A few suggestions

I noticed there is no 512k or 1MB catagory in HOL.
This was quite an important part of Amiga games history yet it's not there. Has it been discussed before? If so is there a reason why it's omitted?
Also would it not be possible to list games that are compatible with other CPU's?
Although many games ran fine on the 68000 others were written with accelerators in mind and will run on 020/030 etc.

There also isn't a Kickstart field. I guess the technical information aren't considered that important and quite hard to (reliably) confirm. Will ask Cody later about it.

True.
Didn't some games say "Kickstart V.XX" on the box as well. I'm sure I remember a few did.

As you can imagine it's a big job to retrospectively go back, add a new field, then populate that field for 5500 odd games!

I think I speak for others when I say we appreciate all the hard work.
I'm sure people would be willing to help though, especially if it adds to the whole picture.
