@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 1.9 See changelog
- Added a properties.json, it is marked as true to download custom tags, if you do not wish to download it make it "false". Some people would prefer not to download custom tags as steam has a LOT of tags and it will make game information disappear from screen. (I have no idea if we can hide the custom tags from game information, if not would be great to do it @Jason Carr)
- Fixed file naming of videos, now it downloads webm file extension.
