Adding descriptions to manually added games
« on: March 28, 2016, 12:59:44 AM »
Hey there,

Was just trying to add game description for some games that are not in the porting kit. I copied and pasted from other games, edited, saved. Now PK crashes when selecting the game. With an unknown archive object error.

When you add the WSI to PK are you going to file > 'Install WSI'?  :) :)

Also what games are you doing??

Hey,

No, u ssed wineskin to create a blank wrapper, and added them to PK with add application.

But i come with no description, so i thought i’d try and copy one that was made installing in PK, and edit to need.

Games I was trying was 7th guest and 11th (I know there’s Mac version now but i already had the windows versions)

You probably tried to edit the WSII file with a text editor app I assume. Doing that won't work because the file will be corrupted, and PK will have problems loading it. I will add a new feature in the next PK releases so users will be able to add/edit a local game description. I've also made a change so PK it won't crash when loading games with corrupted descriptions.

Alright, update released  ;D

Now you should be able to add a description to your local games throw the Properties window.
