Amstrad Mania
« on: 18:37, 03 April 09 »
 Amstrad Mania is a new Amstrad Gamebase created by me containing mainly English language games when available. It contains over 2300 entries, and most games have multiple screenshots. This is only the first version and will be updated when i get some time.


Here is a link on Zshare to obtain a copy:-

http://www.zshare.net/download/58135157819c76fa/


Please let me know of any problems such a bugs etc and i will try to fix then in the next release

It requires the Gamebase frontend version 1.2 to work, which is available from www.gb64.com

Where did THAT come from? :) :) :)

I am using Office 2007. It convers it automatically, I load it and then... what do I open? There's no forms, only the tables, and the screenshots do not show - or the file links...

Hi!

I can only open it. I don't know, how to start programs, how to watch screenshots etc...
(I also don't know much about Access)

But I converted some files... Maybe this helps
Unzip into Amstrad_Mania folder and overwrite the old files...

To use this gamebase you will need to goto www.gb64.com and download, and install the gamebase frontend v1.2.  Then extract the amstrad mania archive into the installed gamebase folder.  Then run the gamebase frontend and it will load up.  You may have to set up some of the paths for screenshots, games etc.

Thanks, this works for me.

For all: Do this:
Download the first 2 applications from here:
http://www.gb64.com/downloads.php
Install them (normal install path is c:\Program Files\gamebase\)
Copy the Amstrad_Mania RAR file into this gamebase folder and unrar it there.
Replace the .ini files with the files I attached in folder Amstrad_Mania
Have fun!

If someone wants to download this gamebase and host it off their Amstrad Based website, i dont have any problems with that.  Im hoping to upload it to the http://www.underground-gamer.com/ website tonight as a torrent file.

Well, why UG? It's a closed tracker, why not release it on TPB or Mininova instead?

Darn, dying to try it out, but still nothing :(

Cannot download this torrent.
If you want, write me a PN and I will give you FTP access to my server to upload.

Hi!

In order for someone to download your torrent, you have to seed it!!! 'Cause MN says that there are neither leechers nor seeders!

Don't give credit to what torrent sites say at the torrent page. I just downloaded it, it said 0/0 and yet there are 1/5 users. I'll try seeding for as long as possible, or maybe uploading it to Hotfile/Megaupload/Rapidshare?

I am also preparing download.
You will be able to DL the complete archive @ fullspeed  ;)
Only limitation:
DL is only for registered members, to avoid too much useless traffic.

Archive is still uploading, so just have a bit patience...
