Can't find metadata that definitely exists.

Recommended Posts

I have a game in my launchbox called HOME, which is a free indie game released on Steam this year. I submitted it to the database back on the 4th of July, where it was promptly accepted later that day.


Usually after this happens it'll be a couple of days before it appears in Launchbox when searching for metadata. It's been over two weeks now and it's still not appearing. The only "Home" that appears is a horror game from 2012. Other games I submitted at around about the same time appear in launchbox perfectly fine, so i'm confused as to why launchbox can't find the metadata for this one.

Something similar happened to me with the new Resident Evil 2 on PC: when two games have the same name, the scrapper only finds the oldest version . You can fix that by searching using alternative names, In my case "Resident Evil 2 (2019)".

I'll add the alternative name "Home (2019)" to your game so when it's accepted into the database you can find it by searching that.
