Add values from v15 to v16

Fri Jun 05, 2020 6:02 pm

Hi all,

in my version v15 i have much entries added.... games, screenshots, manuals, worktrough, d81 and much others.
Is ther a way to import these values in the v16 but not each value hand by hand.
In Tools i found only the way to import personal infos.

If you added all your updated games as NEW entries?
It will be possible to cut and paste those entries to the end of the v16 database file using Microsoft Access.
But you must then edit the NEW Extras for those NEW game IDs manually.

If you edited already existing game entries?
adding new programmer, company, musician...
Then you are out of luck.
Editing a GameBase which is still in development is never a good idea, as so many entries are edited or even deleted with every new release.
So any updates you make, will always be lost in the next version.

submitting missing walkthroughs, manuals, better game versions to Michael is the best option.
so they get added to the master database.
