Hi, guys. I have a problem that come this days and never happen before. In general I have scrap bunch of comics (lets say +100) and the comicvine scrap, after I identify the first one, him take all the others automatically. Normal.

But now I have a new folder of comics (more than 6000) that want to scrap and for the comic of the same name and collections must scrap one by one...like you can guess this is very tedious and want to save time. Comics are all in *.cbz format and the structure name is Title V1 #71.cbz .
Please if anyone know what I can do should be great.
The weird thing is that for others comics works like normal, but with this folder of thousands and thousands is a pain in the eye.
Thanks for the help in advance and the time to read this post!

Is it failing on the image matching? If you already have the Series Name, proper volume YEAR, and issue number; then it should have no problems scraping them.

Hi, Fuzzyluzzi. Thanks for answer.

Problem is, image cover in general match well (90% of the cases) but don't know why continue to ask me confirm for each individual issue.

In relation with the year, comics have the structure name "Title V1 #2.cbz" which means that is no year there, except for the volume number in the old fashion way-no per year but just for volume number-.

But the name of the file don't should be a problem, since I have scrap packs of comics with the same structure in the name and was work well. Also I have tried to change the name of the files to this structure "Title V1 #14 (1983).cbz when I have add the volume year. Bust still don't work. I think that the problem is in the files, not in the plug in. But I cannot figure out what is this, after hours and hours of breaking my head trying to find the problem.


Any help is welcome and really thanks.

outside of that, the only thing I can think of is that the option to automatically approve it has been disabled.

Make sure that "try to choose the correct series automatically" is turned on, and "confirm each issue before proceeding" is turned off.

Yes, I have try that option. The problem with that is that dont let me choose what volume/year is the right for that specific bunch of comic that try to scrap, some time take errors when one title has too many volumes (like some marvel titles) .

Is weird since with others comics, when I have unchecked that option, I select- lets say- 30 comics of the same title. I need to match manually the first one in order to select the right year/volume and the others 29 are selected automatically. That for me is the best way, but I am not able to do this with this specific folder and don't know why.

But at this point I can make it automatically like you suggest and check after if is some error with the files.

Anyway, great thanks to you two, cbanack and Fuzzyluzzi, for take the time to answer me!

You need to move all of the comics from each volume into a separate folder.

So change this:

Batman V1 #1.cbz
Batman V1 #2.cbz
Batman V1 #3.cbz
Batman V2 #1.cbz
Batman V2 #2.cbz
Batman V2 #3.cbz

To something like this:

Batman Volume 1\
         Batman V1 #1.cbz
         Batman V1 #2.cbz
         Batman V1 #3.cbz
Batman Volume 2\
         Batman V2 #1.cbz
         Batman V2 #2.cbz
         Batman V2 #3.cbz


The scraper ignores the "V1" and "V2" parts of the filename, so all it sees is:

Batman #1.cbz
Batman #2.cbz
Batman #3.cbz
Batman #1.cbz
Batman #2.cbz
Batman #3.cbz

But when you put the files into separare folders, then it knows that they can be from different volumes.

Thank you so much, cbanack. Looks like a great idea. The actual strucutre of my folders are 1982 00-12/1982-02/Micronauts V1 #38.cbz but I did not know that the scraper can read the name of the folder. Good to know. :)
Thanks again!

Actually, it does not read the name of the folder at all. It simply assumes that any files that are in the same folder AND have the same title ("Micronauts") are from the same series, and any files that are in different folders are from different series.
