I just looked at the publisher info on the bottom of page 1 for the first three issues and it is says "Cyber Force® Volume 4"

Yes, but we're gathering the most common filename issues now

Ok, I get it. The comic file comes without the space so the parser doesn't find it. I never noticed because I have a cvinfo file in that particular folder since I keep it on a shared network drive instead of my main library drive.

Hi guys, I'm thinking about changing a couple of the options in the Comic Vine Scraper "Settings" window. I made a separate discussion thread to talk about these changes. The thread is here, if anyone wants to join in.

I found again a filename issue: "B.P.R.D. - Vampire" is the filename, and I only get the correct result if I search for "Vampire". If I search for "B.P.R.D." there are a lot of results but no Vampire.

It is probably the periods. They are picky when it comes to periods. I would guess the Vampire listing is probably missing the periods. I know the GI Joe have the same issue. If you don't remove the periods it never finds the majority of the listings.

Maybe periods should be ignored?

Yeah, I was thinking something along those lines. In the old API, periods didn't matter, but perhaps now I have to make the scraper strip them out.

There are some problems with the ComicVine API right now, which means the scraper currently isn't working. The problem should be sorted out in the next 12 hours. See here for more:
