Hrm, is it intended that all the Roguebasin Links point to "Edit Page?".
They all have the &action=edit appendix.

No (I added this appendix for myself because I wanted to edit RogueBasin and forgot to remove it). I hope Slash will fix it when he puts it on RogueTemple.

Thanks :) (I've updated the link at Roguebasin)

(I think the separation between "Search Criteria" and "Filters" is not logical now. I would put Category together with other search criteria)

Is the IRLDB still being updated? It isn't showing some roguelikes.

Hopefully all you need to do is update roguebasin?
Maybe you can take it upon your self to add the relevent pages on the wiki.

I think Slash has not set up auto-update yet.

Seems the IRLDb is still not updated... any problems with that?

Edit: seems there are too many pages in RogueBasin now and All page no longer lists them all, the scripts need to be updated. (Maybe it can be also done easier by someone with admin rights at RogueBasin.)

Edit: that was easy to fix, here is an update to the update script, and here is a fix to multi-line data in template for MetaCollider. Also, my copy of IRLDb (the link in my signature) is updated.

It's not picking up some roguelikes (e.g. Anime Angband).  I'll post in more detail later (probably).

[Edit] Ditto for DaJAngband and Discworld Angband.  I'm sensing a theme here. ;-)

[Edit x 2] In any case I've updated a whole bunch of pages on RogueBasin so I suggest you do a reload.  :P

I have been a bit busy, however I will try to run the update script...

If I remember correctly you supplied me with a C file and a python script, can you send me the latest package with the fixes? /(Or should I while a bit more until you correct them?)

Hmm, this could be my fault.   :-\  I (re)introduced "theme" and now "released / update" into the Angband templates, maybe it's choking on them.  Although there are a half dozen games with 'genre' field given and that didn't appear to faze it.

Looking down the list of List of roguelikes by theme there are only a few active *band variants with significant deviations from the standard 'Fantasy' theme, so (in retrospect) that wasn't necessarily a great move.  I think people will like knowing how long games have been around so I think the 'released / update' dual field should stay.

I think I have fixed everything I wanted. All the things are linked to in this thread :) In this package you have to replace the C program and the Perl script.

Edit: IRLDb currently recognizes only game-*** templates, angband-variant-*** templates are not recognized at all. So all games using the later template are not recognized (ToME and ZAngband are recognized, because they are using game-***). I think accepting Angband variants would require some redesign of IRLDb (as Angband variants use only a subset of game fields).

Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup inconveniently includes a html link in the 'updated' field.  The database output includes a spurious ] at the end of it.  Same thing with GearHead2, Beggar and ChessRogue.

But I guess you haven't updated the data since the last time yet?  Maybe you've already fixed that.
