Hi!

 

So we want to lock down the name for this edition of CCLP2 that would work in Lynx. The main options to consider are CCLP2LX and CCLXP2. The first one is short for "Chip's Challenge Level Pack 2 Lynx" but the X also references the ten years it has been since the original release. However, this might not be a perfect fit, as the acronym is pretty long and when all the letters are capitalized it is a bit heavy to read as well. To offset this, we could separate the LX from the rest of it by a dash or a period. These might still confuse people, as there is no established way to name Lynx versions of sets. So some people already use names like cc1-lynx.dac and CHIPS-LYNX.DAT on their own, and thus CCLP2-LX might be easily confused with the original CCLP2. The last choice is to move the X and get rid of one of the L's by using CCLXP2, which might stand for "Chip's Challenge Lynx Pack 2". Does that look too weird? Weigh in with your votes and thoughts! First impressions are valuable, so tell us how the suggestions made you feel!

 

Thanks!

All great suggestions Tom! How do others feel about them? And how in the world will we decide?? Maybe we need a Hurt and Heal thread for this? :P

I have a question: what is the difference between .dat and .DAT?

 

Ancient history.

 

But seriously, there is no difference. There isn't really a difference between .dat and .ccl either.

Oh, back in Windows 3 when all file names were in capital letters?

 

And why was CCL created if it is the same thing?

It was so CCEdit could have a unique file extension associated with it.
