Fixed:

    • clicking the “show all results for…” label after pasting a search string with the mouse didn’t always perform the search
  • Quick Search: “matches:” followed by nothing would result in a “regular expression required” error
  • Scaled images for thumbnails, CLZ Comics export, etc. are now saved without metadata for smaller file sizes and better performance
  • Main Screen:
    • Images Popup didn’t show box set covers
    • Nothing would show when switching to Cards view after applying the quick filters
    • Select random didn’t always work properly in a filtered list

v17.1 Loose/CIB/New field plus enhanced cloud syncing

April 10th, 2017

For Game Collector, the v17.1 update has turned out to be a bigger update then the v16 to v17 update 🙂
Because for v17.1 we have added several game-specific fields and features, especially targeted at the serious video game collector:

New “Completeness” field: Loose vs CIB vs New

This is for the real video game collectors, especially those that are into collecting retro games:

  • Added: a new “Completeness” field, to indicate how complete your copy of a game is. Choose from:
    • Loose, meaning “cartridge or disc only”.
    • CIB, meaning “Complete In Box”, everything included.
    • New, meaning CIB and also still sealed.
  • Two extra checkbox fields “Manual” and “Box”.

    To further specify the “Loose” status. You know, for those cartridges with just a manual, no box. Or in a box, but with the manual missing.
