MobyGames News

LOTS of new (old) platforms added to MobyGames!
Largely because Vedder is adding a mountain of old games in his attempt to document early titles better (look at 1976's much-augmented list, for example) Kabushi has added all of the below game platforms recently: PCs: Altair 8800, HP 9800, Intel 8008, Intel 8080, KIM-1, Microtan 65, SWTPC 6800, Tektronix 4050, Zilog Z80; Consoles: Bubble, Interton Video 2000, Tele-Spiel ES-2201, Telstar Arcade. And Vedder has added more since then which he can mention in the comments to this news story if he wants, haha.

Oh, and we added the Pokitto too! Go us!

New MobyGoal (& apologies for downtime!)
Thanks to everyone for bearing with us through some site downtime a couple of days ago. Our (slightly old site) had its 'task manager' malfunction, so it required some complex surgery from Reed & special guest helper Brian H! Seems to be working now, but feel free to post or PM if you see anything amiss.

Secondly, we took advantage of the editing to add a new stretch MobyGoal - 7,000 iPhone games. Yep, we know they're not such a popular area to add for contributors, but there are a lot of smartphone games played by millions and not yet documented, so we thought we'd ask nicely!

Some more great MobyGames users (& their milestones!)
Following up from the last post about this, and noting some of the congratulations mentioned in the news comments, wanted to point out:

- Rainer S, who does an amazing job of adding cover art for German titles in particular, is now over 100k MobyPoints, one of a select few (less than 15!) to ever do that.

- The incredibly methodical Piltdown Man is now over the 150k points mark - thanks to him for adding a lot of obscure PC shareware games of recent.

Thanks to these two, and please post other user milestones in the comments as you see them!

Shout-out: FAM's excellent game cover additions!
We wanted to give a shout-out to one of our newest contributors, FAM, who has been adding all kinds of rare game packaging art since he started contributing in February.

For example, he's adding nicely scanned original covers for rare PC Engine CD games, as well as weird Amstrad CPC games & lots more besides. Look through his full contributions to date here.

Tip Of The Day

Cruisin' for Contribution Points, Volume Two: If you own a game that doesn't have screenshots in MobyGames, take a few -- they're worth 2 points each. Even if a game already has screenshots, you can still get your screenshots accepted if they are better than what we have on file. What's better than what we have? Examples include shots that have actual gameplay in them instead of just an intro cinematic; shots that don't give the ending of the game away; shots that are encoded properly (320x200 games saved as 4/16/256-color GIF instead of a 640x400 JPG). The last section of the FAQ has some pointers on taking screenshots.   more tips
