Yup, the new stable version was released a few hours ago, actually. It should work properly with B.P.R.D. Vampire.

If you ever run into other comics that can't be scraped, one thing you can do is try to search for the actual ComicVine URL for that series (like what you pasted in your comment.) It's a bit of a pain, but it will get the job done while I figure out why things aren't working the way they should.

My work around has always been to paste the last digits (in this case 59360) into the tag or notes field within a string that matches a correctly scraped comic - ie tag CVDB59360 and then rescrape to get the details into the database.

Thanks! I was facing this problem while getting information about the series Batman: Year One!
But a problem still remains with VineScraper: instead of fills the "volume" place with the right volume number, it fills with "1940"! And it fills "number" with the "volume" number! :blink: what's happening?

I'm really new on ComicRack, only a couple of weeks!

What is your file name? It primarily depends on that.

Files named like: Batman - Year One #01.cbz or Batman - Year One.cbz are "correct".
instead of fills the "volume" place with the right volume number, it fills with "1940"

In Comic Vine, the volume is *always* a year. It is the year of the first issue of that volume.

Example:

Thor (volume 1966) vs Thor (volume 1998)
Last Edit: 4 years 3 months ago by cbanack.
