@fawkesyeah for the extensive testing
@CriticalCid for Ideas.
If you have trouble running the plugin and crashing due CAS error, please right click on the DLL's , properties and then unblock.
Just paste the Steam URL from the game that you need to scrape information.
If you want to add Additional Custom fields and Tags please edit the properties.json :
Note: This will generate a LOT of tags, I advise to hide it if you are going to use it. (Legacy Settings -> Game Details -> Disable Custom Fields)
Also if you have the SteamDB or SteamSpy Link only you can use it to get the Steam metadata as well, the regex works just remind to put the / on the final url just like this:
BUT THIS WONT GET INFO FROM THE RESPECTIVELY WEBSITES, IT WILL GO TO STEAM ANYWAYS.
What's New in Version 1.5 See changelog
Now supports Launchbox Steam Importer!
- If you have imported your game through LB or you launch your game using "steam://rungameid/<idofyourgame>" it will scrape automatically no need to enter the url of steam store!
- Supports multiple games if they are configured to launch from the steam url "steam://rungameid/<idofyourgame>"
Thanks for @Scriven who gave me this idea.
