Multi-tasking TG Research WiP

TG Research joined forces this week and attempted to gang up on the Atari 2600 platform. Rule edits are going well for this and we’re making good progress as a team, and we plan to coordinate our working hours next week so that we can solve problems as we find them and continue to make headway.

The cosmetic makeover of the --Speedrun platform also continues, and 1367 game images have been uploaded to date, and typos in titles are also getting fixed. As with the Atari 2600 this will be an on-going job to run parallel with that platform’s workload.

We have a slot coming up with IT to fix problems that are beyond our ability to solve, so we have been compiling lists from various spreadsheets to come up with priorities. Hope to see progress on this soon.

@Barthax highlighted a potential problem with the Odyssey2/Videopac platform, which currently has games that released in the US under US names. Games in other parts of the world have either regional variations in their titles or are known as something completely different. Ideally, this should be reflected somewhere in the rules although as it’s not technically part of the ruleset it really needs its own dedicated field. Could be a can of worms. Thanks to Barthax for producing a spreadsheet document all the regional variations, it’s much appreciated.

That’s it for this week, take care
