Amiga Lore Public Beta Testing

Today I'm releasing a new site called Amiga Lore for public testing on the EAB.

Amiga Lore is a companion site to the Hall of Light and includes such features as ratings, lists, reviews, comments, articles, interviews and so on. Therefore, it deals with the subjective side of the Amiga whereas the HOL is more objective. It is powered by data from the Amiga Magazine Rack and the HOL.

I'm also hoping to replace the basic abime.net portal with Lore. Furthermore, I've incorporated the Amiga Games That Weren't and Amiga Point of View sites into the site.

Please test the site and send me bug reports, feedback and feature requests.

The following points should be kept in mind:

- The site makes heavy use of JavaScript (through the ExtJS library) so it won't work on real Amigas (sorry!).

- I'm useless at design. If any designer wants to help make the site look better then it'd be welcome (although Metin Seven of Hoi fame did some excellent header banners for the site, which do look great).

- There is a lot of missing content on the site because most of it is user-generated.

- If you are logged into the EAB (or the AMR) you should be logged into Amiga Lore and vice versa because the sites share the Abime cookie. The username and password is the same as on the EAB.

- Watch out for bugs!

- Here's a bug report thread and a feedback and ideas thread.

Here are a few ideas to get started with the site:

Graftgold - Amiga Alchemy

In Lore's Graftgold retrospective we speak to Steve Turner, Andrew Braybrook, Jason Page, Gary J. Foreman, Lee Banyard, David O'Connor, Jose Doran, Iain Wallington and Darran Eteo.

Individual interviews with the Graftgold people can be found in the interview browser:

The Story Behind Hunter

Lore talks to Paul Holmes about the creation of Hunter. The full interview can be found here:

Game ratings

Go to the game browser or game entries and start rating games!

Game comments

In a game entry add a comment. For example, go to Cannon Fodder, click the Comments tab and click "Submit a Comment".
