  1. To the best of my knowledge the data updates I submit are done in a few days per upload. However literal name changes like WonderSwan to Bandai WonderSwan sadly I have not seen any changes or impact. (Not sure if there is a hardcoded reason for it or not. But can confirm there is not way for me to change the name in submissions. - Thus the reason I started this thread as well.) I will try to get to a few more submissions this week. I have been rather busy with work to the point I have been wiped when I am done. Thanks again for the reply as it gets me excited to do things again.

  3. Thanks for the survey info as well as the link to vote for the feature.
  4. Has it ever been brought up to add a next and previous button when editing games? When editing several new records that don't have a bulk change value, I find that I am saving, clicking the next item, clicking edit, making the change, and repeating. Is there a shortcut key press that I am missing that may exist for this. I was going to enter a feature request for this, but I would assume that someone at some point had similar issues as me and that there is some limitation with saving records on moving that is the issue. Thoughts?

  7. Title: Welback Holdings Mega Duck Scrape As: Mega Duck Release Date: 8/27/1993 Developer: Welback Holdings Manufacturer: Welback Holdings CPU: Zilog Z80 @ 4.19 MHz Memory: 16 KB RAM Graphics: (((UNKNOWN))) Sound: Mono Speaker Display: 160 × 144 Media: Cartridge Max Controllers: 1 Sort Title: Welback Holdings Mega Duck Platform Category: Handhelds Notes: The Welback Holdings Mega Duck, usually just referred to as the Mega Duck, is a fourth generation (1987-2004) handheld video game console developed and distributed by Welback Holdings, but marketed under different names like Creatronic, Videojet, Cougar USA, and Hartung. It was released in August 1993 in Netherlands at a retail price of fl 129 as the Creatronic Mega Duck. The console was also released in Germany (1993) distributed by Hartung, France (1993) distributed by Videojet, and Brazil (1993) but as the Cougar USA Cougar Boy. The Mega Duck was an obvious clone of the Game Boy in looks, and it sadly lacked any innovative games to set it apart to become a competitor. The console was discontinued quietly sometime in early 1995. Picture: Additional Platform Change Suggestions (For the Admins): The current platform should be renamed to "Welback Holdings Mega Duck" to follow other platforms like Sony PlayStation, Sega Genesis, Atari Jaguar, etc. Additionally, while people currently tend to associate Creatronic as the publisher name on the Mega Duck, the fact that it existed in multiple markets at the same time, and with no clear winner on any region where it became super popular, the use of the common point for all versions of the Mega Duck is Welback Holdings, which is why I suggest that as the main name to use.

  14. I am cool with any help that others want to help with. My goal is to do enough of these to spur interest to finally get the database admins to make the polishing changes. Again worse case is they don't update the game database with these changes, but they will be available for others that want that data and don't want to dig for the research on all of the platforms. The best way to help is to keep the encouragement coming and offering suggestions on my submissions. Additionally helping supply field data like Graphics/Sound/etc. saves researching. I already have a ton of images I have modified into pngs, so no need to re-invent that wheel if you don't have the best tools or knowledge. Thanks!
