  1. Problema con la base de datos

    This is not currently possible, though it makes sense for us to eventually add support for multiple languages to the games database. It will probably be a while before we get there though.
  2. Moderator Guidelines and Contributor Rules

    Another quick update, just fixed a bug where alternate titles without regions were not showing up on the game details pages. All the data and everything was being uploaded and moderated without any issues, but they just weren't showing up. So you'll probably see a bunch more alternate titles show up on the game details pages now.
  3. Moderator Guidelines and Contributor Rules

    @Robin55 They look great! Yes, they should be accepted in the database. Just make sure to categorize them correctly with the correct region and category. Unfortunately I still don't have a way to upload them in batch, though.
  4. Multiple manuals support

    Hey there @GoodOldGames, one way around this is to use additional apps instead for the remaining documents. I plan to add support for using the built-in PDF reader for additional apps that are PDFs.
  5. Disable title background

    We could certainly add that as an option, but it still won't solve the invisible text problem with changing backgrounds.
  6. An idea to encourage moderating

    Moderation performance should be much improved now. I'm not necessarily done working on performance there, but I did make some good progress today.
  7. Moderator Guidelines and Contributor Rules

    Hey all, quick update. I've been working on the database website a bit the last couple of days. I put some significant time into the moderation performance; my goal is to get moderation to stop slowing down over time (instead of just archiving records every once in a while). I did make some big performance gains, so hopefully performance stays half-way decent.
  8. Disable title background

    Makes sense. Though if you look closely, the surrounding outlines are actually not pixel-perfect to the text (due to some unfortunate issues with Windows rendering and ClearType text), so that would require going back to the drawing board somewhat. That said, makes sense. I'll try and gauge how popular this request is based on how many times I've heard it requested. Is there a BitBucket ticket for it?
  9. Launchbox/Bigbox Not Loading Achievement Sets

    I see. Yeah, as far as I know, there's no way for us to fix this ourselves. It has to do with how the emulator is coded; they apparently never bothered to integrate the retro achievements stuff when loading a ROM via the command line, only via the emulator's interface. So yes, we would have to go back to the retroachievements.org community to get this fixed.
  10. An idea to encourage moderating

    Yeah, I am working on the moderation performance issues as we speak. I fixed a number of errors yesterday and I'm working on performance today. I know that performance is the biggest reason why we've been having trouble getting things moderated, and the problem is that previous performance fixes we've done were only temporary. I'm not really sold on reducing moderation requirements for long-term contributors, but I will give that some thought. Per the badges, that is something I would love to do but it requires some significant work integrating the forums and the games database sites (which currently use two separate accounts), so it's a royal pain to implement. But hopefully I can get that in eventually.
  11. 8.0-beta-1 Released

    Responded in the thread. Isn't that a list of pretty much every useful feature included in Rocket Launcher? I'm not saying that we'll never tackle those features, because many of them I would love to have myself, but it's important to note that Rocket Launcher is no small project and it's made even more complicated by needing separate code for all those things for each individual emulator. If you throw in the fact that it's very bug-prone due to constantly changing versions of Windows and updates, constantly changing emulators, and forcing Windows to do things it really wasn't meant to do, it becomes a pretty big mess to implement, and an even bigger mess to maintain. So as much I as I'd love if this stuff could be implemented well and just work, it's pretty unlikely to happen any time soon, which is why I'm very glad the project exists.
  12. Launchbox/Bigbox Not Loading Achievement Sets

    Unfortunately I think this is an issue with the standalone emulators themselves, at least that's my guess. @neil9000 What do you mean by needing the game ID as a "second shot"? Is there a different command-line we can use? Unfortunately the only option we would have to fix the issue from within LaunchBox itself would be through command-line parameters. Otherwise, we'll have to report the issue to the retroachievements.org community.
  13. 8.0-beta-1 Released

    Are you certain this is a new behavior with the 8.0 betas? I'm lost as to what would have caused it. Yeah, I noticed that recently. That is correct. Yup.
  14. 8.0-beta-1 Released

    This error seems to come from the AddToGamesDB plugin.
  15. 8.0-beta-1 Released

    We may add this later but I probably won't group it in with this release because it doesn't seem like it would be a popular request. This would be cool, but I don't think it would be possible using the Chromium Embedded Framework engine. We'd have to implement something more low-level. It would probably work, but it would be extremely resource-intensive and finicky. I honestly didn't watch the video (sorry ) but I'm guessing maybe it's from a plugin?
