  1. Did you get an answer to this? I was looking into the same thing? Thanks ** EDIT ** it's okay, I've sussed it. Cheers
  2. I have used Skraper briefly a loooong time ago so it *could* be that. I'll just set up a quick file check for *backup* files in my tool and alert me if they come back. Thanks again
  3. I don't know unfortunately? I've been doing a lot of work on making a script that easily shows me which games I'm missing (and various other things ...) maybe it was a file I created many moons ago?? Can't say for sure
  4. Removing the Atari 2600 backup.xml seems to have sorted it I think!! A big thanks to Faeran and C-Beats for your help guys!! Very much appreciated. Hopefully that will be it sorted now. I've deleted a couple of other *backup files I found in the Data/Platforms/ folder too... Thanks again
  5. I have just found an Atari 2600 backup.xml in there and deleted it.... just trying it again now. Thanks
  6. Hi Faeran Yes, my roms are zip files and I just imported the folder. It's happening all the time with Atari 2600 roms - I'm just working on curating that system so I've not tried it with other systems yet. I'm busy experimenting with it at the moment to try and make a pattern out of the behaviour. I'll post back if I come up with something. Thanks 🙂
  7. Hi all, I'm trying to curate my list of Atari 2600 ROMs. I've been through and deleted some of the ROMs. I "Scan for Removed ROMs" and it finds a list that I've deleted and I tell it to remove them. I then scan for removed ROMs again and it doesn't find anything... so far so good.... However, if I power LB off and then go back the next day and "scan for removed roms" again, it finds a load more ( nearly 100 of them!!). Do I need to somehow 'refresh' the cache or something after it has 'removed roms' ?? Thanks PS... Not sure if it's relevant but I have "Allow delet
  8. Ha!!! Neil, you're a genius!!! That link actually goes to another URL which does redirect to the correct place in the database! (even though the IDs aren't the same!!). That's excellent. I just need to link to gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/dbid/..... Great stuff. Thanks for the nudge in the right direction matey
  9. I've been making some software that checks the LB DB and checks it against all the games in your library for the chosen system. It tells you what games you're missing and what extraneous games you've got. It's just to feed my OCD to collect every game for each system (which I know isn't everyone's cup of tea but it's something I'd like to do). In the table I display the LB database ID and I'd like to make it an URL to link to the LB DB. The other solution would be to embed the URL into the metadata.xml and I could just read it out of there? Quite a selfish reason - I know But
  10. Hi there, Currently the URLs of the Games DB on the website end in a unique number that doesn't match the database ID of the game. For instance... On the Atari 2600 - "Bionic Breakthrough" is here -> https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/83243 You would expect the game ID in the database to be 83243 but it is 133243 I wondered if it would be possible to either (a) set up the URLs so they match the games OR (b) set up some redirect pages such as -> gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/link/133243 that redirects to the correct URL ? Is this feasible?
  11. Yep, I've got them all working but know there's a lot of issues with them so the more things people can try the better
  12. @Tutor good info. Thanks for that
  13. Just to feedback... thanks to your brilliant advice I've now knocked together what I want - a bit of software that will let me know which games I'm missing from each system.... VERY rough and ready.... and still needs a bit more work but seems to be very useful even in it's current state. Just wanted to thank you again for letting me know about that database.
  14. That's great info!! Thanks for that. I'll see if I can maybe write something in PHP to do some magic on that XML and compare it against the games I have in LB. Thanks again for your help
  15. Thanks (again!!) - much appreciated. I really want to be able to 'export' the list into a 'dat' file and then I could import into a rom manager and (in theory) have quick visibility of all the roms that I haven't got that have full details available for them in the database. However, I'll have a play around with the audit tool and see what I can come up with. Thanks 🙂
