I was wondering if I could get a database export from abandonia.
Why am I asking?
I've got a shi*tload of games, mostly old ones, and recently I wrote a script to enter them all in a database, which makes managing everything a whole lot easyer.
I would like to add some extra stuff, such as publisher, year, if it runs with dosbox/wine ect.
To do this manually would take forever (if not longer).

I would be willing to donate 25 euro in return.

For all clarity: I will only use this information for my personal (non-public) database, and will not be submitted to other sites, or use it for commercial reasons.

you mean the games list only ?
or do you want the reviews as well ?

The list is discussable.
The Reviews probably not.

The list (with things like publisher ect) is the most important.

Reviews would be nice if possible, bit it woudn't be an issue if it woudn't be possible

well that list would have to be created for you.
You could also use the dosbox compatilility list in xml format
(it has a lot of games + publisher + year in it)

http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/game_database.xml
(it's a bit large but gives you a lot games + publisher. Not sure how accurate it is though)
