I love the CAG collection system. I just have to keep it updated. Thanks for the contest, Cheapy!
To each his own.

CheapyD- The collection feature tool is pretty cool so I can organize my collection. I will definately be using it more often. I love how everything imports nicely over to Excel. Awesome job Cheapy!

Awesome contest. Went ahead and added some, but can't remember a good collection of my Genesis games so will have to add more not to mention the PS3 and 360 games I'm drawing a blank on.

Added a few new games I bought... Adding everything may take a while. Hoping for the import feature.

Damn, I didn't know that CAG even had a feature like this. I'm gonna add all my games simply to have them all in one place. :D

Is there a way to add pages when searching for games? I'm trying to add a few games (Donkey Kong, for example) and while it does show up, it's not showing the system I have it for. I'm trying to add Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong, Jr., both for the ColecoVision.

Other than that I like the way the system handles. I do wish there was an alternative to manual entry like the big giant list but so far so good. I should be up to 200 games in my collection now but it could take all week adding everything I have on all systems :P

@phantasyx - On the top toolbar next to Marketplace. 7th tab if you aren't counting the house icon when logged in.

I like the collection system, but it would be nice if there were more classic/import titles. I would really like to be able to inventory my entire collection. :bouncy:

You can add the games yourself under Games & Collections > Submit game to CAG. I did for a few of my older games 8-)

There is a ton of stuff we can do with the collections. We gotta get on that.





Yeah, in the meantime...just enter one to get into the contest. I know John was working on a way to import from other collections. xycury, is your collection on another website or in a spreedsheet?


I will be adding one soon.

Super John the programmer, hope he can. I use Collectorz Pro, which will export in any way or form, be it XML, CSV, Excel....

I just added a ton more games I have, but I couldn't put them all on because all the options were filled (Ms. Pac-Man for GameBoy, etc.). I also couldn't put DragonHeart on there because it's not on the sight period (for GameBoy).

Hey Cheapy, Can you add a catagory for Neo Geo Aes games. I know there is only a few of us but hey it will help me place a good number of my games in the CAG Game Collection database.

Okay, there's a workaround for the first issue. If you go to "Browse Games" and select the platform that the game is on, you can then leave the search entry blank and just pick the game from the list of games for that platform.

If a game isn't in the database, you can submit it under "Submit Game to CAG". I went ahead and added DragonHeart for you: http://www.cheapassg...fo&gameid=19639

I added my entire collection sometime ago, but I've been having some trouble adding specific games to it. This isn't just the collection system either, but also the search bar. It only displays so many results with no option to see more, so if you add a game from a large series all the other games may take up the list without you finding the one you're looking for.

For example, this happened when I tried to add Resident Evil 0.
