How do I find a Game ID in the database

Recommended Posts

I am trying to find out what the ID is of this game:

https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/2485

 

There are two games on the Genesis with the title of "Spider-Man" and Launchbox will only pull up the other game in the search field. The number in the URL doesn't seem to correspond to the Game ID. For example if I edit the XML file and set the ID to 2485 Launchbox will take me to the page for Battlefield 1943. So I am looking for the correct number to put into the DatabaseID field in the XML file so that LaunchBox will show the correct game.

If there's a way to find the ID myself that would be great to know. The images in the database don't seem to reference the ID and there isn't a field on the page that shows it.

The game ID is not a database ID. Two different things. Just wanted to ask if the game ID is generated randomly during the import process (each time differently)?
