CLZ Games Android: Unrecognized Barcode screen

This update introduces an easier way to deal with “Unrecognized Barcodes”.
A new screen that not only helps you to add the game to your app anyway, but also helps your fellow CLZ Games users by instantly adding the missing barcode to the CLZ Core online game database.

Easily add games that come up as “Unrecognized Barcode”:

  • In the Add Games screen when a barcode is not recognized, a new “Unrecognized Barcode” screen will appear.
  • In this screen:
    1. Just find your game by title (Search-As-You-Type is also active here!)
    2. Then click Add Game.
  • This will:
    1. Add the game to YOUR database with full game details and your barcode.
    2. Instantly add the barcode to OUR Core online game database, connected to the game you selected.
