WinterSnowfall: To all wondering if there is a mystery game out there, hidden in the vast ocean of GOG API data - today is your lucky day!

https://gamesdb.gog.com/platforms/gog/external_releases/1449801983

Edit: Attached image of API data. Once on the internet, always on the internet, Mr. GOGBear, you should know that.
Days Gone?

Only the GOGBear knows. Might as well be a test entry... there's all sort of detritus in the APIs.

WinterSnowfall:
I believe you can remove "Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure" from the airtable until further change.

While Windows offline is version 1.0 and galaxy is version 1.3, both were created on 12 February 2018, so they're likely the same version, except that someone mislabeled one of the versions.

I also believe you can remove "Lumino City" from the airtable until further change.

While Mac offline is version build 12.02.2016 (gog-3) and galaxy is version 14.09.2016, both were created on 14 September 2016, so they're likely the same version, except that someone mislabeled one of the versions.

Thank you for letting me know, mrkgnao. Will do so on my next update.

Fair warning to anyone checking the discrepancy list regularly - it may so happen I will update it Monday mid-day rather than over the weekend. As was the case today.

As a brief report from the watchful eye over these things: I have seen some of the older discrepancies getting fixed over the last few weeks, so the situation is gradually improving. If we set aside what my script has picked up last week and is potentially still fresh, there are only 37 older discrepancies still in effect - some of them on demos and some potentially false positives that I have no way of checking on.

Question to all you more resourceful folk out there:

While perusing the GOG APIs, my scripts have come across an entry titled "Alibaba". Any idea what that might be? Are there any games, old or upcoming with this title?

Due to the obviously way more famous online retailer, my searches have returned nothing useful.

I guess it could just be a code word, much like "Project Spekulatius" (that turned out to be Saints Row: The Third Remastered), but I'll bump one more time.

The 11 oldest entries on the AirTable are from 2020-12-04, which gives the false impression that these are the oldest discrepancies on GOG, whereas that date is, I assume, simply the date you started collecting this information.

If you want, I have the real dates for the discrepancies of six of these, which you could update manually:
2020-12-04 1118073204 Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy => 2020-01-20
2020-12-04 1196128708 1971 Project Helios => 2020-08-11
2020-12-04 1333227204 Double Kick Heroes => 2020-08-13
2020-12-04 1920288044 Mutropolis Demo => 2020-09-11
2020-12-04 2086192498 Indivisible => 2020-06-23
2020-12-04 2147483119 Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Dry Twice => 2020-10-23

The remaining five are more problematic, so I don't want to commit to dates for them.

Specifically for the two Project Zomboid, it is my understanding, while I don't own the game, that there is a beta offline installer, which you are not testing for, which is being updated independently of the "abandoned" default offline installer, and which is currently up-to-date with galaxy. So I think you can delete these from the list, probably indefinitely, unless you plan to test for beta offline installers (which other games might also have).

Yes and no. I started tracking in early 2021, but backdated these, since I was aware they were a bit older (did not know exactly when to place them though). Since they are, in a sense, "manually updated" already, at least for purposes of separation from the rest, I can of course set them to something more accurate based on what you shared. Thanks!

I am in theory testing against all installers - there is no way, however, at least from what I remember, to determine which is the latest entry in the list, so I simply check by order. The beta must be added at the bottom for some reason... Thanks for letting me know, I will add exceptions for the game and remove the entries next week.

Yes. From what I have read, they are at the bottom.
