DataBase Requests/Questions

Recommended Posts

I have a quick question. So i was thinking Hey why not have multiple .xml files for different things in case i want to narrow my games down so i dont have to look through 1000 games. I understand there are Genre's and even Favorite lists you can use. But wat i was thinking was using filtered XMLs.

 

1. Are there XMLs out there for US games only?

2. Are there XMLs out there that are filtered to be like top 100 or 200 or 300 games on that system?

3. If there isnt. Would people be interested if when i DID go through and make them that i share them?

4. If so, how do i upload/share stuff like that.

The official databases give preference to US games, but also contain exclusives from other regions. You may be able to find some in the Databases forum, but if you can't US only are the easiest to filter since they are based on US titles. I've seen some Top X databases in the Databases forum and I know vaderag recently posted a Top 100 DS to the Upload Here part of the Downloads section.

No worries i didnt know if it was the right one but i figured that was the ONLY other thing i saw that dealt with Databases lol.
