Integrated Game Details, improved Cover and Card Views

July 16th, 2018

Two updates for the Game Connect software and the CLZ Cloud viewer today. One a big step forward in usability, the other a nice cosmetic improvement:

Game Details now integrated in main screen

Up till now, when you clicked a game entry to see its’ full details, you were taken to the game details page, that is, a new page in your browser. One had to click “Back” to get back to the game list again. Often resulting in an annoying back and forth clicking, each time causing you to lose your position in the list.

But not anymore! Starting with today’s update, the game details are now integrated in a panel within the main collection view:

No more back and forth clicking. Just click a game entry to see its’ details, click another one to see that game’s details. Nice and easy, never lose your spot again.

Choose from two Layouts:

  • Horizontal Split: folders on the left, list on the top right, details on bottom right
  • Vertical Split: 3 panels side by side, folder, list and details

In either layout, the 3 panels are fully resizable by dragging the black “splitter bars” between the panels, so that you can customize the layout to your own liking.

The game details panel comes with its’ own “action bar”, with the main actions you may want to take on the selected game (Edit, Share, Delete, Duplicate, Loan and Link with Core).

Improved Cover View and Card View

At the same time, we made some small tweaks to both the Card View and Cover View, so that they’re making better use of your specific screen width. Both now use a “fully justified” layout, with the Cards auto-resizing to fit your screen width and the Covers distributing over the width, both resulting in a cleaner, less “jagged” view.
