Little bugs in the database

Post by Juan F. Ramirez » Thu Oct 11, 2018 5:32 am

Next games have a 'scanned instructions' feature in the database. But what we see is the scanned inlay again. It seems it's been scanned the wrong side:

- Black Lamp
- Dark Sceptre

I'll post here if I find more

Booty shows this loading screen:

It seems from a re-release version. It isn't the beautiful original screen.

Does anyone have the originals of these games?

Thanks @Juan F. Ramirez, the original loading screen is shown in the additional downloads section. The one shown in your post is from the Outlet version. They probably need swapping around.

It was a bug in my script which generated spreadsheets for adding inlays.

These inlays in ZXDB have wrong filetype, they should have ID 4=Cassette inlay not 29 (Scanned instructions).

1067;CORE.jpg;29;Scanned instructions;
2354;Hostages.jpg;29;Scanned instructions;
551;BlackLamp.jpg;29;Scanned instructions;
1168;Crosswize.jpg;29;Scanned instructions;
1259;DarkSceptre.jpg;29;Scanned instructions;
1530;DruidII-Enlightenment.jpg;29;Scanned instructions;
2194;Gyron_Front.jpg;29;Scanned instructions;
2194;Gyron_Back.jpg;29;Scanned instructions;

I already sent it to Einar (19/07/2018) but he probably overlooked my e-mail.

Another supposedly wrong loading screen:

Howard the Duck by Activision:

It's from the Hello! Games re-release.

Well spotted Juan. It's nice to see the archive being used.

These have been logged ready for the next update. It's going to be a biggy!

EDIT: why the hell were you looking at Howard the Duck?!!
