Hey everyone!

As part of my recent activity mapping all AGS games etc I've now generated a list: http://legacy.agsarchives.com/missing-dates.html for all games without a release date and would love any help I can get to find out when these games were released!

I'll be updating the list as games are updated with release dates! If you find that any of these entries are NOT a game please notify me about this so I can remove them from the list.

Hmm, may a search on forums help?

For example, agsId:140 "Mourir en Mer":

Yeah searching the forum is great for some of them, Mourir en Mer shouldn't even have been on the list as I already did that one..
I'm purely asking for help to try and take some workload off myself so I can spend more time on the more important parts :), so if anyone's up for searching the forums for these games to try and figure out when they were released please do so!

There was apparently an old masterlist of "all AGS games" up to 2002 that might have some of this information for the oldest games. The links are down (unsurprisingly), but perhaps some of the real old-timers still have it and could do a search for "biglist.xls" on their file systems?

Thanks for that one Cassiebsg!

Snarky, would be interesting to see if someone did have it, but I guess it's highly unlikely! :O

Oh yeah, that looks like it. Ah well. At least it establishes that all those games came out no later than 2002. I think it will be quite hard to figure out a precise date for games that predate the forum. (Unless it's possible to see when the game was actually compiled from the file?)

I guess the file creation date is at least the most accurate we can use if there are no other traces of a release date anywhere else....
