Add a new info in the authorlist

It is a bit frustrating that musicians and sound effect artists are mixed :

Take for instance the game Gunboat:

here is the description in HOL: http://hol.abime.net/2809

here is the description in Lemon: http://www.lemonamiga.com/?game_id=2116

as you can see, Lemon includes a separate entry for Sound Effects.

Seems logical to me as some coders/gfxians are sometimes credited in Hol as musicians when they actually only added some fx to the games.

regards

IMHO the best solution would be simply to adjust the HOL category from "Musician" to "Sound". Having separate artist fields for musicians and sound effects would cause a lot of headaches. While some games distinguish artists for music and sound effects, lots of others simply credit all such artists under "Sound" (or simply don't list music/sound/any credits at all!).

I think that the best solution would be to keep the general sections but have the option to add extra, searchable detail if available.

Not sure this is on RCK's TODO list. Regardless, there are many more high priority features that HOL would benefit from and have been requested by the team and users alike that need to be worked on first. From a coding POV even simple features are not easily implemented at times. I don't think many people appreciate that. Ultimately RCK has the final word as he's the poor bugger who has to code new or enhanced features for HOL.
