Welcome to the inaugural issue of Scene Charts!
What is the purpose of scene charts?
   Scene Charts is here for everyone in the game release scene to
   see how their favorite group compared to others. SC is also made
   for the groups themselves to see what they did right/wrong and 
   fix what needs fixing and stress what they did right.
Why Read Scene Charts?
   With a few other charts out there, most noteably Just The Facts,
   why read Scene Charts? Because if you want an objective factual
   ranking system then this is the one for you. Maybe you want an
   unbiased editor who isn't in any of the release groups. Maybe
   you just want a change.
Send all your comments positie or negative to cx-santa@bigfoot.com
I need someone to do the coding for a reader for next month's issue, email me!

Special thanx to Cypher for all the help and ideas!

All work entirely by me, santa.

│The Point System:│
└─────────────────┘
  Point System is based on Objective Facts, not Subjective Opinions
 ┌────────────┐
 │RIP Releases│
 └────────────┘
 *The person who decides whats RETAIL or BUDGET is the company!*
 *They after all know what target their title is aimed at*

 RETAIL.......................................................+005.0
  DUPE! -5.0 for the Game, -2.0 for the DUPE!.................-007.0
  Over FIFTY(50) 2.88 meg or 100 1.44 meg disks...............-002.0
  RAPES[essential game data is missing (Levels, SFX)].........-003.5
  BETA -5 points for the original game and -2 points for releasing 
				a BETA........................-007.0

 BUDGET.......................................................+001.0
  DUPE! -1.0 for the Game, -1.0 for the DUPE!.................-002.0
  Over FIFTY(50) 2.88 meg or 100 1.44 meg disks...............-001.0
  RAPES[essential game data is missing (Levels, SFX)].........-001.0
  BETA -1 point for the original game and -0.5 points for releasing
				 a BETA.......................-001.5

	THIS DISK LIMIT IS **NOT** BECAUSE OF THE FACTION RULES.
	 I polled people from the top groups[PDM, RZR, CLS, OGN]
	 and most, if not all, said 50 disks is good because it's
	 small enough for a modem user, yet provides a challenge
				 to rip.

 ┌────────────┐
 │Trainers:   │

  Normal Trainer...............................................+000.5

  Trainer with more [NEW]options then a previous trainer (-0.3 to

  BETA to FINAL PATCH (Must have GAME difference not just BYTE diffs)
						...............+002.0

 ┌────────────┐
 │FIXES:      │
 └────────────┘

012499 SIM_CITY_3000_BETA_TO_STORE_FINAL_UPDATE-CLS see SimCity3k STORE FINAL
.
012499 SimCity_3000_STORE_FINAL-CLS contains NO Game Play Difference at all 
       from OGN's Release the only two things that are different is the 
       version reply via ctrl-alt-v and the message dialog box which pops up
       and says "The 30 day expiration of this pre-release has expired."
        This was first stated on Scene Review(www.scenereview.com) and then
        later in a Origin nfo. The excert from this ogn nfo will be included 
        as "ogn-sc3k.txt"
.
011999 Enemy.Infestation.Update.v1.195.WORKING-PARADIGM
    "Well, RAZOR had problem with their first release and needed to fix it.
    So does ORIGIN. Their update crack has left a tricky nasty CRC check in
    the code. It will be noticable only after playing 20 minutes on a mission
    ( Razor told , their's came up after 10minutes). You will then have a 
    problem with moving the scene around with your mouse and maybe some other
    glitches. I was playing a lot and thought it was a stupid bug again, but
    it is definatly a nasty 'feature'"
.
011699 ALPHA_CENTAURI-RAZOR <BETA>
	ARG.. This Release has as much controversy as Sim City 3000
 This was posted one day after the razor release of Alpha Centauri on 
 sidgames.com/ac/ :
 Going Gold...One More Time 
   Scott Udell has posted the following on the Computer Games Online AC forum
    "Just found out that the *second* "gold master" was found to have a crash
    bug in it, so they're working on yet another one. They said they never 
    officially announced the game's release date, so the planned date of Feb.
    9th may or may not now hold true. The brand spanking new 'third final' is
    supposed to be ready 'early next week.'"
 This was also posted on sidgames.com/ac/ on the 20th:
   [BTW, He's talking about the crash bug in the 2nd Gold Master of AC]
    FYI, towards the very end of our QA process we discovered a highly 
    intermittent bug which occurred when a certain Secret Project was built.
    When I say "highly intermittent" I mean that it took our whole QA team
    all day to reproduce it -after- we knew exactly where and when the bug 
    occurred. But we decided it was worth fixing & submitting a new master 
    version anyway; still better news is that this does not appear to have
    affected our ship date.

   OKOK.. i dont wanna get flamed for not counting this as a BETA but i have
   reasons:
    1.\ There is NO REAL evidence of it being beta, the crtl-v screen says 
     its beta but that has happened with other games.
    2.\ Read 012499 SimCity_3000_STORE_FINAL-CLS's news and ogn-sc3k.txt

010399 EXTREME_TENNIS-RAZOR
  You may remember this game got released a while ago, but the one that was 
  released was the EURO verion and this is the American version. This release
  DOES contain a difference from the EURO [ie: New Graphics / some new sounds]
