Hello all,

We have a pretty big announcement to make today. Our December update has been delayed a bit, but it was hopefully worth the wait. We have been talking about this in the past, but as of today, a first part of the Atari Legend project has gone open source. From now on, any developer who is interested can download the full database (except the sensitive user related data) and all the screenshots, boxscans and other graphics used for their own project.

You can find the download link at the front page in the 'Open Database' tile. We are planning a full blown API this year, but this will take some more work. We will also be updating our database structure this year, to further enhance the project so it will be able to handle all the different versions of game releases ever made. That is for later ;-) A full technical analysis of the DB structure will be made available in the future. Should you be interested in using it and have questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with us.

So this also means that all user contributions from now on will be shared with the rest of the world. All your efforts will never be lost!

Also in this months release, we have drastically updated our CSS files, so if there are layout glitches on your system (wether it is a pc, tablet or phone), let us know.

Cheers

12 years ago I wrote some reviews.

Maybe I should write some more.

Loved that game, one of the few I had completed. :) And exactly as you, it had started my interest in C.V. games in general so yes, Ween was my next finished one just after that (loved that game and even my girlfriend did!)

I've been here! Checking in every now and again, and occasionally posting.

Life has me pretty busy. I enjoy writing reviews though. I find it relaxing. I've had an idea kicking around in my mind for a site where I simply review menu disks. Take a group and review at least one game on every disk they've put out. But I don't have the time for it.

But posting the odd review here and there to AL is something I might do again.

Both my STs are in closets for lack of space -- one in the US, one in the UK. But I do have Steem SSE synced to a monitor that can do 50hz thanks to Steven Seagal's efforts. And I've got a MiST up and running in a corner of the home office. So I do get to play with Atari stuff, a little.

Great to hear you are still playing Atari. Reviews are always welcome. The more, the better ;) So if you ever feel like it, just use the 'writ your own review' feature on AL, it should be easy to use...
