EmuMovies API "doubles"


Phoenix255

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am building (programming) support to integrate EmuMovies into emuControlCenter (using the API), but i found some double platforms i guess..., hopefully someone could clearify this?

1. Platform: MCA Laserdisc Arcade platform

- Daphe

- Laserdisc

I assume this is the same platform right? where Daphe = Emulator for Laserdisc? http://www.daphne-em...e3/index_hi.php

2. for the Nintendo NES platform:

- Nintendo

- Nintendo NES

What is the diffrence between these when using the downloader?

3. for the NEC Turbografx-16/PC-Engine platform

- NEC TurboGrafx 16

- NEC PC Engine

The NEC PC-Engine is the same as NEC Turbografx-16, why are there 2 platforms in Emumovies? http://en.wikipedia....i/TurboGrafx-16

Hopefully someone could clear this up and/or merge the EmuMovies platforms stated above...

Not Sure what mca laserdisc is, however the "laserdisc" entry can be ignored as it is empty and includes solely for the gamesdbase website.

The Actual Laserdisc sets are

Daphne - Games Playable with Daphne Emulator

American Laser Games - Also Playable in Daphne with the singe add-on

MSX Laserdisc - Laser games that were released for the MSX home computer with Laserdisc add-on

WoW Action Max - VHS based games also playable in Daphne with Singe Add-On

2. for the Nintendo NES platform:

- Nintendo

- Nintendo NES

I don't see a category that only says nintendo, but the official one is Nintendo NES

3. for the NEC Turbografx-16/PC-Engine platform

- NEC TurboGrafx 16

- NEC PC Engine

NEC TurboGrafx 16 are the US releases, NEC PC Engine are the Japanese ones

Hi Circo,

1.

All Laserdisc technology comes from MCA & Philips (but is licensed by MCA) there is no "Daphne" hardware, so that's where our ECC "platform name" comes from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laserdisc

But thanks for clarifying, ECC Laserdisc will be Daphne for EmuMovies...

2.

Ups...my mistake, you are right! "Nintendo" does not exist :pinch:

3.

Yes, but it's the same hardware right?, only 2 different names...

Since the screens of the games on this hardware do not differ (only in language) maybe a merging of these platforms is a suggestion?...and call it NEC Turbografx-16/PC-Engine platform?, so people could download content for these platforms regardless wich country they are made in...

The way i see it now is that people (for example) have to select this platform twice to download all snap's for their games on the NEC / PC Engine, if they have all games in one folder...

As addition to the point above, this is the same as you only have "Magnavox Odyssey 2" in EmuMovies, but it goes on by many names:

"The Magnavox Odyssey², known in Europe as the Philips Videopac G7000, in Brazil as the Philips Odyssey, in the United States as the Magnavox Odyssey²"

So i asume when using the "Magnavox Odyssey 2" platform in EmuMovies i also get all snaps regardless of the country...right?

http://en.wikipedia....gnavox_Odyssey�

For ECC i will use the "NEC Turbografx-16" ID...
