Cheatmania, nice freeware "fruit machine" with dark climates and sub-games.

Thanks very much for providing some screenshots and info. for the game! :great The HOL team has received several requests in the last year or so to create new entries for PD/shareware/unreleased games, but you're one of the few people who have bothered to try and assist with the game requests they've made.....so big kudos to you! :cool

I have to say that I really enjoyed the cool music in CheatMania and that it's a pity that Stylon Crew limited themselves to producing only a few stylish versions of old classic games on the Amiga. Anyway, here's the new HOL entry for CheatMania and you have been included in the contributors list for your efforts!

I realise that I've recently requested 3 x [unreleased] games to be added to HOL here: Please add these [unreleased] games to HOL ;-)

Usually I would provide screenshots etc. but have been a bit snowed under with other projects of late...

Anyway, no excuses, I'll create some shortly ;)

@DamienD
No rush mate - I'm snowed under every which way atm. Besides, I really wanted to pay credit where credit was due! :)

It doesn't hurt to remind people, though, that game requests are much more likely to be catered for if some assistance with screenshots, credits etc. is provided, especially with non-commercial games. At the end of the day HOL is a hobby project (which often is a lot of hard work and hosted free-of-charge by RCK), and team members do have real lives, commitments etc. to contend with.

Anyway, going back to CheatMania......highly recommend that people give it a whirl, if only just to listen to the cool music!!

As am I my friend; work commitments, coming home after long days at work, researching / adding / configuring new games to my collection, replying to / undertaking numerous requests from various members via PM for this and that :p

Like you guys at HOL; myself and prowler have been taking care of EAB by ourselves for well over a year now without much help from any other Global Moderators / Moderators really :sad

@Damien
Yep, it's why I've never had any great desire to be a mod......I'd never get anything done on HOL/AMR etc. and I suspect it would start to interfere with real life eventually. Kudos to you for putting your hand up again for it! :great :cool

Unfortunately, mods are a necessary evil since it's quite clear that self-moderation just doesn't work on net forums period (it sure didn't in usenet newsgroups prior to them!). I was very glad you put your hand up again for the job - I remember being on the verge of sending RCK an email expressing outright frustration concerning the EAB anarchy that was going on at the time.

It's just a great pity that important things like moderation get left to two or three key individuals, while others in the larger group seem to disappear for long periods in a given year (or completely, never to be seen or heard from again, after the initial novelty has worn off! <----- common occurrence with HOL/AMR recruits too BTW ;-p).

...yup, it's a thankless task and always fun when you get abusive PMs from people calling you a f$%king moron etc. like I had very recently.
