I'm not sure if there's a single "best" way of doing this. Already it's a bit of a headache at times to recognize these unofficial versions from the "official" ones, especially since they have a strange habit of changing titles somewhere along the waydave wrote:Normally magazine/book program listing are put as whatever platform is listed in the book/magazine and ports ignored. I suppose generic "should work on everything" type listings should have a general platform; but normally most books/magazines listings have them written on a specific platform and conversion notes are printed separately.Eriorg wrote: I wonder what we should put in the "Platforms" info of the game page, in cases like that?
Introducing a "should work on everything" tag would solve some problems and create new ones, as some BASIC variants are more compatible than others and some program listings would require larger changes to make them work on some platforms than others.
So I'm with Dave here - there usually should be a mention of what platform the game was designed for in the magazine. Still, at the end of the day, if such games are tagged for more than one platform, no great harm is done (I hope!)
