Is this compatible with this version of the database?

I tried to do drop-in replacement and got this error

throw new Error('Unable to find database info');
Error: Unable to find database info

Do you know how much effort this is? Maybe I can patch it.

The GeoLite2 databases are a completely separate data format. The node-maxmind-db module should work with them.

Will add it to my TODO list, planning to add ipv6 first :+1:
