A suggestion in general: perhaps have the software bar on the left remember your position / auto-scroll to the currently loaded programme? Especially handy when you are working your way down the list. Smile

Yes. You are very right about that.It has already been requested a few times, but to be quite honest: I lack the programming skills to actually make it work ;'(

Probably the cleanest would be adding a unique id attribute to the list items (so, <li id="bloodymary"> instead of <li>) on the left, and then adding that same id at the end of each URL as #fragment, i.e. https://homebrew.file-hunter.com/index.php?id=bloodymary#blo...

Alternatively, adding this javascript code would probably do it without adding anything else to your HTML:

var url = location.href.split(/https?:\/\/[^/]{1,}\//)[1];
if (url != "") {
  var current_game_el = document.querySelector('a[href="' + url+ '"]');
  if (current_game_el !== undefined) { current_game_el.scrollIntoView(); }
}

Well, that is quite effective. Thanks! I have just added it to the homebrew section and it works very well. Thank you very, very much!
If I want to add it to for example https://www.file-hunter.com/MSXdev/ I guess I need to change the script somehow?

Thanks again!

/edit/
I think I found it how to alter it :)

/edit 2/
Added the same function to the main site, MSXdev & Arabic section. Thanks Again!

I've started moving some games from the main section at file-hunter.com to homebrew.file-hunter.com, but now I am running into a small issue. What exactly should I define as homebrew?
If I take it leterally, Eggbert, all Kazilec stuff, Gianna Sisters, etc.. are homebrew. But some of these games were commercial in the past as well. So how should I define homebrew in this case? All "home" written software? Or just the never commercially released "home" written software?

This one is really difficult. Some of the commercially sold software written in the 80's were made by teenagers at home. Perhaps any software made by people not employed by a registered company to do so could be called homebrew?

If you look at the definition of Homebrew Video Games on Wikipedia:

"Homebrew on Wikipedia" wrote:

Homebrew is a term frequently applied to video games or other software produced by consumers to target proprietary hardware platforms (usually with hardware restrictions) that are not typically user-programmable or that use proprietary storage methods. This can include games developed with official development kits, such as Net Yaroze, Linux for PlayStation 2 or Microsoft XNA.[1] A game written by a non-professional developer for a system intended to be consumer-programmable, like the Commodore 64, is simply called hobbyist (rather than homebrew).

then most of that software would even be closer to 'hobbyist' than 'homebrew', as the MSX doesn't really use proprietary storage methods, and definitely wasn't intended as non-user-programmable.

LOL... That did NOT help me! Hahahahaha :) :)
Ah well... I'll just move some files around according to my own liking :)

I think a more clearly defined separation could be to use categories 'commercial' and 'non-commercial', and perhaps with sub-categories for those had a physical release, and those that were only released digitally?
Or indeed if it was published by a registered publisher.

Maybe also make a 'safe for work' version while you are at it? Smile

I am going to give it another thought this weekend and then I will see where I end up Smile

People shouldn't be MSX-ing @ work anyway ;-) But I'll give that some though as well. But for now I'll be breaking my mind over the homebrew stuff first Smile
And I also received a list of some corrupt files in the download section. And I want to sort out the game & images section as well. And my wife, daughter & cat also demand attention.. AARRGGHH... I need 50 hrs in a day...
