'Platforms' section not showing all added platforms
two games are linked below where the listed 'Platforms' (near the top of the game page, below 'Genre') don't correspond with the full set of platforms in the Release Dates section.
in both instances the missing platforms are 'Mac' and 'Linux', don't know whether it's an issue specific to those platforms or merely coincidental.
of note is that one of these (Transistor) also has some platform information added on the Companies page, while the other (Nuclear Throne) does not.
Heya! Well spotted thank you. This has now been added to our backlog so we can get around to a fix in the near future. Stay tuned!
I just wanted to note that this is a pretty annoying bug for API users as well. My implementation of the API needs to have accurate platform data so I often add/edit platforms in IGDB so we both benefit from the corrected data. With this not being updated correctly and thus not getting through to the API my time spend editing all these games seems wasted, even more so since it's also not reflected on IGDB.
I don't mean to sound spoiled with this being a free API and all, I just mean that if this isn't fixed soonish I'll have to start manually overriding in my own database to move forward with my project and that seems like such a waste of good data. :/
When a Platform has been entered in error on a Title's Page (be it listing a different game of the same title or HD remake), removing it from the listings does not remove the listing after an accepted update.
This has been confirmed by deleting all listings, in Multiplayer Modes, Release Dates, Companies, and PEGI Age Ratings.
