I just imported the Hellboy Reading List comicrack.cyolito.com/forum/23-reading-l...897-hellboy-universe

I went to run the CVS on all the entries which are all fileless because I don't own any of these books yet. I know it can't do cover matching on fileless books because they don't have a cover, but why isn't the series matched automatically when I am presented with a list of only one option.

Example:

B.R.P.D.: Hell on Earth - Seattle

Just because ComicVine only returns a single result for a comic book name search doesn't mean that it is the correct result. It's quite possible that the single choice that is found might still be for the wrong series--without a cover image to "prove" that its the right choice, there's no (automatic) way to be sure.

Ok, that makes sense.

No. While it did not automatically recognise 'Uncanny Avengers 8AU', when it presented the choose series box, I just had to click ok (I didn't have to choose the 8AU issue).
I just gave this a try with a couple of AU comics, and it seemed to work alright for me. Could you tell me the filenames of one or two of the comics that didn't work? Maybe there's something there I can fix.

Sorry for the delay. I wanted to make a video for this.

The filename is:

Uncanny Avengers 008AU (2013) (digital) (Minutemen-PhD)

Here is the video that shows the autoscrape failing on this even when if have the correct settings:

Thanks 600! That's definitely a bug, but I think I know what's going on. I'll sort it out for version 1.0.67.

I know there is not much you can do about this, but just as a piece of info. I have found that identical covers fail if one has the barcode removed (digital editions) compared to the other. This is logical... just so you would know.

Cheers!

Yeah, it's a delicate balance between being too sensitive (and getting caught up by barcodes, etc) and being not sensitive enough (and accidentally thinking two similar covers are actually the same.)

Still, I might tweak the sensitivity just a little bit down for the next release.

For some reason it's not working for me. No matter how I adjust the settings I'm having to confirm every new series. It's working just like the last version of the scraper, only now slower due to the image scanning. When the confirmation windows pops up, unless it's a really mangled filename, it's got the right volume and issue selected, but it's still making me confirm.

Ok, do this:

1) Find a couple of comics where the problem you are describing is happening.
2) Scrape them, so that you see the problem happen.
3) Press Control-Shift-L to save out a log file.
4) Post me a copy of the log file, and I should be able to use it to explain what's going on.
