How is box art selected?

Post by Marll » Fri Mar 29, 2019 8:13 pm

I have seen that I can add or edit games in the DB, but wondering how the box art that is displayed is selected. There isn't a way that I can see to specifically edit the picture used, and I see a few (specifically in the TurboGrafx-16 section) that aren't quite right that could be corrected to show the right version.

I found the same with DOS games. There is no way to report wrong images, or replace them.

Such as

As far as I can tell, you can replace images by choosing "edit" -> "upload images" and uploading new images for the specified category.

That is not entirely true and screenshots once put 5 images and does not allow you to replace them for that is a problem that should solve

covers are replaced as new ones are updated, however as Kirito mentioned other images have a limit of 5 uploads, after which only mods can remove/replace them.
