    Is this the right thread to mention some sequels missing in rename XML? Don't want to clutter, but Spy Kids seem to be missing...

    Re: IMDb+ Scraper (Fix English, Rename+Group, RottenTomatoes, and more) v3.2.5

    Here is fine. And thanks for pointing that one out, it is easy to miss series sometimes :D

    Next release will contain the series, but for the time being you can add the following to your "(Custom)" file:


    <rename id="tt0227538" title="Spy Kids I" />
    <rename id="tt0287717" title="Spy Kids II: Island of Lost Dreams" />
    <rename id="tt0338459" title="Spy Kids III: Game Over" />
    <rename id="tt1517489" title="Spy Kids IV: All the Time in the World in 4D" />

    :D

    Re: IMDb+ Scraper (Fix English, Rename+Group, RottenTomatoes, and more) v3.2.5

    Ok, somebody on IRC posed interesting problem on the following series:


    tt0081748 - Where the Buffalo Roam (1980)
    tt0120669 - Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)
    tt0376136 - The Rum Diary (2011)

    There is not any title connection between these movies, so aside from just leaving them alone as-is, I could use the following rename schemes:


    Hunter S. Thompson I: Where the Buffalo Roam
    Hunter S. Thompson II: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
    Hunter S. Thompson III: The Rum Diary

    Or:


    Psychadelic Gonzo I: Where the Buffalo Roam
    Psychadelic Gonzo II: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
    Psychadelic Gonzo III: The Rum Diary

    Unless somebody can come up with a better description for these bizarre, but awesome, movies.

    Hate it when I miss the obvious ones that I have myself, but did not get around yet to verify ;)

    Added to v1.1.2 of the rename database. That does mean they are added in the "English title (Foreign title)" format, but you can copy and paste all the <rename...> entries for this series into your (Custom) rename database and adjust that if you prefer it in another way.

    It's just easier to have it added by default so that a user can remove it (easy), then not have it and require the user to look up the foreign title on each of them (hard).

    :D

    Nice typo catch on Monty, but 1st one should have renamed. Are you sure yours imported with IMDb tt-ID of tt0071853?

    As for "Die Hard", the default article removal system from MovingPictures has support for English+French+German+Dutch in it, so you have to remove the non-English ones. The 'Die' is part of the German article removal section. I've actually helped somebody before, so you can use:

    https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...oval-setting-conflict-die-hard-movies-103650/

    Then just refresh those movies.

    Will get to the other movies later.

    There are no IMDb movie connections for 'The Animatrix', how exactly do you have the series that you wish to group it? If the concensus is high enough I got no problems adding it to the default rename database system, and of course you can always add it to your personal (Custom) one.

    Hulk (2003) = Hulk (2003) - Movie connections
    The Incredible Hulk (2008) = Der unglaubliche Hulk (2008) - Movie connections

    The first one shows no reference to the other as being a sequel, the second one was more meant as a reboot/remake. However they plan a different type of film series with that one, as the Nick Fury references at the end of the movies make clear.

    It's extremly hard to justify a default rename database entry for those that will make everybody happy, so you are more then welcome to add these to your custom one. My plan was to wait for launch of "The Avengers" movie to see how I should handle them.

    I was toying with the following idea:

    <rename id="tt0800080" title="Marvel I: The Incredible Hulk" sortby="Marvel 01" />
    <rename id="tt0800369" title="Marvel II: Thor" sortby="Marvel 02" />
    <rename id="tt0458339" title="Marvel III: Captain America" sortby="Marvel 03" />
    <rename id="tt0848228" title="Marvel IV: The Avengers" sortby="Marvel 04" />
    <rename id="tt0482631" title="Marvel V: Nick Fury" sortby="Marvel 05" />​

    But then does "Iron Man" belong in that as well, and what about "Thor II" and "Captain America II". It quickly becomes a complex mess that I frankly wanted to leave to each user for the time being :)

    To avoid a forced total sort order, I was also considering something like:


    <rename id="tt0458339" title="Marvel: Captain America I" sortby="Marvel Captain America 01" />
    <rename id="tt1843866" title="Marvel: Captain America II" sortby="Marvel Captain America 02" />
    <rename id="tt0286716" title="Marvel: Hulk" sortby="Marvel Hulk 01" />
    <rename id="tt0800080" title="Marvel: The Incredible Hulk" sortby="Marvel Hulk 02" />
    <rename id="tt0371746" title="Marvel: Iron Man I" sortby="Marvel Iron Man 01" />
    <rename id="tt1228705" title="Marvel: Iron Man II" sortby="Marvel Iron Man 02" />
    <rename id="tt1300854" title="Marvel: Iron Man III" sortby="Marvel Iron Man 03" />
    <rename id="tt0482631" title="Marvel: Nick Fury" sortby="Marvel Nick Fury 01" />
    <rename id="tt0848228" title="Marvel: The Avengers" sortby="Marvel The Avengers 01" />
    <rename id="tt0800369" title="Marvel: Thor I" sortby="Marvel Thor 01" />
    <rename id="tt1981115" title="Marvel: Thor II" sortby="Marvel Thor 02" />

    But then I'm in conflict again when it comes to movies such as tt0036697 or tt0119781.
