Linking to HOL from the forum

For instance you'd do... (like wikipedia)

[[Toki]]

Or [[Speedball2]]

And it'd take you to HOL entry.

Would be good for fast referencing.

These may help:

http://eab.abime.net/misc.php?do=bbcode#hol

Might not be exactly what you are looking for but it's still helpful enough.

It's actually easier to just link it than that method, google "Hol gamename" and link. With that method one actually has to grab the ID number

Maybe {HOL}Cadaver{/HOL} would make the database spit the game.

It's not quite that simple as game names in hol are not necessarily unique (at least not yet anyway.)

eg. Robocod could link to multiple games (ECS/AGA/CD32), Indiana Jones 3 (adv/action) and so on

Also names that are a subset of another name might prove problematic (eg. Speedball, Speedball 2; Stardust; Super Stardust)

It's possible that the CodyId could be used, but you would have to look it up so it really defeats the purpose.

Yes, maybe, well, if it lead to a disambiguation page it wouldn't be bad either.

Or even just search results of a string. When multiple spit search results, when returning an identic string redirect to game directly.

Admittedly the AGA\ECS variety is pretty brutal.
