I want to be able to change the non-US cover art that's been posted. I want my covers in American.

USA! USA! USA!

Honestly, though, they should be the US releases since the vast majority of users here are US-based. Also, I was surprised to realize that release dates aren't part of the listed information. Or is it and I'm just missing it? I saw the "first added" date but I don't see the point of that.

First, I second most of FriskyTanuki's suggestions except for removing VC/PS1 Classic games. It would be better if there was a separate way to designate the game as the VC/PS1 Classic version.

Second, I would like to request an Import Collection feature where a CAG can import a file of their collection. This would be useful for CAGs that have large collections so they don't have to enter each title manually. I know there is already a feature to import a collection from IGN, but I don't have an IGN account. I have my game collection in other software. The ability to import a CSV file with multiple fields (title, platform, publisher, etc) would be great, but to start this could be kept simple and just require that the import file be a .txt file containing the game titles of your collection, with each title on it's own line.

One more thing I noticed.

You can not add regular Neo Geo AES games, only Neo Geo CD games. Is there a way to fix that, or add the cart versions?

I just started trying to build my collection on this site since the IGN and Playfire sites have gone to hell. I used the import from IGN feature a few days ago and it hasn't made any progress in adding titles. I was wondering if I should keep waiting or has it failed and should I just start manually adding games to my list? When I click on import it still says "Your games have been scanned and added to a processing queue - this can take up to an hour to complete."

I also found a game that's not in your database, I'll try to submit it if I can figure out how.

It would also be nice if we could add MVS carts.

Dunno if that would be too confusing or not though.

I brought this up before but i guess we're going by what Shipwreck owns; hence, the Neo Geo CD.

Man, I'd sure like the Vita in the Database.
Now would be a good enough time if any to add it.

Several games got nuked out of the database... The entries are showing up as blanks in my collection, so I had to Google to find out what some of them were:

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King (PS2) (http://www.cheapassg...nfo&gameid=2764)
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction (PC) (http://www.cheapassg...nfo&gameid=4659)
Half-Life 2: Episode One (PC) (http://www.cheapassg...art&gameid=4812)
The Sims 2 Kitchen & Bath Interior Design Stuff (PC) (http://www.cheapassg...nfo&gameid=4923)
Uplink (PC) (http://www.cheapassg...nfo&gameid=6727)
Chantelise - A Tale of Two Sisters (PC) (http://www.cheapassg...o&gameid=516471)

Can't find thru Google:

http://www.cheapassg...nfo&gameid=2612
http://www.cheapassg...nfo&gameid=4857
http://www.cheapassg...nfo&gameid=5089
http://www.cheapassg...o&gameid=513826

Wondering if anyone knows how I can find out what the above entries were, so I can update my collection. Thanks!

Looking at the DQVIII page that remains, the original page that was made first was deleted, which doesn't make any sense. Unless it was poorly made and full of errors, I don't see any reason that the duplicate should be kept over the original when it only serves to hurt the people who have added those games to their collections and won't be able to easily figure out what this empty entry used to be.

dfg what exactly did you search for to figure that out? I have 8 games that are blank in my collection now and I came here looking for answers. I'm pissed because I just checked all my games about a month ago to make sure that I had everything listed that I own.

Well, if it says "No Art" then you can get the game's database # and paste that into a URL for a known game. Then I pasted the whole URL into Google.

The ones I listed above had results, and those others didn't return anything via Google, the Wayback Machine, or any other search engine I could think of.

It's great that we can download a CSV of our collections, but there's no field for the dbID#. I guess I could compare against an older version, but that would be really tedious, especially since previous CSV is over a year old.

I wonder if the person who maintains the database is able to check the records and let us know what was deleted. Pretty please?

You can get the ID# from url of the Edit Game option next to it, which still works for the removed games.

Ok thanks, I got a few of them.

1444 not found
9051 was :gc: Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
9558 was :dc: MDK 2
10649 was :xbox: Doom 3: Collector's Edition
14376 was :gbc: Pokemon Crystal
15440 was :nes: Super Mario Bros 3
510239 was :360: Harm's Way
510241 was :360: Dorito's Crash Course

Totally agree with FriskyTanuki. Now I have to re-add a game to my database that was just created 2 days ago, instead of an entry that was probably created before back towards the time of the games release. weird.

Through some tedious spreadsheet manipulation, I've deduced that two of the nuked games from my collection (but I can't tell which #) were The Sims 2 University (PC) and Xenosaga 1 (PS2).

Curiously, Xenosaga 1 has no duplicate entry, unless I'm missing something.

I rolled back some of the game deletions that failed to merge, but as a result you'll probably notice that some of the dupe records are back. It should have fixed the problem with collection records lacking names though - let me know if there are any that we missed.
