Longplay addition to Gamebase

Thu Oct 04, 2007 6:18 am

I've just tried your vbs script to enter our C64 longplays into the gamebase database and it works fine. Just wanted to ask if it's possible to add them as avis as well, so if someone has them unrared on disc they are listed under extras too.

Currently when I select a game and the corresponding longplay from Extras > Longplay Winrar opens up instead of any media player playing back the file right away.

The support for RAR archives still needs to be implemented in the GameBase frontend. When this feature is available, RARed longplays can be automatically played from the frontend.

If you want to add the longplays as unRARed extras simply edit the VBS and change the filenames into the AVI filenames before executing the script.

Great, I'm looking forward to it. BTW, I've found a small bug in the current installment. When one selects "play SID" on Ultima VI" the music of Ultima V is played back.
