ADD INFO TO IMDB ABOUT STAR CONTROL!
« on: January 22, 2005, 08:33:42 pm »

This is x-posted to the Cafe as well...

Hi all,

This is Arianna again, with a request from any and all SC1 and 2 fans with a wealth of knowledge on the topic of the games.

I noticed recently that imdb.com (the internet's main database for films and television) added videogames to their listings. They have Star Control listed, and Star Control 3 (but who cares -- oops who said that?) and I've been told that Star Control 2 is on its way to being listed, but the info on SC1 is really rather askew. It credits almost no one and has no trivia. Is this any way to reflect one of the most influential games of our time?

So my request is that people bombard imdb with new info on the game. At the bottom of the Star Control page it says Update information. Anyone familliar with the updating process would be specially helpful, because it can get complicated, but you're all smart individuals, I'm sure you could figure it out.

Add credits, random facts, reviews, anything valid that you can think of.

And when Star Control 2 comes up, remember to add info to that as well. It just seemed unfair to me that Extreme Disney Skate got a page but SC2 didn't.

Thanks everyone! I know this means a lot to the whole TFB team!

Sounds like a plan! I know that we have the Sc2 credits list in the Ultronomicon somewhere, so I'll definitely be adding that once they create an entry on IMDB. For right now, I'll see what I can do about submitting Sc1 box art.

Time to break out my notes.  I have some very detailed notes on the rules of gameplay for SC1 when I had my brief foray trying to update Orz's TACT.
If I can't find them, I can easily recreate them by opening up my legal copy of SC1 in dosbox.   Grin

Hum, I much prefer MobyGames for all my game information needs.

Okay, I've submitted the bulk of the SC2 PC credits, PC box art, and links to PONAF + UQM. Let's see if they'll take it!
