Could someone help me on how to use the database with CUETools 2.15? I get the error "database access error: The remote name could not be resolved: 'http'" always, when I put "http://vgmdb.net:80/cddb/en" as CTDB server and as Freedb server.

"21/17 freedb"

And of course not a single freaking one of them works.

That means 21 lookups for the first disc and 17 lookups for the second disc.

You don't need to retrieve a sever list, just add vgmdb as a server manually (as you have already done) and save your settings. Select all the tracks for a disc, right click Tagging -> Get tags from freedb

Thanks, now it seems to work, sort of. While the tracklist is correct, a completely different artist, album, year and genre is shown.
Also, while default works, "/cddb/ja/" does not. Do you know why?

I'm sure this has been answered before, but I can't find it.

I notice when an album has multiple artists it just throws them all in the artist field instead of separating them per track. Is that a limitation of cddb? or just something that's too much work to implement properly? Not that big of a deal it's mostly just laziness on my part to fill it on a per track basis.

(off-topic: I haven't been on here in years but I hope you're all doing well and in good health)

When you edit tracklists you'll note that there's simply no way to credit artists per track here on VGMdb so that limitation extends to cddb accesses. So far we put the per track credits (where available) into the notes below the tracklists.

It has been suggested before, so I think its technically possible?

I was tagging METAL GEAR RISING REVENGEANCE Original Soundtrack (KJP-0015) and "Konami Kukeiha Club" comes up as "Konami Kureha Club". Where is that data being pulled from if not the "Composed by" field?

The incorrect term seems to be sourced from the calendar section: https://vgmdb.net/db/calendar.php?year=2013&month=2

freedb pulls in the Composer field as-is, it doesn't resolve linked artists. The Composer field said "Kureha" but someone linked it so it shows up as normal on the page. I fixed it on the composer field.

I am trying to get XLD to work with this, but it doesn't work if I use the cddb/ja one, the cddb/en one works fine. Do I need some settings to make it work?
