v4.6.1: New Loose/CIB/New field plus enhanced cloud syncing

August 8th, 2017

For CLZ Games on Android we have added several game-specific fields and made more fields available to edit in the edit game screen: This update is 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 toggle 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.
  • Group on the “Completeness” field by tapping the menu top right, then tap “Folders > Completeness”.
