  1. I have seen it many times. Looks like an automated message but the plugin might be bugged.
  2. I usually skip them. I don't accept nor reject changes to screenshots regarding region. I know covers can be significantly different but does the in-game differences require different regions on screenshots?
  3. I know when LB is searching for metadata on a ROM file, it tries to fetch data from Wikipedia. Is this linked to the WikipediaURL area in the database? Otherwise, I don't see any harm in accepting links to steamdb.info, wikia and even steam itself since lots of information can be found on there in the case of PC games. What do you reckon? I saw a deletion of a non-wikipedia link in the moderation today. It was a link to game's own wikia page. Are these detrimental to how LB works?
  4. It is possible this could stunt the database growth too since right now whatever image found is put in there. Not everyone would be privy to using an image editing software to resize pictures. I wonder if we could fetch images from steamgriddb website similar to emumovies. The website doesn't require login to download covers, only to upload.
  5. Agreed. For more recent Windows games steamdbdotinfo is useful as well.
  6. I was updating my Steam beta grid custom covers through steamgriddbdotcom and I noticed they have categories and rules for each category. For example the covers I'm using are shaped like vertical box arts and they have to be 600x900 png images. The category is "Alternate". Otherwise you can't upload them. I actually didn't try to load an image with different file type or resolution but should we have some standards for the images in the database? At least for the cover arts that appear in our Launchbox library? What do you think?
  7. Cool. I thought my internet was acting up.
  8. Sometimes it takes very long to load the next item on the queue. Is it just me? Also, whenever I go modding I end up with a longer queue than I started with. Are there really constant adds/changes to the database or is it bugged?
  9. My personal opinion is that it wouldn't hurt them to have them on the database. I don't have them and I don't use them but there might be people looking them up or launching them through Launchbox. I saw the deletion requests last night too and I just skipped them cos I couldn't decide me being a new mod as well. What's the policy on angled front cart images? Do we reject them and request ones taken straight from the front or just accept them? Also, what about the front cart pics that are too dark because lighting wasn't proper? Do we have any standards?
  10. This isn't directly related but I was having trouble running a 32x game with Picodrive core in Retroarch through Launchbox a minute ago. I tried many things but it kept giving a black screen. I opened it directly with RA and it said Failed to load content. I tried the rom with Fusion and Gens+ emulators. Both worked, so it wasn't a faulty rom. I even tried another rom. Then, ran a command window with Retroarch to see the error messages if any by enabling verbose logging. Part of the log file is below: [libretro ERROR] Failed to detect ROM/CD image type. [INFO] Removing temporary content file: D:\isjusgam\Sega gens emulat├Âr\32x\WWF WrestleMania - The Arcade Game (USA).32x. [ERROR] Failed to load content. I asked at the RA discord. One person asked if there was a special character in the directory name. I changed "ö" in emulatör to "o" and it worked. I couldn't believe it. Turns out RA doesn't like special characters even if it appears in a directory name hence it appears as "emulat├Âr" in the log.
