Thats fine, i'm finally, 25+ years later, hanging up the real Amiga and going emulation only. I have been going through all my old disks and lists and making sure i have everything i used to have available to me. In going through the lists i just noticed these few missing from HOL, where many other PD games were present. I thought HOL was the one "preferred" place for game information (as its linked with a search box at the top of this forum), but it seems the LemonAmiga database is more complete? It certainly has way more screenshots per game too...

Should i be more concerned about submitting this list (will need re-checking as Lemon does already have a bunch of them listed) to Lemon instead?

Cheers.

Thanks, the aim of the HOL has generally been commercial games but we have added some PD games as well.

I'll add these games to the queue.

Lemon Amiga has 43,616 game screenshots and the HOL has well over 110,000.

Those numbers don't indicate what i saw. What i saw on the two sites whilst searching for particular games, and where the games appeared on both sites, the Lemon page showed a long line of anywhere between 6-12 screenshots to what seemed to be only 1 or 2 on yours.

Maybe theres a "more screenshots" button i missed? I was kinda focused on just seeing if the games were there rather than looking at pictures, so maybe its me

Glad the list is useful though. Great site btw Very useful resource while i was going through my lists.

Which games were you looking at? There will be differences for individual entries.

HOL is more complete than Lemon.

HOL has 7050 entries and Lemon has 4400+ entries.

As Cody said, the number of screenshots per game varies between the sites; it depends on what's been submitted / processed for a game.

You can always help out, take screeenshot / information and add to both sites

Its just the impression i got based on the games i looked at. I'm happy to concede theres more on HOL than Lemon, not that its a competition i'm sure.

I can give you a short list of games i looked at but i guess its just a coincidence that the ones i did look at generally had fewer images. More obscure rarer games i guess.

In fact. No need. I see now it was just a case of "missing the extra pics" button, which i why i asked that question. I see now a tab for "Screenshot", and the first one i double checked, Act Of War, has 4 images not just 2. I think i was expecting a line of pics like Lemons pages, but only ever seeing 2 in the top section... Also upon clicking those intial two, i expected to scroll through others, but there never were any others.

If i could make a suggestion based on my experience here, an arrow at either end of the 2 initial pics to scroll to any others would be nice.
