Universal metadata Steam source - Crow - 01-24-2020

This is a plugin that gives you an option to download game information from Steam store even for games that are not imported from Steam.

When downloading metadata while editing the game, it will give you an option to specifically choose what store page to use as metadata source. When downloading metadata in bulk, it will try and match games automatically (it's not and can't be 100% accurate).

Download and additional info is available on plugin's GitHub page.

Updated to 1.1

This version will only work with Playnite 7 onward!
  • Use "features" field instead of "tags" field for consistency with the Steam library plugin
  • Option to select specific Store screenshot



RE: Universal metadata Steam source - KharmaScribbles - 03-23-2020

Wow!  Thank you so much for this!  

I have many games that I haven't even played yet, and it bothered me that for the non-steam games there was little to no info about them - so I forget what they are even about or if I'm interested in playing them at that moment.. This will be perfect!

Does this add Steam as a metadata source in Options menu so that it could be set as default metadata source?  If not, feature request Smile


RE: Universal metadata Steam source - bigshinygloom - 03-24-2020

Hmm, I see the extension appear under extensions and have restarted playnite, but I still don't see the option under download metadata. I only get official store, Wikipedia, and IGDB. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

Can you go to "About Playnite" menu and generate diagnostics package for me?

Just created. Unsure if I need to attach it somehow, but here is the code: "070856d3-0ed4-4d6b-9d63-3d660231ff2a".


RE: Universal metadata Steam source - Crow - 03-24-2020

Are you sure you extracted plugin archive to correct folder (and that all files were extracted properly)? Plugin fails to load because of generic "file not found" error (sadly I don't know which file). The same goes to "Store SpooferSystem" plugin you have installed (btw you have two different installations there for some reason).


RE: Universal metadata Steam source - bigshinygloom - 03-24-2020

Hmm, no luck. I removed and re-added it, and same thing - it appears as an extension, but when I go to download metadata, I don't see the option for it. I even tried downloading a separate portable playnite and unzipping it to the extension folder - no dice.


RE: Universal metadata Steam source - Crow - 03-24-2020

Can you post list of files present in your extension directory?

bigshinygloom what you have there is the plugin source code. You should download the compiled program, which you can find in the releases page here: https://github.com/JosefNemec/PlaynitePlugin-SteamStoreMetadata/releases

RE: Universal metadata Steam source - Idecman - 01-27-2021

Great work!!!!

Just one question. Could the plugin get the information in a language other than English, for example Spanish?

Thanks


RE: Universal metadata Steam source - ownedbycats - 08-13-2021

When downloading metadata for this game (1328670), I got an "object reference not set to an instance of an object." Downloading via official source still works, but doesn't let me choose another screenshot for background. I've not had chance to check more extensively, but could it be due to the age check on the store page?

Thank you.
