Clean scraping API
#47
(2013-04-02, 16:56)garbear Wrote: The best approach here is probably similar to my platform comparison algorithm, canonicalize the titles first (translate II to 2, brothers to bros, etc. like RCB does currently) and then run a fuzzy string comparison on the canonicalized titles.

+1 on this, With thegamesdb module i was able to "trick" the title retrieving by using the name "Wonderboy III.sms" and it returned "Wonderboy" (the first in the series). Giving the full/correct name "Wonderboy III The Dragons Trap.sms" returned the correct result. Altenative titles/platforms may also need to be taken into account as, for example the platform "Playstation" is also commonly named "PSX" or "PS1".
On top of that regions may also need to be considered. Mario Bros. 2 (JP) is a totaly different game than Mario Bros. 2 (US)/(EU).
