10.11-beta-1 Released

Recommended Posts

Just tested again and the same. As you can see here no wii platform in Launchbox.

Log for that session.

Debug 2020-02-25 07-12-40 PM.log

 

Edit:

 

I should add all the images are there still also even after running the tool with images selected previously, it just takes to long to test that every time as its like a 20 minute process to scan everything.

@neil9000 That's a known issue. If you delete an entire platform, then the metadata is gone for that platform, as are the folder paths for that platform. So at that point, we don't know the folders to look for to check for unused media. We could guess and look in the default folders, but I'm afraid that could be cause for problems.

I think a better approach would be to prompt to delete media folders when you delete a platform. That's on the list.

Yeah thanks Jason. Been chatting in the discord about it, its a misunderstanding on my part on how the Cleanup tool was designed. I totally get the wariness for just deleting folders like that, but now that you offer up the files detected as well as the checkboxes for them, maybe a "hey we detected some media folders for platforms not in your Launchbox library, would you like to also delete these?" Or similar may work there?

Will there be an option to download steam tags into a new field (with mulitple choice "tick")? That would be really awesome.

BTW, LB still is not downloading steam trailers.

Thanks Jason, clean up tool now showing all rows with Beta 5 here.  I also get the weird blue in the corners of the scroll bar on both outdated (light windows theme) and updated (dark theme) pcs.

The numbering for Touhou is still the same after updating to beta 5. Wasn't sure if the latest update regarding numbering was referring to the decimals.

Can you give me the exact Title (and Sort Titles) you are using for the games you are seeing this for?

For example: Touhou 12.3: Hisoutensoku, Touhou 12.5: Double Dealing Character, Touhou 12.8: Fairy Wars, Touhou 12: Undefined Fantastic Object. That's the order they are showing. Not sure what the sort titles would be.

Right click a game, hit edit. Go to the "Other" tab at the bottom of that screen,  there is a "Sort Title" field. If you didn't add one it will be blank.

@Jason Carr

is it possible to set the flags per game in the right sided detail window. at least those flags that also got badges? every time going into the game detail screen, setting the flag and press ok and wait for several seconds is bothering me.

another question is, can we get something like "no calculation" as an option compared to excel automation? so if I change something in the game detail screen and press ok, that launchbox will not update the current view until "press f5"? this makes handling way faster. I also don't know why everything needs to refresh after pressing ok in game screen details. I did not change name of the game, any sorting related things nor media files but screen needs a refresh. and every time it takes seconds.

Not a bad idea. We'll probably have to come back to that at a later time though.

We are currently optionally importing some Steam tags into the relevant fields (like genre for example). For this go-around though, we do not plan on adding a whole new tag system just for Steam. Per Steam trailers, every time I test it I never have any problems with it. I'll have @C-Beats review it again, but it's been working great for us in all of our testing. I know that issue goes way back, but unfortunately I'm guessing Steam is to blame for any problems at this point.

What do you mean by "flags per game"? I don't think we're likely to add a "no update" option because of the confusion that it's likely to cause. The logic for figuring out whether the screen needs to refresh on a minor update would be immensely complicated, considering all the fields that could change and the many different filter and arrange by options. Unfortunately we're gonna have to live with that for now.

All are blank, didn't add one to any of the titles.

I was able to replicate the issue you were having and you should see it corrected in the next beta update. Please let me know if after the next update you still see this issue.

the flags like game completed, hide game, portable etc. everything we can use a badge now.

and the rest: can understand that but media organisation Is currently not the prime feature of Launchbox :(

Steam's Genre tags are pulled in if the game is not in the LaunchBox GamesDB or if you prioritize Steam metadata.

I ticked to "prioritize Steam metadata" but no tags were downloaded into genre field. That would really be enough for me if ticking it would do the job. And genre field is also enough.

Really, I used a plugin, and then manually imported tags into genre field. That's a lot of work to do every time you import Steam games. It's a feature from heaven, literally.

The thing is the plugin overwrites everything, all the tags, and imports tags into custom fields that cannot be used by auto-populate feature properly  because custom fields can only hold a single value. It's a huge minus.

Steam tags are the most valualbe metadata we can imagine. Even Steam and GOG 2.0 included those features to eaisly sort and organize games by those tags. So it must be important and fundamental feature.

I can live without it, but I definately prefer to use it in Launchbox than on Steam or GOG. Really. That's the advantage of Launchbox - to have everything in one place!

I imported a bunch of new games (I do so every few weeks or so). So there were many games, like 35 new games. For instance:

Can you do the following for me @Pixel:

Select Blasphemous
Go to Tools > Download Metadata and Media
Hit Next, Check "Prioritize Steam Metadata"
Uncheck all image types
On the last page when asked whether you want to overwrite press the top option (overwrite all)
Hit finish and let the process run

Now Navigate to Blasphemous in your collection and press edit (or CTRL-E)
In genre you should see "Action; Adventure; Indie" what do you see?
