hi, i just painfully went through the process of getting the developer copy of wireshark due to a weird bug that caused me to highlight and scroll anything that i hovered my mouse over. the only problem is you guys took the geolite database support away and replaced that with MMDB file support. i have the mmdb files that i need, but cant seem to find the setting let alone the folder or location to choose the mmdb files. can you guys please help me?

MaxMind stopped distributing GeoLite Legacy databases in April 2018, which probably explains things.

Do you need to understand where to place the mmdb files? That's also covered in the link above.
