file ARDB fix for auto update of .csv files and image hosting.

17 Apr 2012 08:20 #28059 by Walt

After updating to the latest CSV in ARDB loads of cards are missing and I'm unable to load past decks.

Crypt count before updating: 1368, after: 1311 — one vampire that's missing: The Unnamed.


if you check under "crypt browser/select/secundo" and check under "by set" you'll notice that whole HttB set is now missing (the same for library/select/by set)

inside csv file there are all cards but ARDB seems unable to read HTTB cards anymore

Seconded.

I tried to attach an older version of the file that still works, without Pascal's changes, but evidently 284 kb is too big for the forum.

The problem with Pascal's HttB stuff is that the file MUST end in a newline, pretty much, just put a blank line at the end of vtessets.csv.

Actually, same goes for all the .csv files - they have to end with a blank line.

I'd strongly recommend that anyone who wants to edit these .csv files uses a Diff tool (like P4Merge) to compare their changed version with the original.

Oh, and if you ever get any import errors with ARDB, you have to close ARDB, reopen it, import a working vtescsv.zip, close ARDB, reopen it. THEN you can import your (possibly) fixed modified csv.zip. Even though that message pops up about "Rolling back to prevent database corruption" it's a lie. It misses cleaning up something, and you'll have problem on subsequent imports until you reopon ARDB and import successfully.

Updated files with a blankline
For example, the last line of vtessets.csv is:

"HttB","20100203","Heirs to the Blood","White Wolf"\r\n
\r\n

Interestingly, "update from Internet" didn't work, but "update from local file" after downloading the .zip worked. (ARDB 3.1.1)
