Open Amiga Game Database - Open Beta

The Open Amiga Game Database is now in open beta This means that you can use the system without having to ask for an account. You still need to have a username/password for system while in beta, but you can quickly register an account yourself via this new account registration page: http://oagd.net/user/register.

The database contains configuration information for Amiga games. When used in combination with FS-UAE Launcher:
  • You can scan folders for floppy images, CD images and WHDLoad games (.adf, .ipf, .zip, .rar, .iso, etc).
  • You'll automatically get game entries in FS-UAE Launcher for detected games.
  • Covers and screenshots for the games will automatically appear in FS-UAE Launcher.
  • The system allows for multiple variants per game. For example different cracks, original .ipf images, WHDLoad version, etc.
  • The games are already configured correctly (*) and can be launched with the press of a button.

After having created an oagd.net account, you can enable the database beta feature in FS-UAE launcher: http://fs-uae.net/database.

The online database is not limited to be used by only FS-UAE Launcher, but this is the only known client to use the database at this time.

(*) Of course, some games may not be configured correctly yet, but that's the point of the online database. If you discover a problem, you can either submit a fix yourself, or report it and let someone else fix it. Either way, the corrections will be synchronized to your FS-UAE Launcher as well as to other FS-UAE Launcher users.

that's great to hear

I only spotted (and reported) a couple of issues with save disks and not enough expanded ram for a couple of games, but everything else runs like a dream

now, when can we expect a nice gui like this:
