What's New in Version   See changelog


New in this version:

  • Moved to my SteamVent library.  No more Interop context between 32 and 64 bit.  Scanning Steam for games should now run about 5000 times faster (I am not kidding).
  • Added logic to copy metadata from Steam as well as Clear Logos, "fanart", and SteamGrid images.
  • Removed BigBox specific logic, reducing feature set but extending lifetime of functionality for this plugin.
