Try to create a new  platform without special characters, add a new game there and scrape.

Then check the platform images.

 

I will add you on steam so we can go through this.

I just found a minor issue with the descriptions. Your plugin apparently adds some characters as HTML code into the notes field.

Yeah, its a known issue because the steam store is actually a Webpage wrapped in steam client, so Html tags works, I have to gather all the occurrences of html tags and replace it, actually I replace everything under <> , but these tags are not enclosed with anything.

I'll try to fix those two, if you found more please post it here and I will fix it.

I will try to add some kind of properties as well to: (first need to learn how to do it lol!)

  • enable/disable of Custom fields Tags
  • switch between each tag with its own Key/value and One Key with multiple values separated with ; (Pending to see how Launchbox will behave)

Ok I just implemented the Properties file to use or not CustomFields, but as stated here (https://bitbucket.org/jasondavidcarr/launchbox/issues/249/custom-fields-do-not-support-multiple)  Custom fields doens't support semi-colon yet, so I guess there's no point to implement the switch yet because we won't be able to organize anything.

I will release the multiple Keys with the same value switch for now, maybe we can ask to @Jason Carr to implement Issue#249 

Regarding the HTML tags I'm still working on it, I will try to release before I go to vacation :P

Just wanted to give you a heads-up that I imported 126 new games that all updated in a matter of seconds. No problems.

Can't seem to get this to work. When I right click a game inside Launchbox, you see it as an option all the way at the bottom, but when I click on it nothing happens.

This doesn't seem to be working anymore.  It worked on June 9.  But now, it doesn't add the tags I know are missing from steam games.  And when I try to use the steam url to scrape games I got from other systems, I click yes to overwrite what is already in launch box and get this error message:

Has there been a launchbox update that isn't compatible?

That’s weird. The plugin is still working completely fine for me in 9.9. All tags are getting added just fine, I just tested it with a couple of newly added games.

Because it was addressed earlier in this thread: When you use the scraper you won’t see the changes immediately, you have to select a different game first and/or reload the image cache for the particular games to see the new metadata and media.

 

On another note, it looks like that Steam itself will feature Box - Front covers, Banner/Marquees and Clear Logos for all games very soon. I’m really excited about that because it will fill a lot of artwork gaps and make our Steam collections finally Big Box ready. It’s definitely something to keep an eye on :)

https://steamcommunity.com/groups/steamworks#announcements/detail/1597002662762032240

 

And finally I have a request for you @srxz. Would it be possible to add a link to the corresponding SteamDB pages as additional app? I have a lot of Steam games that were removed from the Steam store and therefore your plugin can’t find anything for them. Having an easy way to go to SteamDB would help me a lot to fill them in manually. Also is SteamDB a great source for in-depth info’s for all Steam games and features links to the respective Steam store page, community hub or PCGamingWiki article. So it would be quite handy in a lot of cases.

The SteamDB URL’s are very straight forward:  https://steamdb.info/app/GAME_ID/

You mean just add the steamdb as a custom tag? If that's the request it's easy. 

I'm currently overseas once I get back I will update the plug-in.
