Anime Titles are engilsh

Post by raulm753 »

The animes are named with english titles. I looked through the code, only 1 line, on the anidb client and saw that the title for the anime comes from the main title and not from the official title. I opened the FileBot.jar, with winrar, and tried to change it to official instead of main. This did not work at all and made the scritp crash instead. I was wondering how I or you the developer could change the title of animes to offcial title instead of main title. I also would be insterested in the reason for choosing main instead of official. Thank you.

There is only one main title per language multiple official titles per language as far as I remember. Check if anidb has the entries for your language cause it'll default to English as fallback. I remember testing with Monster and I got name and titles in Japanese characters alright.

Checked the code:
1. First select //titles/title[@type='official' and @lang=...]
Or 2. if 1. fails //titles/title[@type='main']

So we do use official title for the selected language or fallback to the main title.
