To celebrate this, we have preserved another 25 games, including some rather special ones, like the original Electronic Zoo version of Cardiaxx. Please note that Cardiaxx does not work with the current versions of Win/UAE due to some rather unique protection. Through cooperation with the UAE team, the next version will support this game.
2001, April - CAPS officially goes public
2001, September - First version of the dumping tool completed
2002, December - CAPS preserves the first game
2004, April - CAPS preserves the 1624th game.
That is 1 year and 8 months of pure research without preserving any games. Even though a huge number of games were dumped after September 2001, we could not start to ensure they were 100% authentic until after December. You can still see exactly what went on in this period by looking at the WIP pages. It was well worth the effort.
Taking December 2002 as being the start of our active preservation campaign means we have a current rate of about 81 games preserved a month. However, this is getting less and less as it gets more difficult to find the games. If you have any games not on the games page then please contact us. If you do not have any games, you can still help us find and preserve the games by contributing financially.
A huge thanks goes out to all those that have supported the cause, your help makes our job a lot easier. There is still a long way to go, but with the help of the community, we will get this thing done.
