New Fields

Recommended Posts

wirtual82    7

Fields important to me:

1. Theme

2. Other available platforms a game was released on, so -  "Conversion hardware" or "Conversions" field

3. Setting field (this is a field that Mobygames offers)

You could also add Perspective (top-down etc.), related games, scrolltype (sinlge screen), dimension, viewpoint fields.

I would love this or an "exclusive" tick box to be there this way people can mark if a game was exclusive to a system.

I'd like for that exclusive tick box to be automatically ticked if it was an exclusive, which of course would require work to the database to have that info there in the first place. But that would be so cool, then another option on top of that which allowed you to tick under each platform "display exclusives only".

Right exactly.  If it's ticked in the DB it should be auto populated in launchbox/big box and even be a sort by option.

M-6502 said The multiplayer mode options seem good. Additional field suggestions: - Alternate Title (as mentioned above) - Media (Floppy, Cassette, Cartridge, CD, DVD, etc.) - Manual

Back in the day I had a Commodore 64 and me and every one I knew had cassettes only. Those fancy (and huge) disc drives weren't common in Europe I believe. I am adding a bunch of C64 games to the database, but there is no image type for cassette currently. It gives me that extra nostalgia boost when I see one... Pirates! Would love to have this option.

Also there would be great to have "Cassette Case" as Image Type too.

Im not sure if this has been mentioned already but it would be great to have a  new field for fruit machines like you have for pinball machines as it would also help to keep the arcade game looking organised and tidy
