Webcam barcode scanning

Use your webcam as a barcode scanner, to add or find games by barcode.

  • Scan barcodes with your webcam
    Just use the live camera view to point your webcam at a barcode
    and let our software detect the barcode that is in view.

  • Use the webcam scanner to add games by barcode
    Pop-up the scan window and scan game barcodes,
    either using Direct Search or scanning into the Queue.

  • Or use it in the main screen to find games by barcode
    Scan a game barcode while in the main screen,
    to quickly search your local database by barcode.

  • Works best with auto-focus or manual-focus webcams
    Fixed focus cameras will not work well (or at all).


Delete Orphaned Images

Clean up your hard-disk by deleting all unused cover images and thumbnails.

  • This tool scans your configured Images Folders to find all images
    that are not linked to your current database file.

  • Browse the list of found orphaned images in List or Images View.
    Check thoroughly to make sure these can all be deleted.

  • Finally, use the red “Delete Selected Images” button,
    and all “checked” images will be removed from your computer.

WARNING: Do NOT use this tool if you have multiple databases !!!!

Enhanced database Backup and Restore system

Keep multiple time-stamped backups and easily restore them.

  • The software now keeps multiple time-stamped database backups,
    saved to your Backups folder as “backup of [yourdatabasename] – [timestamp].gmc”.

  • Use the new “Number of Days” setting in Tools / Options / Backup to select
    how many days of backups you want to keep. Older files are automatically pruned.

  • Use the Tools / Maintenance / Restore Database submenu to easily restore a backup.
    Restored backups are copied back to your Data folder as “[yourdatabasename RESTORED.gmc”.

New QuickSilver template, new QuickSilver Shelves for Images View
