AGS: Duplicate games in the Launcher scanner, or games confused by something else with mass add

Description

I know the AGS engine games are being added to the detector now, but there are many cases right now where they're detected... but still added with 'ags-fallback-#' which i find strange. There are also some cases where they're added as different engines than they should be. This is just a listing, and you're free to close this issue if it's 'too wide' or will change too fast to verify later.

Games which scan like if from another engine (too):

[maniacsports-win]
platform=windows
gameid=maniacsports
description=Maniac Sports (Windows/English)
language=en
path=/media/i3/Mordred/Games/Adventure Game Studio/Maniac Mansion Deluxe
engineid=director
guioptions=noAspect lang_English

[maniacmansiondeluxe]
gameid=maniacmansiondeluxe
description=Maniac Mansion Deluxe
path=/media/i3/Mordred/Games/Adventure Game Studio/Maniac Mansion Deluxe
engineid=ags
guioptions=noLang 

and

[vvcyber-win]
platform=windows
gameid=vvcyber
description=Victor Vector & Yondo: The Cyberplasm Formula (Windows/English)
language=en
path=/media/i3/Mordred/Games/Adventure Game Studio/VIRMACHINA
engineid=director
guioptions=noAspect lang_English

[ags-fallback-17]
gameid=ags
description=Adventure Game Studio Game
path=/media/i3/Mordred/Games/Adventure Game Studio/VIRMACHINA
engineid=ags
guioptions=noLang

Games which have duplicate 'ags-fallback' and 'actual game id' but do recognize they're ags games:

[adateinthepark]
gameid=adateinthepark
description=A Date in the Park (itch.io/Steam)
extra=itch.io/Steam
path=/media/i3/Mordred/Games/Adventure Game Studio/A Date in the Park
engineid=ags
guioptions=noLang 

[ags-fallback-39]
gameid=ags
description=Adventure Game Studio Game
path=/media/i3/Mordred/Games/Adventure Game Studio/A Date in the Park
engineid=ags
guioptions=noLang 


[suspiciousmind]
gameid=suspiciousmind
description=Suspicious Mind
path=/media/i3/Mordred/Games/Adventure Game Studio/Suspicious Mind
engineid=ags
guioptions=noLang 


[ags-fallback-2]
gameid=ags
description=Adventure Game Studio Game
path=/media/i3/Mordred/Games/Adventure Game Studio/Suspicious Mind
engineid=ags
guioptions=noLang 
 

[ags-fallback-6]
gameid=ags
description=Adventure Game Studio Game
path=/media/i3/Mordred/Games/Adventure Game Studio/Infinite Monkeys
engineid=ags
guioptions=noLang 

[infinitemonkeys]
gameid=infinitemonkeys
description=Infinite Monkeys
path=/media/i3/Mordred/Games/Adventure Game Studio/Infinite Monkeys
engineid=ags
guioptions=noLang 

...

In short there are a lot of these, and as they all seem to be the same bug, i'm not going to keep typing them.

The first two duplicates are caused by entries in the Director detection tables. The maniac sports has been fixed some time ago while i just pushed the vvcyber one.
The ags-fallback entries are actual ags games that were not present in the tables at the time, probably the linux/data only version or some newer version.
Many have been added by now, could you please give it a new run? Thanks

@i30817 Has the situation improved? Do you still have misdetections and/or undetected versions?

comment:5 by tag2015, 11 months ago

Closing due to lack of communication (and the fact that hundreds of games have been added since then).

Please reopen or open a new issue if you find other games that are not detected/misdetected

This can be closed i think. Games scanned as 'fallback' don't duplicate anymore and the two normal duplicates i mentioned here no longer happen.
