Shows how to find the ID of a game in Flashpoint Launcher.

This page describes how to submit metadata changes to games that are already in Flashpoint.

First, use your copy of Flashpoint to find the ID of the game you wish to change.

  1. Click the game to select it.
  2. On the right sidebar, click the pencil button. If this button is not available, click the Config tab of the launcher and check the Enable Editing box.
  3. Copy the ID shown. An example is shown on the right.

Next, create a text file using this ID. The text file should specify the new value for each field you would like to update. Here is an example of how this text file will look:

1e2f9810-f19f-4caa-bedb-1124ab04a630
Developer: Armor Games, jmtb02, Jimp
Publisher: Armor Games

This will change the Developer and Publisher of the entry for Elephant Quest to the values specified.

You can also specify more than one game in this text file. This enables batch-editing. Here is an example:

1e2f9810-f19f-4caa-bedb-1124ab04a630
Developer: Armor Games, jmtb02, Jimp
Publisher: Armor Games
59041e00-c77d-4cc1-a00e-5a1161d84cea
Developer: Armor Games, JoeyBetz, Jimp
Series: Sushi Cat
35b1a44e-6356-00ef-6e51-d38dbb77dc6b
Developer: Armor Games, JoeyBetz, Jimp
Series: Sushi Cat

This will update the entries for Elephant Quest, Sushi Cat, and Sushi Cat 4: The Honeymoon.
