Using the latest YACReaderLibrary on MacOS, I wasn't using for a few weeks, but now since 2-3 days working on finalizing my library.... however whenever I try to get tags from comicvine, I get an "unknown error" - I do have an API key entered, I really don't know what the problem is (I even installed the ReaderLibrary program again over the old one, didn't help..) any hints?

This is the issue: comicvine.gamespot.com/forums/api-develo...sl-video--1861940/#1

I have a working version in Windows, I will try to release a new version of YACReader soon.

There is fix for this without the need of a new release.

Step 1: add COMIC_VINE_BASE_URL entry to your YACReaderLibrary.ini config file
[ComicVine]
COMIC_VINE_API_KEY=your_api_key
COMIC_VINE_BASE_URL=https://comicvine.gamespot.com/api

YACReaderLibrary.ini can be found in these locations

macos
/Users/yourusername/Library/Application\ Support/YACReader/YACReaderLibrary/YACReaderLibrary.ini

windows
C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\YACReader\YACReaderLibrary\YACReaderLibrary.ini

linux
it depends on your distro, it should be in your home directory

Step 2: only for windows, download openssl binaries zip, extract it and put libeay32.dll[/] and ssleay32.dll in YACReader's installation folder.
indy.fulgan.com/SSL/openssl-1.0.2k-i386-win32.zip

Step 3: delete COMIC_VINE_BASE_URL entry when a new release of YACReader will be released.

Usually it's located here:
~/.local/share/YACReader/YACReaderLibrary/YACReaderLibrary.ini 

Please take note that this is a hidden directory ;)
My answers are not necessarily official YACReader statements but mostly represent my own opinion in technical matters.

So, I left in the original API Key:
COMIC_VINE_API_KEY=

and just added the BASE_URL. So:
[ComicVine]
COMIC_VINE_API_KEY=
COMIC_VINE_BASE_URL=https://comicvine.gamespot.com/api

and now it works.

I can confirm this as working on Windows 10. I had not the problems, that user @neurohacked described on macOS.
