Wasn't sure if I should put this in general or scripts, feel free to move it to scripts if my choice was wrong. :)


This is my publisher and imprint remaps for anyone looking to (lazily) replace sloppy, ugly or incorrect ComicVine publisher and imprint entries.

Just copy and paste any you want to use to the advances settings dialog in the CV Scraper.

Feel free to add your own remaps.

BTW, double remaps work if done properly. You can remap a pubs name and then set that pub to an imprint of something else.

Other than the ignore option I suppose this could now be made into a data manager template?

Just a heads up - as of 1.0.60 Double remaps no longer seem to work
or maybe i'm doing something wrong
PUBLISHER_ALIAS=Dynamite Entertainment => Dynamite
IMPRINT=Dynamite => Dynamite Entertainment

which worked for me in 1.0.59 does not work in 1.0.60

I haven't made any changes in that part of the code between 1.0.59 and 1.0.60. Could you try installing 1.0.59 (from here) and confirming that there has been a change in behaviour?

EDIT: actually, what on earth are you trying to do there?

what it essentialy is supposed to do is tell the scraper to rename publisher Dynamite Entertainment to Dynamite and then use that as an imprint of Dynamite Entertainment


Dynamite Entertainment
Publisher: Dynamite Entertainment
Imprint: Dynamite


but maybe it was 1.0.58 that it was working in.... i've been updated this script 3 times this week!

EDIT: I know i had remaps working this way in one of the 4 scripts i've used in the (Maybe i'm doing it different this time (last time i had it working and updated the script i forgot to save my DAT files was doing the same thing with DC and Marvel - though Marvel was a tad different it ony Went "IMPRINT=Marvel => Marvel Comics" )

This simply looks like a job for data Manager! though i'd rather not have to run multiple scripts.. just wish i could remember how i pulled it off last time.

Yeah, it would be simpler to have Data Manager just find every comic with 'Dynamite Entertainment' as the Publisher, and then set 'Dynamite' as the imprint.

can't do that... Dynamite has other imprints as per your scraper (Chaos Comics) plus i can't seem to find any documentation on data manager the link in the script wants me to log into google... and i refuse to log into google for any reason other than mail (on a pop server)


EDIT: found the manual....
