Tips

Tip #19

When performing a Keyword Search, you don't have to type the full name; just type a few words (if that's all you can remember) and click the magnifying glass to display all partial matches.

Tip #52

When adding credits that contain a "Jr." (like 'Robert D. Leonard, Jr.'), don't include the comma. If you do, it gets split up into 'Robert D. Leonard' and 'Jr.' as two different people. Simply omit the comma before the Jr. and it will get added correctly.

Hints, Tips, and Tricks aren't necessarily for cheat codes; in fact, if you have any helpful hint about a game, contribute it even if it isn't related to cheating. Lots of MobyGames users have contributed gaming strategies, alternate ending paths, and more. You don't have to be a cheater to use our tips!

Tip #23

Most attributes have a description of what they mean. So the next time you look quizzically at "CGA (Tweaked)", go ahead and click on it to learn what it means.

Tip #83

Scan cover art in a high resolution and make sure that the scans are completely straight, for the covers themselves as well as the game discs. Scan the art directly against the glass, out of the keep case or jewel case, as this will give a sharper image. Of course, when you keep your games sealed or shrinkwrapped, we make an exception.
