Loads a questions

HI thought I ask around, mostly about things I found while using Lutris.

The grid images:

  1. is there a way to use steam’s sizes on the grids? (460x215)
  2. is there a way to add your own custom image, I’ve added a few that I doubt anyone else will ever play, thus don’t see the need to add the game to the database.

Game Runners:

  1. is there a way to setup emulators from within Lutris?
  2. Will Lutris one day support all the ways that emulators can be used, IE in FS-UAE you could use fs-uae-launcher df05121d-e093-5e11-be88-b1cbbb36f03d to launch Lotus Turbo Challenge II

No, not without touching the code. Personally I’m more interested in adding covers, as they already exist for almost all games and there are online databases out there that we can use.

Soon. And in the meantime, you can add them manually in ~/.local/share/lutris/banners.

If by that you mean “add emulators”, no you can’t add runners. But you can add them as a game with Linux as the runner.

More options will be added progressively, this is all I can prophesy. :slight_smile:

I was more thinking on the emulators/runners already in Lutris, like mednafen or MAME/MESS :nerd:

This is something that I think the LutrisDB might happen to run in regularly and wondering how it’ll be handled by the game database.

Let’s take Spider-Man for example, there is eight games with the same name. AFAIK the database doesn’t allow two games to share the same name. Tried it and it won’t :frowning:

In the future will we be allowed to have a few games that have the same name.

For games with the same name, use the year the game came out. For example, there are two games named ‘Portal’, a 1986 interactive novel for Amiga, Apple II, Commodore 64, and DOS, and Valve’s 2007 first-person puzzle game. For those two, the newer game (better known) shows up as simply ‘Portal’, and the other would be added as ‘Portal (1986)’.
