drive like the Amiga Floppy Disk Drive from AmigaKit.com in a future version of Minimig or make a deal with Jens Schoenfeld of Individual Computers to incorporate his Catweasel technology to make use of a PC-Floppy disk drive and also to add a IDE HardDrive. Please consider my wish.

Just so it feels closer to a REAL classic Amiga as possible. However, I am quite surprised how far you already have re-created a classic Amiga .

So please keep up all your good work with your Minimig project.
