    Awhile back I added all my coco games to thegamesdb, but I don’t see how to set the correct platformid in es_systems.cfg, in the old style there was PLATFORMID=####

    The coco’s id is the following.

    <name>TRS-80 Color Computer</name>

    I had a similar issue a while back – think it was when I was trying to scrape Vectrex games. It was showing up as an unknown system.

    I do remember getting an answer from someone saying the scraper looks at an online resource with the list of known systems – not a local resource.

    I just ended up doing a manual scrape 1 by 1 since there was only about 15 game or so.

    Doing a forum search from scraper source might point you to the right post.
