Problems Uploading Art

Post by mariijane » Sat Jun 02, 2018 9:06 pm

hi everyone!

i'm new here and i'm a huge fan of your service. i'm in the process of adding a number of missing games to the database however whenever i upload the album art, it appears broken. An example is here:

http://legacy.thegamesdb.net/game/55766/

i tried viewing it from multiple browsers/mobile and while the listing is there, there's still no images.

i apologize if this isn't where this goes: i checked the wiki and couldn't find anything T.T

If you click where it says "Front" below where the artwork should be, it's still there.

This is a side effect of the restructuring for v2 (beta here, note that entries on the beta are unlikely to transfer: https://beta.thegamesdb.net/), and won't be fixed on the old site.
We're curious to see how new projects use TGDB API.
If you have a new public project, please provide a link to it so we can highlight cool new applications! 8-)

Hi,

thanks for reporting this, but I'm afraid the old site is broken here and there and we've decided it's not worth the time trying to fix these things as the new site will be going live in 2 weeks, however, even though some images might not show up correctly, they're being uploaded to the server as such when we migrate the data to the new site they'll work correctly.
