I downloaded this but it doesn't seem to pull the data in for the other columns. Since it's been 2 years since this was made, I suppose things have changed to where it wouldn't work anymore.
Does anyone know if there is something similar to this? I'd like to have all my games listed on an excel spreadsheet so I can view it on the go on my phone without a data connection. Thanks!
It works still! At least on a trial run. I'm on Win 7 32 bit. What I did was:
Edit: I tried it with all my game titles which match the GB dB exactly, it did nothing for the 26 hours it was running. Tried it with 50, hung an hour before I stopped it. Twenty games - look, bottom line, this tool is broken, and we'll have to continue querying the Giant Bomb database in the same inefficient manner for years to come because they won't give us a bleeping "games" table with "concepts",
"Genre" and all the other fields it would be nice to have. So keep hammering away at the dB, I guess, until the year comes that they don't have all the info scattered to the four winds of the bleeping universe......
someone actually tried to use this?
it's 3 years old, i didn't even know the api was still a thing. i actually just tried to use it with 7 games and it seems to work with such a small amount. although even that took a few minutes. the tools isn't efficient in any way (no multithreading), but was far as i remeber, it worked (slowly) a few years back.
they might do api throttling now or something.
been looking for the source code for half an hour now. looks like it's gone.
Use your keyboard!
