You might be correct.. What I mean I have seen them use SKR in the odd intro.

Also SKR makes more sense in the renaming as it is 3 letters.. tho changing to SR is not an issue for me..

[Idoru] can you comment on this pls

Methinks Tosec should use the abbreviations the scene used for themself. I'm confused, beeing part of the scene i used SR as short for Skid Row and see my post #1: "The Lightforce" used TLF and Tosec made LFC out of them. Maybe this should be changed, at least i say let's discuss this here.
I'm also keen on to know the abbreviation of Ackerlight, anyone?

The problem with the abbreviations is not ALL groups used them!

I personally think we should use the scene abbreviations where they exist but for others I think abbreviations should be made to reduce the length of filenames..

This is just my tuppence worth tho!

As my last message in this thread awhile back stated :-

Quote:
The abbreviations used were all selected from looking at various places such as Exotica Scenery & cracktros/intros/text etc on the disk images themselves. The idea being that only groups who had an "accepted" abbreviation of their name (eg. they used it themselves in intros etc) were abbreviated, rather than just making up abbreviations for random groups.
As mentioned in another post above, proof was sought to confirm the list (acceptable proof being usage in a cracktro etc) which was updated some but was lost due to HD failure - so we're pretty much at zero again for the proof side of things...

So, the full list needs to be proven and some extra abbreviations need to be added. Not everything should have an abbreviation IMO - particularly some I've seen mentioned like Band/Angels - they're not exactly long :P There are also some initials used for group names that as of the last available list don't have a full group name attached.

Things like this can be done by pretty much anyone. eg, when you load a game to play it just check out any cracktro/intro/trainer/greetings first & note down any abbreviations used in text/graphics/mouse icons etc etc. Post these things to this thread. I'm going to setup a sister (sticky) thread now with a group list & mark when things are confirmed/corrected - don't post to that thread yourself to maintain it's clarity.

I realise my contribution has been pretty minimal to any of the TOSEC threads on here lately, but I just don't have much Amiga motivation atm. I'm sure it'll return, but I've got other things to do offline that are more important/interesting to me just now and the small amount of time I'm spending online lately is spent doing normal things or renaming on some of the other systems I'm involved with.

Thanks to everyone who keeps posting corrections/suggestions/constructive bitching in the meantime, I will go through the corrections threads shortly and will go through the rest when time/interest allows. I will probably edit most of the threads in the TOSEC section when I go through them - just as a marker so I know what's been looked at as there's now quite a lot of threads

Thanks Adderly. Yeah I even remember that release. A friend of mine from my QTX days did this as a private request for me cos I loved the game and we decided since other people were releasing HD patches to put it out.

LFC - The Lightforce (see my post #1 on this thread) is wrong, they used TLF.
Proof from file: Leatherneck (1988)(Microdeal)[cr LFC][h MCC][t +2 LFC].adf BE0D6637
-> TLF used as mousepointer!

If BBS release-names are proofs too you can add the ones from my thread above, i listed only groups with more than one release with the same abbreviation there!

We also have ex-scene members here, for me it's proof enough if they post their old groupnames and abbreviation...

I'd rather use an actual intro/gfx etc. from a release as proof than a scene release filename - particularly if they disagree with each other

After seeing TRSI a few times I got curious why TDT wasn't mentioned.
The only releases I've seen of TRSI were TDT-TRSI releases.(The Dream Team - Tristar Red Sector Incorporated)
And what about FBI? (Future Brain Incorporated)

There are going to be lots of groups not included atm, the list originaly only covered games cracked/hacked/trained/intro'd & currently in the TOSEC dats & that list is pretty old now too - and the current list isn't even the complete list that was done it was sourced from an old backup.

TDT was a PC outfit.. when TRSI first moved onto PC they hooked up until later when TRSI went "solo" on PC...

Bit like Razor 1911 and Skillion and other outfits...

Considering the fact that the Amiga 500 and 2000 weren't released untill 1987, I think the fact that I never owned an Amiga isn't THAT strange.
