Demobase Amiga Discussion

Hi all,

It's been a few weeks so it's time to discuss it yes?

First:As you all know(i think) i'm gonna get married in 3 weeks!

So i don't know exactly how much time i can work on this project.....

Maybe you all heard of Gamebase vic-20?
I did the first release to encourage the community to continue
this project so after the GBVicV01 i talked to Mayhem and we agreed
that he would take over the project because he's the man for it!

That worked out well,there's gonna be a V2 very soon !!


Now for Demobase Amiga,,I am not leaving this project !

But you all know i cannot do this GIGANTIC project by myself ....

So it's a good thing too start talking about the project,
i surely gonna need some help with this one.

I hope you all are enjoying the first BETA release .

It's just a beginning cause there are lots of things that have to be done.

For exampl:

Edit Database for sorting Demo/Intro/Slideshow/Trackmo etc etc.
Edit Database for sorting Party's/Entries
Edit Database for Groups/Year

Sorting out the NON working Demos.
And lots of other info.

For the Time being i've continued configging demos(8100).

The thing that comes to mind is,Is it possible to work on this
Database simultaniously>?>I mean >can WE do things(jobs)
at the same time and then merge the MDB'S?

Or do we have to work in phases?(if i can find people for it).

What other things need to be done to make this Demobase
THE Demobase for the Amiga?

Please give me your input guys because i'm no pro.

LET'S START THE DISCUSSION>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Regards

Groups, year, party release/result are pretty cut and dry. I imagine most of the information can be looked up on pouet.net (or some other site). Type is a little more subjective. A demo that is one file loaded all at once sounds like an intro, but if it's large and contains several parts, it's more of a demo, that sort of thing. Best guess will probably be good enough.

But I think first would be deciding what categories there are to choose from and what qualifies for that category. For example, intros are small and a single file run from the command-line. Off the top of my head, there would be 4k, 64k, and misc intros. 4k and 64k specifically are limited in size, usually for parties. "Misc" is everything else. They should be named "Intro - 4k" "Intro - 64k" and "Intro - Misc" so when sorted, the intros are all together, as opposed to "4k Intro" and "Misc Intro" (or whatever...) A trackmo would be designed to load seamlessly off the disk as it runs..

There is a lot more to go with all that, but that's just a couple suggestions to get the ball rolling.. I still don't know what really constitutes 'pack mags' and 'disk mags.'

As for working on the project, I would think if we can get some folks together we could assign it by letter. Someone starts with the A's, someone with N's, etc and after a month, post results and changes. I'd think a time would need to be set, in case something comes up and someone isn't able to continue, new people want to help, etc. I don't know about merging the databases, but perhaps broken up like that by letters would help. (i.e. after a month, I upload a database of A-C entries, someone else uploads D-F, etc etc)

And, of course, this sounds a lot easier than it is. There's looking up the information (year, if it was in a party, etc) plus actually running it to be sure it works, to be sure it is what we think it is, what type of demo it is, etc...

Hi Paranoid,

Thanx for your intrest !

I agree on the part that we can all do something,
but a big question mark for me is the merging of mdb's.

Also some changes are needed in Gamebase itself,changing some text
etc.We need to make a GOOD plan of approach .

For the info i prefer Bitworld but if people have better ideas about
it please let me know.

For now i've not added Mags(packs) and crack intro's(Bitworld refers some
crack intro's as Intro so that has to be discussed also).

And finally we need a Team yes! dedicated people that will make this
project worth it.

As you already know i'm currently just configging as much demo's(intro's)
as possible,so i see this as my JOB at this time.


Regards
Sjakie43

Yes thanks for your hard work, and congratulations for your private luck! (maybe there may even be coming up a "sjakie-tje" [a small'un] someday soon? )

In Finnish this sounds much cuter: "pikku-sjakie"

Good luck with your DemoBase, the configured demo's work as a dream, but please increase the windowsize a bit, some demo's doesn't show the bottom lines in them as the windows is now.

Hope that you don't get cold feet's in the church now. Happy marriage sjakie43.

How can i be as a help in this project?

PS: I have been looking around for GameBase Vic-20 and now i read good news about it.

It's only a few of the demos that have to small window. Someone in the 'Favorite' section, music demos that doesn't show the time left of the playing monster module. It's only some lines of the demos that doesn't show in the bottom of the window. Will investigate more next week.

Sure thing, if you send me the latest update I'll delve into this "avec plaisir".

Maybe just fire the stuff into the zone, in order not to clog up anything in this thread

Read this; How do I get access to the zone?.

Afterwards click The Zone! (top-right of EAB), click Browse and locate the desired file you want to upload, type in a description and click the Upload button
