Game Collector Free is a great software package for those who are looking to quickly categorise their video game collection. Not only will it list all games in a clear manner, but other functions such as the ability to download publisher information can be useful when a specific file needs to be retrieved within only a few seconds.

Main Features and Options

Game Collector Free automatically downloads all of the most pertinent information associated with each file. Examples here include the publisher, the developer and the game description. It is likewise possible to download cover images for even faster visual recognition. The title of the game can be entered into the search field while it is also possible to scan the bar code of the game with the use of a smartphone. Multiple views and layouts are provided. These templates can then be customised to suit the unique preferences of the user.

Other Tools and Uses

This software supports common formats such as DVDs, CDs, Blu-Ray discs and cartridges. There are even times when trailers for a specific game can be downloaded via a YouTube link. A final benefit is that Game Collector Free comes equipped with cloud storage capabilities. This can help to free up space on a computer while simultaneously providing back-up files in the event of a system crash.

Changes

  • "System" and "User" Templates can now be placed in two separate locations. System Templates are back to their old location in: \Program Files\Collectorz.com\Game Collector\Templates\
  • User Templates can now be (optionally) placed in a user configurable location (Tools / Options), which defaults to \My Documents\Game Collector\Templates\
  • Added: Import from Text feature moved from Add Automatically screen to File / Import From / Text,
  • so that items are imported directly into the database, instead of to the Search Queue.
  • Portuguese Brasilian language support

Game Collector is a program that helps you catalog your personal library. Adding games to the database is quick and easy, just type the title and platform or scan its barcode with your barcode scanner. Game Collector will automatically download all data (title, platform, developer, publisher, genre, etc... including the cover image). The information is retrieved from the Amazon game catalog.

Once you have added a number of games to the inventory, you can view it on the main screen. It is possible to show a simple list of all video games, but you can also organize your library by platform, publisher or genre, etc.. using the automatic folder feature. All lists can be sorted instantly, just by clicking the column headers or by using the Sort Order screen. You can sort on any field, e.g. alphabetically on title or platform, or sorted on release date or purchase date. Use the Quick Search feature to find all games that contain the word you type, or use the Advanced Filter command to search in specific fields, even multiple fields at once.
