Gamebase Amiga Database for Linux

Hi all,
I'm a linux user and I installed jGameBase with e-UAE to play my favourites amiga games. I need the database files included in the archive:
GameBase Amiga v1.6 Setup.exe


Can anyone add a link to download them?

Thanks

I don't want to use Wine to install it...and I haven't a dual boot machine to run Winzozz.
Can you post here the DB directory?

Thanks

Once in your User CP just click these three spots in the given order. Shouldn't be that hard now

Thanks, now I'll try to add this DB. I think it could be useful to add a fixed link to the forum or in the home page.

There's a problem with "Extras": I downloaded the Extras_modified.7z file, extracted to a custom directory and then set the correct path in jGameBase, but, when I verify available files, it doesn't find any.
Maybe the database entries are wrong?

Thanks

Given that it was made for Windows, it's possible that the paths in the database (since we're talking relative paths, that mostly means the A, B, C, ... subdirs) don't have exactly the same case as the files in the archives, e.g. the database may have "S\Soemthing.zip", while the archive may have "s\Something.zip", which doesn't matter on Windows filesystems, but matters very much on most *nix filesystems. That's something I'd check first. Otherwise I don't really know, as I've never used jGameBase.

It could be but for games, music and screenshots there are no problems...
