I'm still going through and entering my collection into the site, but I noticed a console missing from the list! Where's the love for the TI-99?!

I mean, kudos to you guys for getting some of the more ignored systems like the Pico and Wonderswan, but I got a stack of games here for the TI-99 that are unaccounted for! ;)

It's not missing anymore :)

Unfortunately, I don't think VGPC has the TI-99, so price data will not be available for it :(

The two systems you mentioned (Pico and Wonderswan) also have the same issue.

Damn, that was fast!
Thanks, and I'll post my list to the games to add page shortly!

Is there a way to add systems / games manually?

I have a ton of japanese games that I can't currently track between Famicom, Super Famicom, PS1, Dreamcast, Saturn, etc. I also have random things I've noticed like Boulder Dash XL 3D ( I mentioned this in another thread) I could link other games - like the original boulder dash.

I own a video game store and arcade, and would like to use our collection catalog for an easy way for customers to view our games.

Unfortunately, the only way to add new games / platforms is to request them through the forums. Our data model has morphed over the years and this process allows us to keep things as consistent as possible. We try to add requested games in a timely manner, though that can vary when life gets in the way

If you have a large list, you might also want to utilize the bulk import feature (if you haven't already) to get your games loaded quickly once they've been added to the database. (Note: You can only load one platform / format at a time, so if you go this route, you might want to keep your lists broken down as such.) If you have any questions, let me know!

Could I request a console to be added as well?

There is a family of sort of software-compatible systems released in Europe in the late 70's, with the first one known as the 1292 Advanced Programmable Video System. There is not much information about them, but most known one (and the one I have) is the Interton Electronic VC 4000.

Some links:

Oh, thanks, I didn't expect this to be so quick!

As for the games, I have found two sites that have the covers and some information for each game, but I don't know if the images are free for everyone to use.

Here are the links of you want to check them out:

For naming purposes, I think I'll prefix each entry with "Cassette X:", which is the same approach I took with the Fairchild Channel F games. For example: https://www.completionator.com/Game/Details/43108

The only weird thing here is there are a few games that weren't actually released and therefore don't have "official" box art that I can find, so we'll have to start without those. In any case, these are on my list to take care of, so hopefully I can get them all loaded in the next day or two

Not a console, but seeing how there are some flash games on this site. Can Adobe Flash be added as a platform for completions?

@Gogo - All of the VC 4000 games should be loaded now! I ended up loading the unreleased ones with some generic box art I threw together.

@SenorMexicano - Hmm...hadn't thought about that one before. I'm wondering if it should be a digital format for the PC / Windows platform instead of a platform itself?

Just saw them, thanks a lot! And now that I think about it, I should try to get the VC 4000 working when I get the chance, which will be in 6 months because of the exams. :(

@moho_00 - Yeah I was debating the same thing, but I feel like it might serve better as a platform rather than a digital format for PC / Windows since Flash is compatible with lots of OSs, including some mobile ones.
