Forums - Website Topics - GameDB VC and eShop issues

Decided today out of all days to update my WiiU games collection here at VGC.
Seems that quite a few of WiiU's VC games are missing, so I was adding the VC main category games into my collection.

There are missing titles like Dr. Mario and now reached at TLoZ Minish Cap that never came out on Wii's VC.
Already submitted Dr. Mario into VC, but not sure what to do with Minish Cap.
For completeness I would also put it in VC. What do you think?

I noticed there is sometimes an entry inside WiiU itself, but they are iconless ugly.
See the Minish Cap example here: https://www.vgchartz.com/game/82797/the-legend-of-zelda-the-minish-cap/

EDIT: And now reached Metroid Prime Trilogy VC title xD

Now I can't add an eShop title into the DB.

Both the developer and publisher don't exist, and I get this error "Invalid entry - please select from the list..."...

Tried to add my whole NS collection, and a few other issues came up.

First the missing developers/publishers:

https://www.nintendolife.com/games/switch-eshop/cyber_protocol
https://www.nintendolife.com/games/switch-eshop/no_heroes_here
https://www.nintendolife.com/games/switch-eshop/way_of_the_passive_fist

For some reason I can't add these games as there is no (add) next to Owners:

https://www.vgchartz.com/game/224791/valiant-hearts-the-great-war/?region=All
https://www.vgchartz.com/game/229522/bloodroots/?region=All
https://www.vgchartz.com/game/224598/mechstermination-force/?region=All
https://www.vgchartz.com/game/221359/penguin-wars/?region=All
https://www.vgchartz.com/game/221420/bad-north/?region=All

Tried wishlisting some to add them through the game list, but they don't even show up there...

I'll pass this thread along to the people that are better with the GameDB and at updating it. If you can create a list of developers and publishers that are missing that will be very helpful.

As far as not being able to add games to your list as the "add" is missing next to Owners, it is because there is no release date for those games in the GameDB.

Regarding the missing developers/publishers, I've gone ahead and added all the ones you listed to the database.

As Trunks said, in order to 'own' a game it needs to have a release date added first.

Let me know if there's anything else you need.

Thanks for taking your time with this Trunks and Machina.
Yesterday I was travelling and didn't have time to list the developers, so thanks again Machina for going through the links.

It is still funny that I could not add but still saw some titles had one owner, either way I updated the release dates so hopefully that will be solved soon.

Yesterday I added a few titles into the Game DB but I don't remember which ones.
In the past you could see the titles that you added in your points details, but now it just says "Game submitted & approved".
Is there a place were I can see the last titles I have added to the database?
