September 8th, 2021

It’s been a while since the last CLZ Games update, as our entire mobile team has been working on a big update of our CLZ Music app (the one for CDs and vinyl records).

  • a new “Clear Cloud” button in the Sync screen, for resetting your CLZ Cloud

  • a new Links tab in the Edit Game screen, for adding web-links to your game entries

New:

  • Image View: Sadly not everyone likes the new flexible “full cover wall” layout. So we have now made it optional. Tap the button to the left of the size slider to switch between the new “Flex Layout” and old “Grid layout”.

Fixed:

  • iOS10: iPad: Images view would crash the app
  • iOS10: iPad: After tapping an album and tapping back, the list could disappear

Fixed:

  • Image View: Position of the size slider wasn’t always remembered correctly

v6.4 New look for game list, cover view & game details

July 2nd, 2021

Instead of adding more new features, we decided to take a few weeks to work on the look and feel of the app.
In this 6.4 update, we improved the look and layout of the game list and of the game details pages, in both the main screen and the Add screen preview.
On top of that, we finally acted upon a common request from our users: you can now change the size of the thumbnails in the Images View.

v6.3.2: A couple of fixes

February 24th, 2021

Fixed:

  • Opening Statistics could crash the app
  • Main Screen: Collection status filter: Could default to “For Sale” when it was previously set to “On Wish List”
  • Main screen: Some controls were missing from the top bar on iOS 9/10 devices
  • “Want” summary at the top disappeared from the list of comics

CLZ Games (Android)

v6.3: Various improvements

February 22nd, 2021

A big update for your CLZ app today. Instead of bringing one big new feature, we decided to work on multiple areas that could be improved, all of them based on the feedback we received from you all. Thanks for that!

Collection Status filter

The 2nd button from the top right (next to the search button) is the Collection Status filter. Previously, it allowed you to filter by All, Collection or Wish List, but with this update, we added all collection status option there as filters, including On order and For Sale.

Also, the button will now be highlighted in yellow when a filter is active, that is, when it is set to anything other than “All”.

Re-designed toolbars at the top

The toolbars at the top have been re-designed, mainly to make the interactive elements stand out more as actual “buttons”.

(Especially the folder icon on the left was something that was often overlooked as something you could tap on. Hopefully this re-design will help to let more users find the most powerful feature of the app 🙂 )

New sort and display options in Settings

  • Ignore Sort Titles when sorting by Title
  • Show Sort Titles instead of Titles

Improved Statistics screen

The Statistics screen has been updated with:

  • More database totals at the top (purchase price, current value)
  • More charts (by Year, by Genre, by Completeness, by Completed, Value by Completeness)
  • A new: “tap to show all” option to enlarge charts and see ALL entries

v6.2.1: New: Pre-fill fields while adding games

December 28th, 2020

A big update for your CLZ Games app!
This time we added a new feature that will save you lots of time:

New Pre-fill screen that pops up when adding games

When adding a game to your database using the Add Games screen, it will now pop-up a new screen called “Pre-fill game details, letting you set various fields right then and there.

Fields available in the Pre-fill screen:

  • Completeness (Loose / CIB / New)
  • Box / Manual
  • Location
  • Owner
  • Purchase Date
  • Purchase Store
  • Purchase Price
  • Quantity
  • Tags

No more need to edit your added games afterwards!

(BTW: of course, using the new Pre-fill screen is optional. If you don’t want to use it, just uncheck the “Show Pre-fill screen” toggle at thet bottom. You can always re-enable it through the app’s Settings screen.)

Also new:

  • All Collection Status options are now available under the Add button in the Add Screen.
  • New look and layout of Field Defaults screen.

Since we introduced the Update Values from PriceCharting feature, one of the most common questions we received at customer support has been:

After I update the values for my games, is there any way I can see which games have been updated?

So, after several years of having to say “sorry, no that is not possible”, we figured, let’s make it possible.

And of course, we went way beyond just showing which games have been updated. As of today, after you run Update Values, you will get a nice “Updated Values” report, showing you:

  • which games have been updated from PriceCharting
  • their previous values and the new values
  • the value change, in green when increased, in red when decreased
  • total value changes for the updated games and for your entire collection

Here it is, version 6.0 of the CLZ Games mobile app!

In this major update, we bring many improvements to the game value features, plus we finally bring you *the* most requested feature: being able to Edit Multiple Games in one go.
But there’s more, as we took this opportunity to completely re-design the Edit Game screen and to implement super useful Crop and Rotate tools for game cover images.

Important::
If you also use the Game Collector desktop software, please update your software and values in the following order to ensure correct syncing of the new Value field:

  1. First, update your Game Collector desktop software to version 21. Do NOT sync with CLZ Cloud yet.
  2. Then, update your CLZ Games mobile app to version 6.0.

    Only when both sides have been updated to the latest version:

  3. Use Tools / Update Values in Game Collector.
  4. Sync with CLZ Cloud in Game Collector.
  5. Sync with CLZ Cloud in CLZ Games.

Here’s the full list of what’s new in version 6.0:

Improved game value downloading from PriceCharting

The downloading of Loose, CIB and New values from PriceCharting is one of the most popular features of the CLZ Games app. So for this big 6.0 update, we decided to take this feature to the next level, with values for more games, new features and many improvements:

Values for over 25,000 extra games and editions

We started on this project 3 months ago, manually linking over 25 thousand extra Core game entries to the corresponding PriceCharting entries, including lots of new PAL and JP editions. A huge job, but now ALL games and editions that are listing on PriceCharting.com are linked to entries in our Core game database!

Game lists now always show Completeness and PriceCharting values

Also, a new design for the Completeness and Value displaying in the game details.

Now download values in other currencies

Use the Settings screen (choose Settings from the menu) to select your preferred currency for the game value and purchase price fields. Choose from USD, EUR, GBP, CAD, AUD, NZD, CHF, NOK, SEK or DKK.
Then run Update Values again to retrieve games values converted to your selected currency, using the current exchange rate.

Faster Update Values tool

The Update Values tool (in the menu) previously downloaded values one game at a time, but now it does so in batches of 100 games in one go, making it much, much faster.

Edit Game screen, new Value tab

All Value related fields (Completeness, Box, Manual, Value, PC ID, Condition, Purchase info, etc…) are now on their own “Value” tab in the Edit Game screen.

New on this Value tab:

  • A nice chart showing the PriceCharting values for Loose, CIB and New.

    Tip: tab the bars in the chart to set your Completeness field.

  • PriceCharting values are now downloaded into the Value field (previously called “Current Value”). This way, you can now manually override (and lock) the value and always keep your Value Totals correct (in the Statistics screen).
  • You can now manually override the PriceCharting ID. Useful for cases where our game entry is linked to the wrong PriceCharting entry and you did find the correct one on the PriceCharting.com site.
  • The Completeness field now has an extra N/A option for digital games. This way you can ensure your digital games are not downloading PriceCharting values.

Add Games screen

  • In the Add Games from Core screen, you can now set a global US/EU preference for getting US (=NTSC) vs EU (=PAL) values and cover images (this replace the old “US default” and “EU default” entries under a game.
  • Search results in the Add Games screen now show Edition, Region and PriceCharting values.

NEW: Edit Multiple Games in one go!

Finally make changes to multiple (or all) game entries in one go.
Here’s how:

  • Tap and hold on a game in the list to enter Select Mode
  • Now tap more game to select them.
  • Tap the menu button on the bottom right and choose “Edit [x] Games”.
  • In the screen that appears, select which fields you want to edit.

    (Tips: use the search box to find fields, tap the star icons to set Favorite fields)

  • Tap Edit at the top right.
  • Now set values, or leave fields gray to clear them.
  • Tap Done at the top right to save the changes to the selected games.

Warning: the Edit Multiple feature is a very useful and powerful feature, but… remember what Uncle Ben said: With great power comes great responsibility!

IMPROVED: Edit Game screen

A new look for all edit boxes and a more compact layout, making it much easier to edit your game entries, without scrolling through long lists of fields.

  • The cover image is now on its own tab, so the main tab starts with the most important edit fields at the top.
  • All value related fields are now on a separate Value tab (see above)
  • Fields are now laid out side-by-side, making it easier to edit all fields without endless scrolling.
  • More compact look and user interface for all text edit fields.
  • More compact display and editing of multi-value pick list fields like Developers, Publishers, Genres and Tags.
  • Date fields: enter year, month day manually or use calendar icon to use date setter popup.

NEW: Built-in Crop and Rotate tool for cover images

In the Edit Game screen the Cover is now on its own tab, with new Crop and Rotate tools for instant rotating and cropping of self-made cover photos or downloaded images.

IMPROVED: Folder Field selection screen

Yep, another update of this screen, to make it fully consistent with the Select Edit Fields screen.
It now includes a search box at the top for quickly finding the field you want, plus the ability to create your own Favorites (just tap the star icons).
