Talk:List of fan-games

Is it only me who thinks the "completed, in-progress, abandoned" frame menu is a bit obsolete with this list. I'd rather see a direct link to this list when clicked on fangames, just like for mods. Maybe it could be rearranged and merged into one group, still titled "fan-made games" but with choices "Vorticons Mods; Galaxy Mods; Other Mods; Fangames". Tulip 22:05, 13 November 2009 (GMT)

Commander Keen 1 remastered

Shouldn't this be removed from the list? One of the requirements to be on this list is that the game is actually released. And this game does not meet this requirement. Yet. --K1n9 Duk3 18:42, 20 August 2010 (GMT)

Assuming a release isn't imminent, and there is somewhere else it can be listed instead (like in-progress mods) then feel free to update the list. -- Malvineous 17:48, 23 August 2010 (GMT)

A fangame template?

I think we should have a fangame template, similar to the one for mods. It should have the following items:

  • Creator (or Author whatever sounds better)
  • Release Date
  • Type (Platformer, RPG or something else)
  • Created with (CNC, KNP, from scratch)
  • OS (Win, DOS, dpmi)
  • Download link
  • Other Fangames in this Series (like in mod template, ommitted if blank)
  • Website (also ommitted if blank)
  • Status (Completed, in progress, abandoned)

And the usual title screen/gameplay images. I've got no experience in making such a template, so I put this suggestion out for the more skilled WikiAdmins here.Tulip 22:14, 13 November 2009 (GMT)

Issues downloading Dopefish Lives!

I tried downloading Dopefish Lives!, but whenever I attempt to extract the files, my computer can't extract "dopefish.dat", which is essential for the installation. I just get a "0x80004005: unspecified error". I also tried extracting with WinRar, but that gives me a pop-up message saying the aforementioned file is corrupted. Is anyone else experiencing this problem or am I the unlucky one? Quinton (talk) 07:21, 30 May 2022 (GMT)

It's a corrupted file apparently inherited from Spatang/DOS Classics. Fortunately, has the ZIP in non-corrupted form ( I'll replace the file by the end of the week. --Grandy02 (talk) 14:28, 30 May 2022 (GMT)
The corrupted file has been replaced, you should be able to extract it without problems now. --Grandy02 (talk) 10:19, 6 June 2022 (GMT)
