Launchbox downloading removed/replaced images from DB

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

for many games i think removed images are still getting downloaded check out The 7th Saga on Games DB page it shows only 1 front and back box images yet Launchbox shows it has 2 for each the ones that show on Games DB looks higher resolution so i think they replaced lower resolution versions.

https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/images/267

this happens with many games i see it download lower quality image for the same image type and then it also gets the current  version on the DB page some how the images are still up on DB and are still getting added to the metadata 

 

check it out

 

  <GameImage>
    <DatabaseID>282</DatabaseID>
    <FileName>c6ff8c67-784c-4332-b63b-5f8e8fa0de89.png</FileName>
    <Type>Box - Back</Type>
    <Region>North America</Region>
    <CRC32>3289524567</CRC32>
  </GameImage>
  <GameImage>
    <DatabaseID>282</DatabaseID>
    <FileName>8a69a7d1-811b-4b67-9458-541f6e044ff3.jpg</FileName>
    <Type>Box - Back</Type>
    <Region>North America</Region>
    <CRC32>3183130013</CRC32>
  </GameImage>

 

this happens for many many games and is why we get so many duplicate images

I haven't come across this myself so far. Perhaps you should tag Vlansix about it.

no everyone gets this as every downloads the same metadata.xml from the server when getting data from GAMES DB

has anyone looked into fixing this? there is no reason removed/replaced artwork should still be in the metadata.xml that we download unless you guys forgot to code it so that it removes them after moderators replace/remove artwork.
