Abandonware DOS in 2022: more games, more everything
Unfortunately, server costs just went up. And I mean really UP: five times what I used to pay. I'm looking for other ways to host all of it, but I'm confident I'll find a way to pay a little less. That said, I'm really grateful to all of you who donated a few dollars to help me go on. I'm still managing Abandonware DOS by myself in my spare time (and I do have a full time job) but I'm not whining: I like to do it.
Here's a list of what I did on Abandonware DOS in 2022.
- Added A LOT of DOS games (obviously)
- Added a few games for Linux
- Added more than a few games for Macintosh
- Started an Instagram profile
- Transcribed a lots of reviews taken from old video games magazines
- Re-designed the keyword-related pages and reviewed almost every theme and keyword: more descriptions, more games, more of everything
- Rewrote the code for the charts and the voting system
- Rewrote the code for everything concerning keywords
- A code rewrite of the whole website: I want to upgrade everything to PHP 7
- Find a way to create an "advanced search" feature
- Change host as soon as possible and find new ways to host games
That's all. Thank you again for the support; I appreciate that and you make me feel I'm not the only one to adore these old games!
