Programming Blast from the Past: GameFAQs CodeUnit 28 DEC 2012

GameFAQsFound this little self-produced gem on an old USB disk lying in my drawer and thought it a good idea to post up here to try and save it for prosperity.

Basically, I wrote this handy little offline GameFAQs application to have FAQs close at hand back in the day when Internet Connection at home was non-existent and PS2 play time was plenty!

Essentially the application took a structured approach to storing text file FAQs which I would download from to mirror my at that time pretty large PS2 game collection.

Of course these days I don’t collect games and pretty much have a get rid of once done with policy in place, never mind the uncapped Internet Connection at home, thus relegating this little bit of application programming firmly into the realm of nostalgia.

Probably written in Visual Basic .NET in case you’re wondering.
