Same named TPB are a pain but generally they have different year/published date. You could add that as a modifier to weed out TPB. Or you could sort by published date since that would put the TPB at the end of the series or story line.

And that is exactly why I avoid TPBs in my digital collection XD

An easy solution would be a regex script for Data Manager. I think usually the TPBs are called "Series: Volume Title", so "Batman: Court of Owls".
Now Series should be set to Everything before :, so Batman in this case.
And Title to the stuff behind ": ", so Court of Owls in this case. Or add this last part of series to the Title, making it "Volume One: Court of Owls".

I guess this should be pretty simple, but I'm not able to do this after trying for one hour

Hi guys,

There's a minor new release of Comic Vine Scraper available in the usual place.

User 'CuddleBear92' extended the list of publishers and imprints. That is the only change in this release.

More details can be found on github, here.

Cheers.

My old Frankenbox finally gave up the ghost, and with it I lost all the scrape data for my collection. Pain in the ass, but at least my comics were safe on an external drive. However, all my Comic Rack/Vine scraped data was on the internal drive. So I installed Comic Rack on my new machine, and was ready to do the long slog of scraping my collection. However, when I started to scrape, Comic Vine just crashes. I've attached the crash log, and am just wondering what is going wrong.

Thanks for any help you can give.
Cheers!

Not sure if anyone posts or reads anything here anymore, but not able to connect with ComicVine. Just wondering if it was the script, or service... anyone else with problems?

Yeah, There's an issue. Someone already addressed it in the github. I guess we can only wait for a patch.

Hi guys,

A new version of Comic Vine Scraper is available at the usual place.

This new version has been patched to use the newly required security protocol that Comic Vine added to their servers yesterday. All older versions of the scraper will no longer work, so you will need to update to this new version.

Thanks to user namanix for spotting the problem and finding a fix. More details here.

Cheers!

P.S. I do not check this thread very frequently, though I still post info about new releases here. If there's a critical problem with the scraper, the best way make sure that I see it is to open an issue on github (i.e. at the link above).

Ignore this post. It was a work flow error not a problem with the scraper

Hey guys... I'm noticing that, recently, I will sometimes scrape a book and instead of showing the book I'm looking for, it shows the first issue in the series or some other book, as if that book was not found... however, when I go into "show issues" that issue is, in fact, there, I just have to manually select it. This has only been happening recently and it seems to only happen for books that would have been recently added to comic vine.

Anyone else noticing anything like this?
