  • Main Screen / Two Panel Mode: selection status text would sometimes show an invalid text when no games were showing in the list.

June 23rd, 2016


NEW: Choose between Light, Dark or System skins

Yes, We’re getting rid of the gray!

Game Collector now comes with a skin system, which affects the look of all screens in the program,
main screen, edit screens, add auto-screen, sync screen etc.. even the settings screens.

We have designed two different skins for you to choose from: Light and Dark.
The third option “System” is basically the old pre-v16.3 look.

  • Light: A clean look, white backgrounds, dark fonts. Very readable, easy on the eye.
  • Dark: A cool looking, modern design, with dark backgrounds, light fonts.
  • System: Keep things as it was, with the program following your Windows theme.

Please note:
The program now defaults to the Dark Skin. You can change to a different Skin using the Skin option in the View menu.

v16.3.1: Movies vs TV Series, Quick Filters and Dark vs Light Skins

June 8th, 2016


NEW: Movies vs TV Series

While talking to our loyal users, we often hear that, on their shelves, they are separating their movies and TV series. Hey, I do the same myself ๐Ÿ™‚

However, in Movie Collector, the two are always all mixed together in the same list. So we figured, why not allow users to separate their TV Series in Movie Collector too?

So here’s what we created for v16.3:

  • Use the new “Is TV Series?” field in the Edit Movie screen to make a distinction between your TV Series and other entries.
  • Then use folders (or the new Quick Filter panel!) to show TV Series only, other entries only (or all together).


Please note:

  • The “Is TV Series” field will be automatically set for new entries that you add from Core using the Add Movies Automatically screen.
  • For existing entries in your database, the “Is TV Series” field will be automatically set based on the presence of either an episode list or a thetvdb.com link. You may want to check your entries though, to see if the automatic system missed some TV Series.
