LB scraper won't find alternate names


Recommended Posts

Hi, i had to rescrape my database, but ran into the problem that Launchbox seems not to lookup alternate names for my region

To give 2 examples (wich are by far not the only ones):

German: Frontschweine  

English: Hogs of War

English: Pokemon Blue Edition

German: Blaue Edition


Is this a bug or a missing feature?

Actually that feature was already added in the latest beta versions.

To activate beta updates just go to Tools -> General -> Updates and check the proper box for it. Now just restart LaunchBox to get the update.

If you have background updates activated you may have to wait a little because the update message only appears when the background download has finished.

Thanks for the answer. It seems to work in the beta when searching manually for a title. But when importing multiple games to the list only the english names are searched.

Also it's not possible to show the alternate names in the game list. I would like to display the German titles and not the English.
