New Website Features!

New Website Features!

As already mentioned in the previous post it is time to sum up all the new features and info on the website and I will walk through them a little. Most pages content are the same with some exceptions of course. To start with: a totally new look!

Homepage
The blog will be mainly the place to be and the homepage. There the most news will be found as well.  For example: the archives and hot sales and statistics etc. Those can be found on the sidebar on the Blog.

About
Contains 3 subpages with information about the Website, about me and About porting.

Blog

Game Ports
This is the place to be to search for your favorite games and wrappers. This is the index for all the game "Genres" like: Action, Strategy, Adventure, etc. Here you can choose the specific genre and check if the game you are looking for is in the list or to find out what games are ported at the moment and when found to access the specific game page.

The Game pages!
This is the most important change and also the most work! Over 700 gamepages are created, all with its own slider and video. The result is in my eyes amazing!  Everything can be found on the same page without extra tabs. The gamepages contain a slider with a video and download link or link to a Mac gamepage on Gamersgate or GOG.com, Game info with even screenshots, to get an immediate impression of the game.

Forum
A direct link to the existing forum which already had a graphical makeover.

Projects
Contains 3 subpages to the Amiga, DOS and MSX Project pages.

FAQ
Contains Frequently asked questions page + subpage "Wineskin video Tutorials" page. The FAQ page explains itself and on the Winskin Video Turotials page, you can find all kind of instruction videos regarding Wineskin and more.

Contact me
The way to contact me with non-technical (Forum is created for that stuff) questions.

For the rest there are some changes under the hood. For example copy paste protection (seems that there are basterds who like to copy paste my work), and login posibilities for specific people which will do in the near future blog posts for the site and some other things. Explore the site and let me know what you think about it. Also if you see some wrong links or dead links, contact me straight away using form and let me know so I can fix it. Reporting this stuff is highly appreciated and if the same person does this regularly will be even rewarded with a free Gamersgate game! There will be soon a new video tour as well of this new website, for the new comers.
