>>- Will be great to have a "First Release" field for all games.

I personally don't use the release field anymore since the most games stay up-to-date due package managers, integrated updaters or clients like steam

>>- A field for filter "Indie" game would be nice too, to see only big commercial...

also you can hide opensource games I don't think we need more categories

>>Auto import for all Steam Games will be nice. Steam got a API, and import all database will be easier than type all games.

not sure, for me steam games are still not linux games since you always need the client.

secondly, If you use steam you need no gamedb since you are browsing the steam shop.

>>And posibility to edit Game engine.

Of course.

>> http://www.lgdb.org/engine/adventure-game-studio who isn't a game replacement

there are many AGS games that are windows only so i would consider it a replacement engine

cheers, (=

Thanks for your input, i try to answer everything.

Disclaimer: All questions are serious, even though they might sound abrasive and defendant. ;)

> "- Will be great to have a "First Release" field for all games. Release field is not really revelant because is the Release of the last patch. (And possibility to use only a year, because for all game it's not easy to find exact date)"

Why would a first release field be relevant? We picked last release because it gives an idea how "active" or "current" the game is.

> "- A field for filter "Indie" game would be nice too, to see only big commercial games. Because if I want to play a racing game, I want to see Game like GRID Autosport not TuxRacer :)"

This is highly subjective and we need very robust criteria for that, i can definitely see the potential.

> "- Auto import for all Steam Games will be nice. Steam got a API, and import all database will be easier than type all games. http://store.steampowered.com/search/?&category1=998&os=linux (link is external). And field for Steam like "Controller support" can be useful."

We work with the api to get the prices, i can see this to be very useful also for the other sites we support. But someone has to do it and my holidays are over :(

> "Because yet the search got lots of options, but i don't think it's really usable."

Well, the main reason is the stupid internal search mechanism, we tried to work around that the best we could but it is definitely a weak point and much criticized in the past. but i just checked and there might be an easy to implement options around.

> "And posibility to edit Game engine."

ok, thats a first, but of course a valid point especially after this section got so much love from our tireless admin ssf.

If it is WTFPL license, should it be marked as "Open Source" instead of " Closed Source"?

OK, I have updated my post accordingly.

Aleph One is not a game, it's a game engine.

And it's run the 3 marathon games.

For R74, 2 new weapons + the settings for darkhold18 have been updated, (R73 brought new areas) so it works better with the zombie apocalypse mutator (added Z min and max settable limits so you can keep them spawning in a certain strata of a map). New weaps: chainsaw and clawhammer. Total number now: 90

If you have release 73 (or 72) and just want to upgrade by updating files in your XonoticChaosEsqueAnthology/data/ directory you need 2 packages:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/xmodchaosesque/?source=directory
zzzzzz999999_xmod-chaos-esque-xonotic-full_source_and_exec_binaries.pk3

http://sourceforge.net/projects/xmodchaosesquemedia/?source=directory
darkhold18.pk3 (remove old darkhold18)
