how to set the script to get FULLSCREEN at game startup as it is now in WINDOWED mode
There are several ways of doing this. For example, there is a "Gamebase Amiga.uae" file in the folder. You can edit this file and change one line.
from:
gfx_fullscreen_amiga=false
to:
gfx_fullscreen_amiga=true

(Same for WHDLoad.uae).

any chance you could upload this to some other place

I forgot about the 5GB limit...

The EAB file server Google drive is updated and you can download from there:

Hi,

while working on completing my Gamebase Amiga collection, I've added several new screenshots and game files along the way.

Belgarath kindly allowed me to share my "version 2.3" with you. You can find it on the EAB FTP server and on mega.nz:

Just out of interest I compared the sizes V2.3 vs 2.1
of games, extras, screenshots, and music.

I thought V2.3 might be a bit bigger, but (on my HDD) it is only 8GB vs 14GB in V2.1
And V2.3 has roughly 9000 files less.

I found my V2.1 Extras folder to be 9.6GB, the V2.3 version is just 5.7GB. Some Details:
I found the V2.1 WHDLoad folder to be 5.5GB instead 2.6GB in V2.3
I found the V2.1 SPS folder to be 3.2GB instead of 2.3 in V2.3
I found a folder Boxscans in V2.1 with 234MB, which does not exist in V2.3
Music in V2.3 is roughly 5MB smaller.

I found my V2.1 games folder to be 4.2GB, the V2.3 version is 2.6GB.
Example subfolders S/A/B each(!) have a difference of up to 200MB and 90 files

On the other hand,
The numbers in GB´s "Verify available files" do not confirm the differences.
V2.3 ca 19900,
V2.1 ca 19600
Is there so much unused stuff in old V2.1?!

Can you give some insides what was moved/deleted/zipped? I hope nothing went missing from 2.1 to 2.3 ?!
I am not saying something is wrong here, I am just surprised of the quite big difference. File size and file count. Re-zipping might be a reason?!

Many thanks!

Used the nice little "Treesize free" tool to compare folder structures and sizes

More deep diving:
I found my V2.1 version of games/S
has a separate extra zip file for many (all?) multi-ADF games.

Example
While SpaceQuest4 has 6 ADFs in V2.3,
in my V2.1 it has 6 ADFs plus an extra zip with all 6 identical ADFs in it. So redundancy.
Don´t know if that is a leftover from the "dirty hand-made" 2.0 to 2.1 update.

My Boxscans folder in V2.1 seems to be an older version of current "Cover Scans".


I will have a look if the same issuea appear on the other strange file/size differences.
This calms me down a lot!
;-)

I start trusting the V2.3 more than my old V2.1
