New: Updated Platform picker in Add screen

July 16th, 2024

We’ve updated the Platform picker in the Add screen to open up in its own popup screen. Your favourite platforms will be at the top, followed by our own sorting (based on console generation).

We also added a search to it (to quickly find the platform you wish to select) and you can now “favorite” your platforms so they will appear at the top of the list.

Open up your Add Games screen to check it out:

Improved search behaviour

May 24th, 2024

In today’s update, we improved the behaviour after searching using the search box top right.
Previously, when you selected a game from the “suggestions dropdown”, the software would take you to a separate full screen page showing the details of that game. This behaviour was a bit annoying as it would take you away from the main screen and you needed to click “Back” on the top left to get back to it. Also, the main screen would then show you the full collection again and would be scrolled back at the top again. Meh..

April 17th, 2024

A small update for your CLZ Games app today, in which we rectify a big mistake we make in version 9.0 (two mistakes in fact). Also, we improved the camera barcode scanner and introduced a new setting for customizing your app.

Summary of today’s changes:

  • Game values are back in the Add Games screen
  • Check Values screen now accessible for “grandfathered” users too
  • Faster camera barcode scanner for adding games by barcode
  • New setting in Settings screen “Show Completed”

A big update for your Game Connect web-based software today, which is all about pick list fields.

Pick list fields (and the pick lists behind them) are an important part of your game database. These are the fields in the Edit screen that let you pick from a list of possible values, with that list being fully configurable by you the user.
Examples of pick list fields are Location, Owner, Genres and Tags (both multi value pick list fields), but also Platform, Developer and Publisher.

Now, a lot of the questions we usually get about Game Connect are related to pick list fields and can usually be answered with:

“Just use the Manage Pick Lists screen”

Renaming Locations, Merging duplicate Genres, fixing series sort problems, fixing typos in Platform names, etc… it is all done in the Manage Pick Lists (MPL) screen. An important and powerful screen, but… not so easy to find if you don’t know where to look or don’t even know what to look for.

With today’s Connect update, we are making this a lot easier: We have improved the Manage Pick Lists screen itself AND made it more accessible / discoverable:

In short:

  • Improved Manage Pick Lists (MPL) screen
  • Easy access to the MPL screen right from the folder panel
  • Refreshed Edit Comic screen, with better pick list fields and direct MPL access

April 2nd, 2024

This build fixes a couple of crashes that have been reported through our systems.



New:

  • Check Value screen will now highlight titles/barcodes to show if you already have them in your collection (blue = in collection)
  • Added 3 new platform icons: MSX, MSX 2 and Atomiswave

Fixed for iOS:

  • Search as you Type was not working in the “Check Value” screen (by Title)
  • A crash could occur on devices running iOS12
  • Update from Core now leaves the value alone (use Update Values to get new values)

Fixed for Android:

  • Sync with CLZ Cloud: A crash could occur during downsyncing
  • Updating Game Values: A crash would occur on loading the “Updated Values” report
  • Unrecognized Barcode: An error would show if no images were found for the barcode
