I had this issue before, but you fixed it in a previous version and now it seems to be back. In my list of movies I have Alien³ and in the html output file it shows up as Alien³ (1992) (these names have been pasted right from the html file and MC)

Other then that stellar updates to this great app, can't wait for the TV support.

Thanks for all your hard work.

Cheers

This issue still exists in the 3.079 version and the WALL-E title also seems to be effected as well this is the output in the HTML Movie List: WALL·E (2008)

It would be nice to have it fixed.

I've just tested both of those titles and they work fine,

All I can suggest is that you are using old versions of the IMDB Scraper library.

You need to delete all the .dll files that come with MC and use the ones in the archive.

Hi Billy,

Thanks for your response, I have always copied all new versions of MC into thier own folders and just copied the settings file over when updating so I know I am running the latest version of all the dll's. Also I have tested this issue all the way back to the first gen2 beta and it still exists even that far back, so I guess I just hadn't noticed. I have even recently added another movie that is causing these problems Léon (1994) shows up as Lé️on (1994) in my HTML output file.

So it seems that some movies with special characters are causing problems but ONLY when outputting as HTML, they all appear fine in the MC application movie list. I wonder if it is some kind of encoding issue with the HTML files not displaying the Unicode characters or something, I'm a bit stumped and hope you can help fix it.

Léon (1994) shows up as Lé️on (1994) and has the french accent
Alien³ (1992) shows up as Alien³ (1992) and has the superscript
WALL·E (2008) shows up as WALL·E (2008) and has the dot

Also now in 3.079 a new problem has shown up in my HTML files, to further test my version I deleted everything and downloaded and extracted a fresh copy of 3.079 and did not copy over my settings file. I have 2 drives which hold my movies, so I readded them 1 at a time and generated an HTML file to see if it would fix my previous issue. Well it recreates the DB instantly as I re-added each drive individually, which was listed as a new feature in the new version, only now when I add the other drive and generate an HTML output file, it seems to alphabetize my list twice, once for each drive holding the movies. Here is another quick sample of the middle of my HTML output file:

Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008)
WALL·E (2008)
Wanted (2008)
Wedding Crashers (2005)
Yes Man (2008)
Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008)
12 Rounds (2009)

17 Again (2009)
2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
A Bug's Life (1998)
A History of Violence (2005)
Alien: Resurrection (1997)
Alien (1979)
Alien³ (1992)
Aliens (1986)

You can see where I bolded the list it goes from Z back to #, this is exactly where the list of movies on 1 drive ends and begins on the other. But as with everything else, if I look in the MC application, the list is fine and is sorted properly with all the proper names. The issues I am having only pertain to the HTML output file and how it looks, not how the application scrapes or display the names in it's own movie list. For this issue I reloaded version 3.039 and generated an HTML output file and it sorted the list properly with both drives, but of course the special characters issue was still present. I went back to 3.079 (again in its own folder with its own freshly created config file) and it reproduced this split drive issue which I can only assume must be related to the new rebuilding DB when adding new drive feature you just added.

I hope I don't sound like a pain, but I am not making this stuff up and can reproduce it constantly. I would be willing to upload any files or logs or whatever could help you to fix these issues cause my HTML output files and getting worse and worse it seems as time goes on and I like to send these list to people to pick movies to watch when they visit. Please let me know if there is any additional info/screenshots I could provide to help and again thanks for your time.

Cheers,

Stryk3r

stryk3r, Yes I'm getting the same here with the Wall-e issue. [V3.079]

The other thing though is the HTML output is not sorted alphabetically at all on mine & from memory I don't think it was ever implemented.

I suspect its in database order or something like that so as the movies are added thats the order they will appear in. This is why you have two distinct sections in your HTML.

Anyway Billy can confirm or deny Smile

I'll look into the HTML output, should be easy enough to fix.

To be honest I thought you were talking about the main program.

And yes the movies are listed according to the order they are parsed, I can also change this.

Fixed in new version 3.087

Just needed a declaration inserting into the html header.

I've also added full alpabetical sorting.
