  1. This entry in Comics should be moved to Books. It is the prose novel version of the comics. I tried creating an entry for it in Books, but I keep getting an error dialog box: Can't Save Issue: Had trouble saving this issue: constraint failed FOREIGN KEY constraint failed. *Seemed to have fixed error by naming the entry "Batman: The Ultimate Evil (Novel)".
  2. Appleseed ID should be moved from Books back to Comics because a good chunk of it is composed of a short story comic. In addition, the trade dress matches Appleseed (Dark Horse) second editions as well as Appleseed Hypernotes.
  3. Yesterday, I ran the latest content update and this error came up with the app: Back Issue #125 (magazine): UPC #1-82658-00420-0 is in the database. When scanned, I get "ERROR: Scan Lookup Request Failed With Error".
  4. Support helped. Apparently, I had multiple databases with the same ID. Deleting them from Collection Statistics and running the new weekly update cleared them from my list.
  5. Here is a sample of comics, magazines and books that I've scanned using the app: 7-59606-02435-3-00111 X-Men Survival Guide to the Mansion, scan comes up as "ERROR: Scan lookup request failed with error" 0-70989-36587-2-08 Heavy Metal (2nd series) #300-A, scan show 8 different issues of Heavy Metal and "Loading..." 7-25274-22493-7-58 Star Wars Insider #172 (Comic Store Exclusive cover), scan comes up as "ERROR: Scan lookup request failed with error", issue not in database 0-74808-01805-5-39 Star Wars Insider #189-A, scan comes up as "ERROR: Scan lookup request failed with error", this issue is in the database 8-50008-92708-9-00341 The Cimmerian: The Frost Giant's Daughter #3-D, scan shows correctly 9-780760-762059-52498 Marvel: The Characters and Their Universe, scan comes up as "ERROR: Item not found"
  6. Looking up Amazing Heroes only brings up titles under the "Magazine" category, I have no issues of Amazing Heroes under the "Comic Book
  7. Yeah, I'm scanning barcodes. I have a comic that's showing up as "unrecognized", and I just want to know where in the database it belongs.
  8. Nowadays, whenever I use the Scan Item feature, I get the window that says ERROR: Request failed with error. So I can't enter new comics or check to see what the comic should be listed under.
  9. When I run the weekly update and check the Unknown Items list, I'm getting something weird. Under "Comics: Unrecognized Comic Titles", Amazing Heroes is not listed. It shouldn't be, it's listed under "Magazines". But under "Comics: Unrecognized Comics", there are listed a number of Amazing Heroes issues. I don't have Amazing heroes as a Title under Comic Books, only under Magazines. I don't even own any copies of Amazing Heroes. I did have some on my Wish List, but I had removed those a while back. It's shown up like this after at least the past three weekly updates.
  10. When you run the weekly update, a pop-up window appears. There is a link toward the bottom that says "View unrecognized items". That will show you what you have that does NOT show up on the Comicbase Master Database.
  11. The pop-up window title is "Can't save this issue"
  12. Going through the list of stuff in MY database that is not in YOUR database. Item in question is listed as "X-men: The Ultimate Guide", a book by DK in my comic list. Now, the actual name of this book is "Ultimate X-Men". When I try to add it the books section, I get this pop-up: "Had trouble saving this issue: constraint failed FOREIGN KEY constraint failed". Any advice?
  13. While running a Most Valued Items report, I saw that my Sheena 1/K (Authentix blank cover) was worth $300(!). Well, that cant be right. So I questioned that. Now, the picture for that issue comes up as the one for 1/L (Jungle Green cover) and THAT issue's cover shows up as 1/M (Atlas Comics cover). Guess what 1/M shows up as? Authentix blank cover (which should be... 1/K). Side note: If you are looking for a Sheena 1/K (Authentix blank cover), we should talk...😉
  14. When I try to update from Sidekick, it starts to download for a few seconds, I get the message: "An exception occurred during a WebClient request."
  15. This Title is actually #12 under the entry: The Michael Moorcock Library
  16. Any movement on this? My profile still shows 6 contributions when I was around 1700+. It hasn't even been tracking my latest contributions.
  17. Yeah, I used to be in the 85-90 range and the last time I looked, I was off the charts...
  18. I've been a ComicBase user since the beginning, when it ran on the Apple OS. It was my tradition to pick up the latest version at the San Diego Comic Con. Now, I have a stack of disks, collected from over the years, taking up a lot of room. No one else can use these, since they were registered to me. Should I just junk them?
  19. I think I found the problem: I'm running ComicBase 2020, but Sidekick is using an older database. It doesn't explain why other new comics show up.
  20. After using the Comicbase app to add purchases and checking new purchases, I got this dialog box:
  21. Weird. Ran the weekly update, did the File Tools, optimized the database. Still, that title doesn't show up for me.
  22. https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/TitleDetail.aspx?TitleID=64159&M=1 In Atomic Avenue, but not in Comicbase.
