Earlier I had wrote about some “Important notes on Custom GamePacks for C64.app”.
Forget everything I said 😛
I’ve realized while building the games packages for release via Cydia that using the gameid simply won’t work 100% of the time.
The problem is some gameid’s contain spaces, hyphens, underscores, and a mix of lower and uppercase characters. And even Manomio doesn’t use the actual gameid in all of their releases.
Rather then use something like “com.manomio.C64.gameid” we could use com.cydia.C64.id, now I say “.id” vs “.gameid” to avoid confusion, because again we should NOT be using the gameid.
Instead we should only use lowercase characters with no spaces, hyphens or underscores in the name,
The reason why I chose to replace “manomio” with “cydia” is because not only is it not a manomio release, but I wouldn’t want to see your paid/official downloads and game-saves overwritten.
All of the game releases I will be posting in Cydia will be set to conflict with any game of the same name.
This means that if you already have installed paperboy, Cydia will not allow you to overwrite paperboy until you have uninstalled it.
I think that by following this standard it will make things simpler and help avoid countless duplicates when downloading any multi-game-packs.
I will have the Cydia Repo up soon so. It will be host to individual games as well as larger game-packs.
