Brand new Lemon Amiga website

Fellow EAB members, on behalf of Kim Lemon I would like to inform you, that:

A brand new and greatly improved Lemon Amiga website has just been launched!

Actually I never thought this would happen. It's been an amazing 15+ years since I built the Lemon Amiga website and a lot has happened since then, both technically and in life in general.

To sum it up, all I wanted to say is - check out the new Lemon Amiga website and enjoy.


Keep retro gaming,

Kim Lemon



So, what's new?



Design

  • Responsive mobile-first design, while still keeping the classic 2004 feel.
  • Taking advantage of 4K/Retina displays.

Games

  • Added playable MP3 game music for 1732 games.
  • Type-sensitive live game search.
  • Improved Advanced games search.
  • Modern screenshot slider with swipe on touch devices.
  • Support for hires 640x512 screenshots.
  • All intro videos are now lossless WebM with MP4 fallback for Safari (OS X/iPhone/iPad).
  • Now using AJAX for improved multitasking. Rate, comment, watch video, listen to music, etc on the same page without interruption.
  • Game Top- and Worstlists can now be filtered by category.
  • A new WYSIWYG review editor.
  • Tightly integrated all LemonTube video reviews into the games pages.
  • Better logic for position of elements on games pages.
  • Users rating is now next to users comment.
  • Now showing WHDLoad installer author and date.
  • Now showing review scores (graphics, music, playability, overall) directly on games page.

Community

  • Upgraded from phpBB 2.0 to 3.3
  • Improved the phpBB site integration with login and profile option in the top right corner.
  • User actions (votes, comments, favourites, originals, completed games, reviews etc.) are now visible in the users forum profile

General improvements

  • SSL certificate and forced https
  • All code has been modernized and large parts have been re-written from scratch.
  • Moved to Digital Ocean cloud servers and upgraded to PHP 7.4.
  • Added Schema/Open Graph data to games and reviews to display more interesting snippets in search engines and social media.
  • Removed all dead links in the Links section
  • Overall clean-up and revision of content by updating or removing obsolete information.

The "mobile first" got me worried, many such transitions are quite awful, but I must admit you guys did a stellar job here. It looks just like the old one

There was also this thread by Octopus66 on the same topic:
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=105337

But since this one has more details, I have locked Octopus66's thread and pointed to here. Sorry Octopus66, I believe it is the better option. Feel free to PM me if you want to discuss about it.

Of course! I was surprised there was no official post earlier today. But I realise now it was due to the post passing through moderation.

Very nice. Always had a soft spot for the site and have been there many times over the years. Don't think I ever was a member though.

Which browser do you use?

Delete LemonAmiga cookies, that will solve this.
