Allow partial keyword matches in Games DB search


Recommended Posts

Searching for "alone dark nightmare" will return 0 results. You need to search for exact game title like "alone in the dark the new nightmare" or exact phrases as they appear in the title like "alone in the dark" to return results. Usually, search engines would allow partial string matches.

Thanks.

LB does do partial matches but you need to use a legitimate partial string to a title. Such as "Alone In The". Not random title words.

If you do wish to make this a suggestion than those are made on our bitbucket site. Link is located at the top of the forum under Help & Support.

Whoops sorry, was meaning to say the Games DB website because I was making some submissions. But now that you mention, LB is probably going to behave the same since it fetches from there.
