< report >Would it be possible to get a VN relation filter? Being able to exclude games that have prequels or "original game"s, or being able to search for series etc. would be quite useful for me.

< report >When I search for link, why do I get results which have non android/ios releases? Even if those platforms are alongside android/ios, I expect them to not show up.

This is probably the negation on the "any" part that makes the query hard to understand.
Your upper filter is "not having a release without at least android or ios" which means "only have releases with at least android or ios".
If you want "only have releases with only android or ios", that means "not having a release which is at least on another platform than android or ios" linkLast modified on 2021-11-30 at 21:50

< report >Yeah but I would expect the invert to do exactly what you did instead of actually having to do it...
It appears that even with single, you get the same kind of results.

< report >Why is there a difference between link and link (which is that VN:language doesn't include TBA languages?)?

< report >#133 from my experience the "available in xx language" takes into consideration if the entry is released in said language. Same for similar queries (eg. platform).

As for the why... well would it really be available if it is not yet released?Last modified on 2023-01-20 at 18:12

< report >That shouldn't be taken into consideration imo. If you want restriction of time, use time filters. If you want languages, you should find all language past and present.

past and present.
That's exactly what it does :P

Anyways, I find quite unreliable to have future languages and platforms to be excluded from filters called language and platform but I guess it's a choice and I will have to deal with it.
