  1. Glad you like it! I just tested it and it is overwriting old values every time you run the search. This is what I did, I ran the search on a game, then manually edited the custom field value with other value, then ran the search again and the value was updated with the original. Please tell me if this is what you meant. One thing to notice is that if you manually change the name of the custom field, then it will create a new one if you run the search again, this is because the field is updated by name. Another thing is that you wont immediately see the update after running the search, you have to select another game and then back to actually see the update in the right panel. Hope this helps.

    About Plugin that scrapes information from HowLongToBeat.com and adds custom fields with game lengths information. I made this plugin to add length information for certain games, mostly rpgs. This adds 3 custom fields for Main Story, Main + Extra and Completionist length. You can configure which ones you want to add by editing the file HLTBPlugin.xml. Because there's no oficial API from HLTB, I had to parse the HTML, which means that as soon as they change something on the HTML this plugin probably will stop working... Install Extract files (dll + xml) to : Launchbox/Plugins/HLTBPlugin. Config (HLTBPlugin.xml) MainStoryLength: Enable/disable main story length update. Default: true. MainExtraLength: Enable/disable main story + extra length update. Default: true. CompletionistLength: Enable/disable completionist length update. Default: true. MainStoryFieldName: Change main story length custom field name. Default: Main Story Length MainExtraFieldName: Change main story + extra length custom field name. Default: Main + Extra Length CompletionistFieldName: Change completionist length custom field name. Default: Completionist Length Note: If you change the fields names it will not update the games that already have information, so you will end up with duplicated fields with different names and you will have to manually delete them (edit game -> custom fields tab). So config the first time and stick with that. Usage Access the option by right-click a game (only one game, no massive update yet). A window will popup with all the games found and you can choose which one correspond to your game. If there's no results you can manually change the search words (e.g. Metal Gear Ac!d will get no results but you can then change the search to Metal Gear Acid). You can use the "Arrange By" option to order the games by length. Lengths are shown with leading zeroes because is the only way to properly order the games since custom fields are strings and not integers. Tested on version 8.9. I think you need a premium license because custom fields are not supported in free license (not sure). I have no relation with HowLongToBeat.com, if you like their work please go and support them.
