  1. Just wanted to say thanks to whoever has been uploading logos/wheel art for Amiga games. A large amount of my collection that was missing them just appears to have been filled in.

    Database Moderators Needed ASAP

    Going in blind, I believe.

    Database Moderators Needed ASAP

    Changes (or more ideally submissions) to the main database found here - https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com

    Database Moderators Needed ASAP

    Yeah, sorry about that. 1000 or so changes in the last few days are mine. Going back through my library and adding games (plus all their info/artwork) to the DB if they don't already exist. Still got a bunch more to do. Shall I hold off or just keep going and let it queue?

    Deleted valid game from database? Homebrew

    None of what you said is relevant. Homebrew or romhacks are standalone, they work the same way a normal game would. Your definition of a modded game still doesn't fit eDuke32 because it's useless without the actual files from the other games, it's *just* an engine. Well no, because it's not a game. No, I said it *is* an engine.

    Deleted valid game from database? Homebrew

    eDuke32 isn't a game though, it's just an engine and it's useless on its own. You need to load game files into it (e.g. Duke Nukem 3D) to then be able to play that specific game. So it's at most a program, at worst just an engine. Doesn't really belong in the database. Game hacks and homebrew are something different entirely.
  7. Yeah. Specifically 722222166666669. Not sure how that's happened. Integer overflow somewhere? https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/16786
  8. I just noticed an odd bug. When viewing a game in the database, the description just below the title displays fine: Pioneer is a free and open source space trading and combat simulator video game inspired by the commercial proprietary Frontier: Elite 2. Pioneer is set at the start of the 31st century. The player may choose from one of three starting... But when you click the Images tab: Pioneer is a free and open source space trading and combat simulator video game inspired by the commercial proprietary Frontier: Elite 2.

    MS-DOS or Windows GameDB entry

    I don't agree on splitting Win 9x as that's still "Windows" would would require a large amount of reorganising for me and I assume many others (that are using the catchall of "Windows").

    MS-DOS or Windows GameDB entry

    *intents and purposes. Anyway, you shouldn't really see that many duplicated games unless those games were released twice, once as an MSDOS version and also again as a Windows version. Just because it's a DOS game that runs in Windows, doesn't make it a Windows game (e.g. lots of games from the Windows 95 and early 98 era).
  11. Is the ability to submit games from Launchbox itself now likely to have the downside of posting an overwhelming amount of bad or duplicated games? (unrelated to the issue diamond just mentioned).
  12. Moderation is a cumulative effort. Those details can be added once the game itself has been added. You may want to look into adding content rather than moderating then,
  13. Cool. Nicely done Vlansix.

    Update: Alternate Titles

    One thing I've noticed (unless I'm blind) is that the Metadata download doesn't seem to include alternate titles anywhere. Any chance of getting that added?

    Is there a way to know why a game was rejected?

    That wouldn't really help, in this instance they did provide a link to the "duplicate". Except it was actually a different game with a similar name. Maybe a comments section on the submission itself for new games would be useful (like there is for individual content).

    Is there a way to know why a game was rejected?

    The lack of appeal is a problem too. I had 4 approvals and 5 rejections on a new game, with the rejections claiming it was a duplicate of another game (which it wasn't, it was a different game).

    Which emulator are you using for MAME

    I was using MAME in RetroArch, but switched to actual MAME due to things like vector games not being handled properly in RetroArch. That said, I can't get my controllers to work properly with the real MAME program whereas with RetroArch they "just worked" so I may end up having to switch back. Also most shaders are broken on real MAME on Linux.

    Retroarch Dolphin core

    Oh, that's new. I didn't realise they'd reached that point yet. Cool.
  19. Oh, just in case anyone isn't aware (because I only noticed this last week): If you need to replace an image, don't delete the old one and upload a new one. Click on the old one, to go Edit and then you can select a replacement image there instead. It means that the action only has to be approved once rather than two (apparently unrelated) actions of delete and then add. Also makes it clearer what's being replaced and why.
  20. Oh god it's so fast, I can't moderate that quickly!

    Fake Clear Logo / Wheel Art?

    So I was trying to fill out more of my collection with the correct artwork and noticed that a lot had fake / home-made wheel art which looked something like old-school word-art. I assumed I'd accidentally picked it up somewhere else but then found this - http://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/images/19188 As you can see there is the correct Wheel Art / Clear Logo, but also a homemade / fake one. I assume others have just the fake artwork which is where I've ended up with it from. Is this allowed? I can see it very quickly becoming an issue because people's libraries would end up filled with this fake art rather than the actual logo artwork that they'd be expecting (and it wouldn't get replaced unless people go back through and delete the fake stuff first).

    Fake Clear Logo / Wheel Art?

    Don't feel silly, I only figured that out a few weeks ago when I wondered why the hell the stuff I worked on looked so jagged! Hah.

    Retroarch Dolphin core

    Just a heads up, it's not a real core, it's just a wrapper for Dolphin so I'd very much advise against trying to get it to work right now as there really isn't much point.
  24. I forgot to mention, we can't reject the ones with invalid years. If you try and reject them, you get an Internal Server Error and (unlike in the case of the deletions, which despite the error do seem to save) it doesn't appear to have actually actioned it, as refreshing the moderation page will put you back on the same new game entry (with an invalid year). The only way to progress is to use the Ignore for 24 Hours option.
  25. The big one I'm running in to right now (other than generally very slow operation when using the moderation part of the DB) is that every time I accept a deletion request, I get internal server error. I don't appear to be getting that any other time now.
