Games Database - Graphics: HD
« on: 01 Mar 2021, 06:11 »
Just noticed a fun quirk in the AGS Games Database.
If you set the game resolution as "other" rather than any of the pre-defined resolutions, the game page displays resolution as just "HD".
Since there is no way to write in a value yourself, this might seem a bit off, considering in the case of my latest game I selected "other" because the resolution I used was slightly smaller than the smallest available resolution on the list.

Now my 320x180 game is listed as "HD".  (laugh)

Yes, depending on where you access the site it's either called the AGS games database or just Games.
Though that is kind of a valid point: when adding a new game to the database you can choose a resolution for it, and the information is displayed on the game page, but that doesn't seem to be available as a search criteria even in the category search, which is the closest we have to an advanced search tool.
