v17.2.1: A completely new Add Games screen!

June 14th, 2017

Big changes today! The Add Games Automatically screen has been completely re-designed, to make it both easier-to-use and easier-on-the-eye (and it’s now called “Add Games from CLZ Core”):

  • A simple two-panel design: Search Results on the left, Preview on the right.
  • The Search Results now show cover images for every game.
  • Automatic Preview of selected result (no more double clicking).

See it in action:

Here’s the full list of improvements:

Add by Title improvements

  • Automatic Preview of selected result (no more double clicking).
  • Can’t find your game? Choose “Add this game anyway” at the bottom.

Add by Barcode improvements

  • Barcode Queue and Search Results are now integrated into one list.
  • Scan or type a barcode and press “Search CLZ Core” to add it to your queue and instantly search it.
  • Barcodes added to the queue instantly show title, platform, barcode and a cover image.
  • Use “Add [x] games” on the bottom left to add all games.
  • Use “Add [game title]” on the bottom right to add the selected game only.
  • To remove a barcode from the queue either
    • Right click the queue to delete selected entries.
    • Hover your mouse over the cover image and click the small “remove” icon.
    • Press “delete” on your keyboard.

Other changes

  • Add button now pops up a small “Add to Collection” vs “Add to Wish List” menu.

    TIP: you can disable this using the “Adding to Collection/Wish List” option in “Tools > Options > Add/Update Games from CLZ Core”.

  • Keyboard shortcuts:
    • ALT+A to add current selected result
    • ALT+C to add checked results (only in “by Barcode” tab)
  • Use the “hamburger menu” top right to:
    • Connect to CLZ Barry
    • Open the Webcam scanner
    • Find OPN-2001 or Flic scanner
    • Configure CLZ Core settings
