Duplicate games ?

Post by Eagle_Kiwi » Sun Oct 06, 2013 3:54 am

Hi guys,

I'm confused by a number of games that seem to be here twice. It's frustrating to work hard at getting a great score for a game only to find later that there's another copy of that same game, possibly with a much higher score, already sitting there.

Any chance the following examples might be rectified ?
3 Card Poker and 3 Card PokerThese are both same game but completely different versions. To avoid obvious confusion I suggest renaming them to:
"3 Card Poker (OnlineReal)" and "3 Card Poker (NetMinder)".


501 Darts
and 501 DartsThese also are completely different versions of the same basic game. But the 2nd one is NOT called 501 Darts - it should be renamed back to "Bullseye" (or I guess "Bullseye (501 Darts)" if u like!?)

Ben 10 Alien Force Omnimatch and Ben 10 Omnimatch
Both the same game, but 2nd one shows better instructions, so I suggest killing the first one.

Booya and Booyah
Both same game but very slightly different in hi score submission. First one is simpler - I suggest rename it to the correct "Booyah", and delete the 2nd one.
Bumper Jack and Bumper Jack 21
Both exactly same - correct title is simply Bumper Jack - I suggest kill the 2nd one then.

Fratboy Girlfriend Tower Defense and
Fratboy Girlfriend Tower Defense
Both seem 100% identical. I suggest remove the first one (#446) as its hi scores are nowhere near those of the 2nd.

(I'm happy to continue right thru checking ALL the games for duplication if this would help clean them up.)

Ok, You asked for it!
I hope you can understand the following - I've now checked up to (the daunting!) Mahjong.

Cannon Island - Survival - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=357 DELETE (Other 'Survival' version slightly better)

Castle Of Cards - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=268 DELETE (Both versions virtually identical)

Concentrate Plus - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=817 DELETE (Other version allows for 2 player game as well, AND has good instructions)

Crazy Rabbit Bowling - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=123 DELETE (I can't spot any difference between 123 and 124, but at least I've verified that 124 "works" fine!)

deal-or-nodeal - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... &gameid=13 RENAME ... to "Deal or No Deal (P2P)"

Deal or No Deal - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... &gameid=91 RENAME ... to "Deal or No Deal (PacDude)"

Flash Mine Sweeper - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=141 DELETE (seems 100% same as other)

Fridge Word - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=143 DELETE (identical to Fridge WordS)

Fruit Mine - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=618 DELETE (identical to other)

Gary Cooper Deluxe 21 - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=291 DELETE (identical to 'Hit 21 Delux')

I Love Candy - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... &gameid=72 DELETE (identical to other)

Let It Ride - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=237 DELETE (identical)

Wow!
With a super scrubber like that I'm very pleased to check them. :)

Expect another batch in a few days (when once again EK gets tired of always coming 2nd - or even 3rd - in all the TD games. ;-) )

Thanks JJ.

A few(?) more tidies:

Tower Defense 2007 - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=395
*DELETE* This is an earlier version (2007-01-11) of the OTHER game by this name, below (which is v2007-02-01).
I reckon any differences will be miniscule, but if anything that later version will be smarter.
(Besides, JJ's scored only 562 in this one - as against 2589 in the other!)

Tower Defense 2007 - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=404
*RENAME* I dunno where that title came from, but in the game itself it's clearly called 'Flash Element TD'. (And I've seen it called that on at least one other site).

Stronghold Defense - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=913
*ADD INSTRUC* Is it possible to change/add DESC/OBJECT/KEYS text ? This game urgently needs "NOTE: At end, choose RETRY to Submit your score." (otherwise if u click Main Menu it simply retry/replays!)

Mahjong 3D (005) Classic - The Arena - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... &gameid=51
*RENAME* should be Mahjongg, not Mahjong (just to keep in line. ;-) )

Poux - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=444
*DELETE* Same as other copy. (And I guess leave Madam Butterfly with best Alltime, EK won't mind. ;-) )

Supreme Stunt - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=536
*DELETE?* Exactly same as other copy, called Supreme Stunts v32. I GUESS that THIS one then is the older (and less 'secure'!?) "v2", so would be best jettisoned.

Yeti Bubbles - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=467
*DELETE* Same as other copy (both allow 2 modes ok) - I figure this one marginally worse as it has an extra ('More Games') needless option.

Yeti Bubbles Arcade - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=389
*DELETE* Same as other, but slightly more cluttered menu.

Yeti Bubbles Classic - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=802
*DELETE* same as previous entry

Yeti Puzzlekick - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=179
*DELETE* Duplicate, both exactly same, can't separate them this time!

NOTE: These next 2 sets are similar cases. I believe every game must have a UNIQUE name, hence adding their differences here within their names. Acutely aware of problems with overlong names I suggest "replay" is shorter than "restart" while meaning the same, and the "other" versions be called "one try" (rather than "no replay") again for brevity.

That said, I do rather wonder about the 'need'? for even having these ones without the restart. All that means is that the hi scores will be harder, but seems to me a waste of bandwidth for the site when users will play then RELOAD game repeatedly. Surely the "Replay" version would suffice, be 'nicer' for players, AND use (infinitesimally!) less bandwidth for S4B.

Yeti Sports 10 - Icicle Climb - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... &gameid=30
*RENAME* Add "(One try)".

Yeti Sports 10 - Icicle Climb - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... &gameid=66
*RENAME* Add "(Replay)"

Yetisports StageDive - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... &gameid=69
*RENAME* "Yeti Sports Stagedive (Replay)"

Yeti Sports Stagedive - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=190
*RENAME* Yeti Sports Stagedive (One try)

Yeti Sports 5 - Flamingo Drive - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... &gameid=14
*DELETE* Same as other copy - and indeed neither has a 'replay' option (and it's Madam Butterfly who has the Alltime! - I wonder: is she still about ?)

Yeti Pentathlon - http://www.shop4bizness.com/board/arcad ... gameid=177
*DELETE* Same as other copy (and neither has any Replay option) so trash THIS one as Madam B's Alltime is better on the other.

And that's ALL, A to Z! A 'quick' check through, and doubtless one or two others will surface in time, but I think the overall picture should now be much clearer/cleaner for all us players. :-)
