Title: Database or List maker
Post by hiddenevil on Dec 7th, 2018, 12:00am

I have a job for my Psion 2 but I'm struggling to find an appropriate program.

I want to sift through the various games for my consoles, computers but organise them using such things as Platform, Media, Title.

I did think about writing a program in OPL, but that would require I learning to program :-P

Have a look at Widget Filemaster v4.5, and/or Harvester Data Organiser (one of the programs on the Harvester Superchip). Manuals for both are on Jaaps site.

Both of those suggested by thesourcerer are available for 'Selecting an existing pack and inserting it into the Psion.' in Jape.

Try before you buy!

I still have 'The Data Organiser' and if you can't write a program yourself, then it is pretty good.

In fact, it is how I learned to program! I'd bought this, used it, seen the way it worked and tried to do the same, or better. I remember things like discovering how to do a 1-line menu (Organiser II CM/XP) and saving data when the program closes so that it starts up with default values - stuff like that.

I'd recommend it, based on usability. It's not as streamlined as your own solution would be, but it is lot quicker!

Thanks guys, I'll look in to all of these.

Learning to program will be a later project, while making this list is something I'd like to get on soon.
