I added my entire collection sometime ago, but I've been having some trouble adding specific games to it. This isn't just the collection system either, but also the search bar. It only displays so many results with no option to see more, so if you add a game from a large series all the other games may take up the list without you finding the one you're looking for.

For example, this happened when I tried to add Resident Evil 0.


Hmm... Resident Evil 0 shows up in the quick search bar for me, but if you ever need more results go to Browse Games and use the Search Function at the bottom of the screen. This needs to be made more obvious, but it displays more results.

There is a ton of stuff we can do with the collections. We gotta get on that.





Yeah, in the meantime...just enter one to get into the contest. I know John was working on a way to import from other collections. xycury, is your collection on another website or in a spreedsheet?


Ditto on the request for an import feature. I have over 800 games and most are in IGN's list:

http://club.ign.com/...hieme&mode=vown

But I also have a local access database with them too since not all of the games I own are in IGNs database. Having the ability to import from a .csv file should work for me and I would expect most game databases would have the ability to export to a .csv.

Yeah, it's appearing in the search bar now too. Back when I first added it I don't believe it did, tho. Thanks for the tip.

Hmm I'm loving the game collection feature and the wish list and the pricing notification and just about everything. I was wondering if I'm just not seeing it or if there isn't an option at the moment to leave a quick blurb about a game.

Not quite a full review just sort of quick personal thoughts, possibly why someone gave the game a single star or why they threw down all five.

Like infinite space I want to give it a five star and its probably getting that but I sorta also want to leave a warning that its not exactly fast paced but the plot has managed to sucker punch me two or three times now, which is shamelessly awesome feat for any game to have accomplished. Or Mayhaps why I gave Skies of Arcadia a 5 for the DC but gave the GC version a paltry 4, well that and I'm just plain interested in what other CAG members though about (insert random game).

Is there a way to add pages when searching for games? I'm trying to add a few games (Donkey Kong, for example) and while it does show up, it's not showing the system I have it for. I'm trying to add Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong, Jr., both for the ColecoVision.

It's in the system. The problem is that there are so many versions of "Donkey Kong" you need to be a bit more specific.

Add the platform name ( example: "donkey kong coleco") of whatever game you are searching for and it will pop up to the top.

If this is as successful as I think it will be, hopefully we do it again to hit the million mark.

Is there a way to see the cag collection? There was mention of 400,000, but I'd kind of like to see how many of each game, it'd be pretty interesting.:)

When I go to Browse Games and use the Search Function at the bottom of the screen... the games come up with pages of choices- which is fantastic. HOWEVER, when adding games htis way, I cannot see what I have added already, AND it also takes off of the page to fill in more info. The quick search is vastly superior in this regard... I just wish it had the pages of choices too...

Regardless, this is a welcomed feature to CAG.

So what is the total up to now?

*edit*

Also there should be a way to move games directly from our wishlists to our collections.
