Tibia Evolve Rule

I've been a player of the MMORPG called Tibia for some odd years now. I'm kind of surprised that a place like Evolve, with the number of games in it's detection library, doesn't already have Tibia support. So with very little playing around, I came up with the following (extremely simple) game detection rule.

<game>
    <id>1071314</id>
    <name>Tibia</name>
    <conditions>
      <cond name="is-tibia-exe-present" type="exe-present" exe="Tibia.exe" />
      <cond name="has-tibia-dat" type="file-present" file="{exedir}Tibia.dat"/>
      <cond name="has-tibia-spr" type="file-present" file="{exedir}Tibia.spr"/>
    </conditions>
    <detection>
      <variant order="1" name="default">
        <if cond="is-tibia-exe-present" />
        <if cond="has-tibia-dat" />
        <if cond="has-tibia-spr" />
      </variant>
    </detection>
  </game>

You can learn about making, editing, and using rules at the Gamesdb Rules guide page on Evolve. The caveat with manually adding this, is that the the gamesdb file is regularly synchronized with an official version from Evolve, so local changes to the file do not last. As well, it seems like even if a game rule works locally, your friends will not see you as playing an unsupported game.

I have submitted Tibia for review to be a supported game on Evolve. Though I'm not sure I should have my hopes up. As Tibia is a fairly established game with a massive fanbase, I would have guessed if Evolve was up to supporting it, it already would be supported.

Updates:
Adjusted the rule to more properly meet rule requirements.
Rule was accepted.
