Sites covering system requirements

Is there one or more decent sites that specifies the hardware requirements of every Amiga game? (eg: CPU, Chipset, RAM, OS, etc.) I don't have the original game boxes.

BTTR has a decent list of what you need.

Generally speaking, I find I usually only need 2 configs; one for ECS and one for AGA.

ECS - 68000, A500 speed, Full ECS, 1MB chip, 100% sound, Kick 1.3, 1 floppy drive (some games care)

AGA - 68020, Fastest speed, AGA, 2 MB chip, 2MB fast, 100% sound, Kick 3.0

These two configs have run 99% of everything I've thrown at them. The AGA config you probably wouldn't need to modify but some OCS/ECS games get damned picky about RAM or Kick version.

I wouldn't go for 1Mb chip though, some games require fast ram and nothing else so 512k chip 512k fast is ok for them but I guess they are in that %1 minority.

I have configurations set up for A500, A500+, A600, A1000, and A4000, and I have no problems running the gmes I already have. In all my configs, I didn't use 68EC020, since using the CPU, I get nothing but a blank screen. I don't know what games require fast ram.

One of the games I have, Arabian Nights, only require 1MB chip. No more, no less. I don't know what games require fast ram.
