Map Listings
« on: April 06, 2019, 05:06:46 PM »

I was about to report something else, but since it hasn't been fixed over the years: the map listing sorted by authors puts Aaro Ruohonen last instead of first.

The other thing: "New Duke City" and "Duke City Remastered" have conflicting author names. "Jesse McCree" appears to be a reference to a game character in Overwatch, and the "ling" has disappeared over time. "Duke City Remastered" doesn't show up in the "sorted by authors" list.

Simply because 'Aa' is short for 'Å' the 29'th letter in the alphabet. (some languages are short of three letters)

The other thing: "New Duke City" and "Duke City Remastered" have conflicting author names. "Jesse McCree" appears to be a reference to a game character in Overwatch, and the "ling" has disappeared over time. "Duke City Remastered" doesn't show up in the "sorted by authors" list.

Fixed.
Thanks for the heads up  :)

I see. I knew that
Simply because 'Aa' is short for 'Å'
, but  not this
the 29'th letter in the alphabet. (some languages are short of three letters)
. I somehow assumed Å would be sorted like our Umlauts which do not constitute letters in their own right. Btw., äöüß would make our alphabet 30 letters ... I win  ;)

Besides their score  ;D , Maarten Pinxten's "MpRocket" and "Operation Kolpowitz" are identical. The latter has a more recent TXT.

Maarten released both maps at the same time back in the days.
Last editing of both map-files are on the same date.
I'll guess he forgot the template on Kolpowitz  ;)

DNR also published the same date for both releases. (Kim gave Kolpowitz a score of 92 though...)
Can't see how it should matter, really, but thanks for the heads-up.
