Game Listing File Format


The "gdf" Game Listing File makes the game available to HCGE. Its name must be 8 characters or less, with no spaces or special characters. It must also use the extension ".gdf", and appear in the "gdf" folder to be recognized.

It serves as a starting point for loading the game by telling the program where it's located, and making it available to the game load menu (program start, or F8), as well as declaring the required minimum version of HCGE for running the game, and where to check for updates
