Ooh that's a good shout, I do have QSync (a sync tool for my NAS) which runs across the folders... 

Also a few symlinked folders too in a few places...

Thats just the welcome screen that shows when the program is updated, its hitting the internet to show some info, so i would suggest its a firewall issue on your end. You can just check the box bottom left of the window and click close, it wont show again until the next update.

So, I'm trying the new edit screen to add some screenshots and have a few problems (I tried to record it - but when I looked back at the recording - the edit screen doesn't appear just the mouse and LB - very weird)

1 - I had already placed images in the screenshots folder - now I just wanted to associate them with the right games - the file names didn't match.

2 - It started ok - but once I hit okay - it froze for a long time (I have a large collection - up to 50k games and many playlists). Took over a minute to get any responsiveness from LB.

3 - Then I got an error about not being able to download the files.

4 - I tried again - but now the files were missing from the folder. Somehow LB erased them.

5 - Then I tried dragging them over from the original folder location (they were no longer in my screenshots folder in LB). Dragging is not possible or at least not yet?

Any ideas?

In the meantime - how do I revert back to the last version?

BUT STILL CAN'T DRAG IN FILES . Please bring that back.

TBH -  I'm not sure this UI  for the edit screen is really an improvement.  I liked having almost everything in one screen. This seems to take longer to get things done. Why not just make it bigger and include more? It's not like we can access anything in LB while the screen is open anyway. Why have a small screen and multiple clicks to get things done?

@Jason Carr @Wanderer189 tried the image clean up with debug logs on this time, see a bunch of these in the logs:
 

2020-06-24 02:43:01 PM FIRST CHANCE EXCEPTION: Path cannot be the empty string or all whitespace.
   at System.IO.Directory.CreateDirectory(String path)

and then these

Hope that helps, I'm guessing for whatever reason its not liking my image paths?

It is much more work and time to add games manually that's for sure, I agree with Mr.Laor so far. I just added a couple Windows games and it didn't find default videos I had previously placed in appropriate folder. The .webm extension wasn't in the default extensions, had to change drop-down to "all files" to find them. (I get a lot of videos from Steam). I'm sure that is an easy fix though. Also noticed when you add a game manually, LB doesn't refresh to where the newly added game is, you have to scroll down to find it

Jason does advise part of the reason why they made the changes in the UI for the game edit screen. So this look is likely something that we will need to get used to if it is allowing Jason to further improve and refine the edit screen.

  • Improvement: The game add/edit dialog has been completely overhauled to allow for future flexibility and fixes a number of usability issues with the previous version (such as the multi-select dropdowns)

Just an opinion but - the changes can still be instituted - just making the main screen larger with more available w/out having to switch screens  - agree with @Wanderer189 - it makes manually editing even more time-consuming.

Just a quick note on this, the changes were made because we were landlocked, and couldn't really add anything new. We can't just keep making that screen bigger and bigger because then the full window wouldn't be visible on 720p displays (which are common on things like handheld devices, and when using high DPIs on TVs), so that really isn't an option. It really isn't much different this way, because all we did was move the tabs to new pages (and separated out the images). Unfortunately those changes are required and are not up for discussion.

With OBS and multiple videos now, it would be good to have some option to delete chosen video(s) in LB. Searching them manually in the explorer can be quite tedious, especially if you have thousands of them.

You can delete them on the edit screen.

Just one note concerning the new edit interface that I am just exploring. All tabs have a delete button at the bottom (videos, additional apps etc.) except for images tab. I don't know if it is intentional? I know you can still right click to remove the image.

Yes, we're working on that. :)

is there a chance to get two or three different types of Game Detail Edit Screens? depending on the DPI and resolution settings to make advance of higher resolution on a working screen? I am usually setting things up on a 4K screen with 100% DPI - and I like having most of the things on one screen at once. it is just an idea.
