Ok, I'll have to verify why "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" didn't work. I can also add "alternative spelling)" and "(director's cut)" to the blacklist, but with "(undefined)" we are going to have a problem. There are actually a ton of foreign movies that get the proper English title based on that "(undefined)" entry. Like I stated before, it's a real mess of inconsistency over at imdb.com. Might have to add that one to the default rename database then to compensate for the misshap.Hi rochess,
I've done another full rescan with v4.0.4 of the scraper, all I've mentioned are now showing correctly (thanks!) apart from "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" still shows as just "The Curious Case".
Some new ones, not sure if they were there before and I didn't notice or if they are new ones...
"District 9" shows as "District Nine" [International (alternative spelling) (English title)] AKAs
"Donnie Darko" shows as "Donnie Darko: The Director's Cut" [USA (director's cut)] AKAs
"Empire Records" shows as just "Empire" [(undefined)] AKAs
Nice catch, and yes I'll have to add Part+Volume to the exclusion list of not to strip.A bit off subject but I've also found a couple of abnormalities, which aren't a huge deal but thought I'd mention it.
First with regard to the option to "Remove Roman numeral from first movie", I have this option turned on but it makes the Godfather and Kill Bill series look odd (see below). Could exceptions be put in place so that if the word before the I is "Part" or "Volume" then it would leave the I in place? (I'm being awkward I know!)
The Godfather: Part
The Godfather: Part II
The Godfather: Part III
Kill Bill: Volume
Kill Bill: Volume II
That I can't do. The only place I can do the rename database system correct is at the very end, which is why I added those (foreign) parts into the rename system. The only way to correct that if you prefer another format is to copy the entries into your custom rename database and adjust the titles to your liking.Secondly, I have the 3 "The Girl..." films, I have the setting off to include the foreign title but it still shows after the English, example below:
The Girl I: with the Dragon Tattoo (Män som hatar kvinnor)
...I've just found this in the rename xml, so I guess that's what it's using. Just a thought, could the foreign title (if enabled) be added after the entry in the rename xml and not included in the renamed title?
Again this isn't a big issue, just another "nice to have"
Thanks again for all your hard work, and congrats on the forum!
