Wrong links in HoL

Im not sure - but i assume its the correct forum to post this stuff.
I found few mistakes/errors on Hol pages.

Taekwondo Master/Super Taekwondo Master (1996, Mirage) has a Lemon link directing to a Lemon entry about Taekwndo (Anco 1987), two different games (developer, publisher, year (87 vs 96), everything). The fun part is - the link on Lemon page about Anco game is directing to HoL Mirage game ...

Evil's Doom is listed as "unrealesed" but some posters on EAB forums already posted it isnt the case - look here for: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?...=Evil%27s+Doom
maybe someone could confirm this - was Evil's Doom ever distribued directly by Olympia? I rmember reading posts of people who bought this game directly from the developer. If yes - then the entry should be changed.

HoL is a great project - best database about Amiga games on the net, i really enjoy it - thanks for all the effort put in this project.

Are you sure - i read posts (at least two different people, maybe three) who claimed that they bought the game directly form the developers (Olympia) - it was never distribued by Titan, but if it was sold by the devlopers directly - then it was released imo.
IF its only an "amiga myth" - then maybe it is worth mentioning on the HoL page that a beta version has leaked out - can be found on the net, and altough bugged is fully playable.

It was "sent" to some people but it was never "released" so that you can buy it .... so the Info on HOL is correct on this one

IF a title was commercialy SOLD (not "sent" as you wrote) - then it was released imo - even if distribution was very limited... Otoh maybe it never happened (or my definition of "released" is wrong)
Another point - i saw on CAPS home page they are looking for it... so i assume they consider it released... (or is CAPS preserving unreleased titles too ?)

well i guess this goes from what you define "released" as. For me Evil's Doom was released as you could buy the game with the box and manual from the game developers. only the very early people to send money to them got a copy, i was just too late and got asked if i wanted to be sent the Special edition for free instead when it was out. i said i would wait for that ....which i never got

So it was released with box and manual for a very short time. This is different from "unreleased" or "leaked beta".

"Evil's Doom SE" was unreleased though

Yep. Just as long as it is commercially duplicated, or obtained from a trusted source (the master disk from the author for example).
