News [4/13/2021]: Yes, past the end of March on the promised v1.0 of my project (Now named FIVEC), but it turns out that during the process of adding features, I broke the FDD saving routine, so I'm having to fix and retest all that.
In the meantime, here's a game update (With some site fixes, including some requests):

News [3/6/2021]: An update on the image converter/editor project, not a game update (I'll try to get to that later this month)
Right now, the program can load the following images types:
This now includes D88 images, which are the only multi-disk format it handles:
Saving is currently limited to FDI, FDD, and NFD (Well, and the headerless BKDSK formats, which are only enabled if the data is compliant for being saved in that format.)
So I've got two more formats the user needs to be able to save to: (D88 primarily, DCP/DCU is barely used)
An additional compressed format it needs to be able to at least load: (VFL/VFD)
Also, there's a couple of formats that VFIC handles that are rarely seen: (FIM, FIX, Mahalito, TFD) and the HD formats, most of which look pretty simple.
I'll release at least the first version here soon, just want to make absolutely sure the converted images are converted correctly; that's mainly an issue with making sure some of the special read/register data
on the NFD r1 disks is properly handled, since those are a bit rare.
Also, related to the website, I believe I'm going to remove the RSS feed next update. It appears no modern browser even supports it anymore.

News [12/19/2020]: Sorry, no games in this update... but it does involve an explanation of what I've been up to. Basically, I've been working on some of the game images and files that had been sitting in my unsorted collection,
primarily because they weren't functional for one reason or another. So I started by making a tool to read and convert disk images (much in the style of VFIC) and it's kind of morphed into a expanded PC-98 disk editing tool. No alpha version
yet, but some screenshots below:
The basic functionality I started with was the ability to import images, export them to other formats (with a bit more interaction than just VFIC's) as well as look at the disk sectors. In particular, because several of the disk formats
allow for skipped/out-of-sequence sectors, you can see where the sector appears in the imported image ("Offset in Image File") so you can look at that if you have it open in a hex editor. You can also search for text strings through the various
There's a number of programs already existing to extract files from MS-DOS disks and FAT12/16 (AnexDiet/EditDisk) but not so much when it comes to the more obscure forms of FAT. A lot of the earlier games on the platform utilized N88-BASIC (The 86 version,
similar to what is used on most PC-88 images) which has the irritating property of using inconsistent FAT8 designs that vary on the disk size used. So the goal here is that eventually, the utility will be able to copy files too and from such disks,
to make hacks/translations easier.
The fruits of a successful extraction. Don't get your hopes up too high, most of these games used tokenized BAS files, leaving the full original on the disk was uncommon. That's... a feature for a distant date.
In any case, I hope to have a beta version available for download by early 2021.

News [8/22/20]:An monthly update, and also some site improvements. Now the tag indexes (particularly the company tags) have a blurb discussing them, and links to the company webpage if it still exists. I still need to add more general summary pages (like the by company listings pages I had earlier) but that won't make this update.
