Jackbox Party Pack Series Showing Up In Different Places Alphabetically - symphonic643 - 03-15-2021

Hi,

I appreciate all the work being put into this program, really wonderful job with consistent updates and plugin support.

Admittedly I haven't looked too deeply into this issue in the metadata, but I own several of the Jackbox Party Pack series games. They are showing up in different places alphabetically in my list however, with some of them sorted near the "J" for Jackbox, and others with the "T" for The. All of them are on Steam except for one which is on Epic (#4), so maybe that has something to do with it? The split happens at number 4, and the other Steam ones follow it. I've seen this in other places too with inconsistent articles being placed in different places alphabetically (randomly as far as I can tell), but this one is especially noticeable since it's in two different places and also in the same series.

I'm attaching some screenshots. Hope you can help, thanks!

There is a sorting name field for each game that you can use to correct this. If you haven't already edited this, then I can only assume that it is pulling this info from Steam and Epic and it is inconsistent there to start with.

I haven't edited anything with regard to sorting names.

OK, well in that case it looks like this is just what it has downloaded from Steam and Epic. If you want them to be consistent, you will need to manually edit the sorting name field in Playnite yourself, depending on how you prefer it.
