But I can't click through to actually see the details (set number, name etc).
Is there something that stops you clicking through to sets without a main image?
Are you on the "grid" view? If so, switch to the "list" view and this should allow you to continue to the Set Details page (even if clicking the image on the left doesn't work, clicking the text should). Or searching for the set by number should get you there too.
At last I can see all the sets I've decided I want, even before there are images!!
It scared the crap out of me because I was afraid it would push an empty list to Brickset and wipe out my collection. Luckily it is still intact on the website and I took a CSV backup quickly, just in case.
I just tried a Force Stop under Settings > Apps > myBrickset and that seems to have fixed it for now. After I started it up again all my sets/collection reappeared. So others might want to try a Force Stop on the app or reboot their phones and that might clear it out.
As far as the app was concerned everything was working as expected - the api was returning success just but didn't contain any data. There was no 'error' I could intercept or display to say that something had gone wrong.
These changes have required some tweaks to the syncing code (which hasn't changed for several years), so I'm more cautious about doing a roll-out than usual. I'm pretty sure everything is working correctly, and have been using these changes myself for a while now.
If you'd like to assist with testing the latest version, you can opt in at https://play.google.com/apps/testing/uk.co.otissoft.mybrickset. Be warned that there is a chance - although very small in my opinion - that this will cause data corruption (eg, some sets not correctly syncing their data, so that brickset.com and myBrickset become out of sync).
You can opt out of testing at any time by uninstalling the beta version and installing the regular version from the play store.
If you do decide to opt in, please post here so that I know how many extra eyes I have and also let me know how you get on - especially if you encounter any issues!
Whether you opt in or not, many thanks for your continued usage of myBrickset!
Nice catch, I'll see if I can fix that.
> Brickset set numbers aren't only numeric
Darn... you're right. Hmm.. I'll have to think about this one, don't want to lose the numeric keypad when that's used for 99% of searches, but it would be good to support non-numerics too.
Thanks to everyone for testing. Was planning to do a public release this w/e but it looks like that may slip a little.
@NickF22 the Subtheme issue should be fixed
@sid3windr I've added the ability to switch between keyboard types when using the SetNumber field - not great but the best I can figure out atm
Graphic design isn't my forte either (as you've probably noticed by using the app!) so I'm using a textual button (ie no graphics). There are no suitable standard images for what I need, but even if I was able to source one I'd still be stuck with a button that looks out of place unless I can figure out a better solution.
From the Set Details screen, click the icon (3 horizontal bars and a triangle) to the left of the overflow icon to view any available ACM data.
U.S. Registration Nos. 4903968, 4520327 and EU Registration Nos.
EM00050450, EM00050518 for the LEGO® Minifigure figurine design.
4520327 - Yellow Minifig Head
00050450 - Minfig
00050518 - Minifig
My understanding is that I'm not in violation as I'm not using a yellow head or using the full minifigure shape, but giving the grief last time I think I'm just going to change the icon and hope for the best. Google will likely require the complainant to confirm that the app is now ok but this will almost certainly not happen (as they don't get paid to do so) so the app may fall out of the play store for a while..
Any ideas for a replacement icon to use? Bear in mind I'm a coder and not an artist!!
(Not that I'm a marketing guy or anything, but it coordinates better with the 'brand'.)
There are several reasons for this, one of them being that it's supposed to help keep the lawyers off my back (tho' that doesn't seem to help..!).
If that's not the case and your owned sets are showing fine but your wanted ones are not, then please send me your logs through the app (main screen | menu | send log file) and I'll take a look.
I haven't done all of my usual pre-release tests on this, but it should work fine - the most dangerous thing I've done since the last release is update the build tools.
it says "unable to login please retry"
From your profile it appears you're in Turkey. I've done some testing and that is one of the areas that brickset.com now requires a captcha for (the first time you visit brickset.com you'll need to complete an "I am not a robot" test).
This affects all API calls too, so all apps using it are affected and not just myBrickset.
I have spent many days trying to find a way around this. Unfortunately I have not yet determined a solution that allows the user to complete the captcha and then have the API calls honour this.
What this means is that I do not currently have a way to allow users from some geographic regions to use Brickset's API, which means they cannot login - or if already logged in, they cannot sync their data or download the latest sets etc.
One workaround is to use a proxy or vpn based in a different country (eg, the UK). Once you have logged in once myBrickset will remember your information and you won't have to sign in again, so you can reuse the app without having to connect to a proxy or vpn each time - but it won't be able to access any data stored on brickset.com until you do use a proxy or vpn again.
Sorry for the disappointing news. If I ever figure this out or brickset.com change their captcha policies then I'll provide an update. In the meantime I'll look at improving the app so that it reports the issue to the user, so you're not left wondering what's happening.
