    I'm on 5.3.0 beta 11. This is happening only with Scummvm games.
    It only shows game ID, Snapshot (when available), and Players:255. No release, genre, cart_disk image etc... at all.
    @Wiimpathy it happens even if I delete gametdb_offsets.bin

    fixed it. will be releasing soon.

    basically I used m_plugin.pluginMagicWord to get the platformName. but certain functions caused pluginMagicWord to change to a different plugin. which caused game info to not find the game in the xml because it was the wrong xml.

    Here is my updated database for Dosbox and Scummvm games.
    Download
    IMPORTANT NOTE (please read): I changed some game names, and I know that not everyone will agree with my choices. I wanted games from the same series to sit next to each other, in order to do that I had to rename some game names in the database (e.g. "Riven: the sequel to Myst" ---> "Myst 2 - Riven" or "The Curse of Monkey Island"---> "Monkey Island 3 - The Curse of Monkey Island").

    In the Dos database I included source ports games from other plugins (Eduke32, and Prboom). No sense in leaving them all by themselves, or trying to run them in Dosbox at perfect speed (impossible on the wii).

    One final note: when you update the database ini and xml files, remember to always delete the respective 'gametdb_offsets.bin' and let Wiiflow recreate it.

    Updated / added games:
    (this is how your .conf, .grp and .wad files should be named to be recognized):

    Alley Cat
    Alone in the dark
    Another World
    Bio Menace
    Commander Keen 4 - Secret of the Oracle
    Commander Keen 5 - The Armageddon Machine
    Commander Keen 6 - Aliens Ate My Babysitter

    Ultima VII part 2 - Serpent Isle
    Ultima VIII - Pagan
    Wolfenstein 3D
    X-Wing
    Zeliard

    (This is how your games should be renamed in your wiiflow/plugins/scummvm.ini after "description="):

    Beneath a Steel Sky
    Blade Runner
    Broken Sword - The Shadow of the Templars
    Broken Sword 2 - The Smoking Mirror
    Dreamweb
    Full Throttle
    Gabriel Knight - Sins Of The Fathers
    I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream
    Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
    Lands Of Lore - The Throne Of Chaos
    Legend of Kyrandia - Book 1
    Legend of Kyrandia - Book 2 - The Hand of Fate
    Loom
    Lost in Time
    Maniac Mansion
    Might And Magic 4 - Clouds Of Xeen
    Might And Magic 5 - Darkside Of Xeen
    Might And Magic 4+5 - World Of Xeen
    Monkey Island - The Secret of Monkey Island
    Monkey Island 2 - Lechuck's Revenge
    Monkey Island 3 - The Curse of Monkey Island
    Maniac Mansion
    Maniac Mansion 2 - Day Of The Tentacle
    Myst

    Quest For Glory 1 - So You Want To Be A Hero
    Return to Zork
    Sam And Max Hit The Road
    The Dig
    The Neverhood Chronicles
    Zork - Grand Inquisitor

    So, if you don't like these names, edit the ini and xml files in plugin_data, and rename your png files in cart_box and snapshots folders accordingly.

    Thanks. However, the DOS.xml you posted is malformed. Not sure it's working properly in Wiiflow. 1 closing tag is missing:
    <title>Pinball Dreams Deluxe/title> should be <title>Pinball Dreams Deluxe</title>
    On linux, there's xmllint to check xml validity, something similar should exist on Windows too.

    That's too bad, I'm really sorry. I had no issues in Wiiflow. Thanks, I will correct it and check supergrafx too

    Little update, see Wiiflow_Database_V3.zip attached in the opening post.
    - 3 new databases: CREATIVISION, GAME & WATCH, SuperGrafx.
    - Thomson TO5 fixed. It contained non ut8 characters.

    In this post, you'll find a pack of images for Game & watch and SuperGrafx.
    G&W need better images though.

    For those who want to edit the databases and want to check their validity, there's xmlstarlet for Windows too.
    No need to install anything. From command line, for example you type:

    xmlstarlet val -w "e:\wiiflow\plugins_data\TO5\TO5.xml"

    Thanks @Wiimpathy!
    I had already included all images for Supergrafx's cart and snaps in my pack, though (I had to fix some of the Hucards cart images that were trimmed, like the one you posted)

    About the SGFX, I also noticed that you removed the two Darius games (plus and alpha).
    While it's true that they are PC engine games, they were designed to support the improved SGFX hardware, as advertised on their cover by the "PC-SG" logo. Thery're the only 2 games with this feature, so I think they should be both in the PCE and SGFX databases.

    Ah, ok. I must admit that I just scraped the data and almost didn't check anything. Your SGFX database and images seem better but your link is dead. Would you mind re-uploading please?

    Thanks for reporting it to me. I don't know what happened. I re uploaded it
    https://www.mediafire.com/file/i8xxyzx57hpt41k/wiiflow_SGFX_database.rar/file
    Your images are nice. I think that your snapshots are actually better
    My database is missing several crc numbers from yours. The fact is that I don't know how to find crc's for games. I tried that screenscraper.fr site but I cannot seem to navigate it. I just found a list of single crc numbers googling around and put it there.

    hey guys, so in my plugins_data folder I have MSX2, MSX2+, MSXTURBO, PC9801, and SATELLAVIEW.

    do I need those? and I have a plugin for PC8801 so what about a database for PC8801 instead of PC9801?

    Oh and can I get rid of the MAME database?

    All MSX should be merged. I've never bothered to look into this. There could be alt version for the same game, not sure...

    Satellaview has also different data since the BS games could be really different. Problem is they have the same titles sometimes(Firemen). It's only useful if you have a Satellaview plugin to seperate it from the SuperNes.

    Most of the Nec PC... databases are empty. It was left hoping we'll fill the info someday.

    You can delete Mame. Everything is in Arcade now.
