Gamebase Amiga 2.3
 
Hi,

while working on completing my Gamebase Amiga collection, I've added several new screenshots and game files along the way.

Belgarath kindly allowed me to share my "version 2.3" with you. You can find it on the EAB FTP server in /Gamebase Amiga 2/.
There is a .ZIP file available, or you can just download what you like from the Amiga 2.3 subfolder.

To ease the load on the server, you can also use this mega.nz link:

This is fantastic. Thanks twitek! And obviously thanks Belgarath for the enormous amount of work he's put into it.

I hope you don't mind but I have some questions:

- Is there a changelog for this update? ie. Is it a couple of games added/updated or dozens?
- Do you have plans to continue it or is this a one-off?
- Do you verify games to be the best possible versions? I know Belgarath and DamienD always verify games as best as they can. Just curious if you're doing that too, or if you're just selecting anything that looks like it might be the best version to include.

Even if you stop here, I'm still happy and greatly appreciate you taking the time to update GBAmiga :)

There is no changelog. When i started, my goal was to find all missing files and complete my Gamebase 2.1. Two days ago i found the "Amiga 500 - 1200" Gamebase by dax, which would have been an easier starting point. Oh well...
Statistics/no. of files:
Code:

        dax2.0  2.1  2.3
Games    3013  3036  3152
Tunes    2201  2201  2201
Pictures  4793  3195  3323
Extras  10747 11225 11232

dax added 2916 pictures from HOL to his GB. I asked at HOL if i may use them too, but no reply yet.

TLDR; 116 game files added, 128 screenshots, 7 extras.

Am i as meticulous as Belgarath and DamienD? Maybe not. That's not up to me to decide.
In the end, we all can only choose from what is available to us.
