An user (hi mccrispy) asked me to explain the options that you can use in BGG1tool when you click on one of the commands that loads a list of games in the left box (from user, geeklist, family, or rankings); there is a list of options that defines how the new list of games combines with the old one (the list already present in the left box). The default option "Rep" means that the new list overwrites the old, the meaning of the others is:
Add: the new list is added to the end of the old,
Sub: every game in the new list is removed from the old list, if present,
And: an ID goes to the new list only if it's present both in the old and in the new list,
Mis: the new list contains all the games from the new list that aren't present in the old one

Examples

old list
1

3
new list

5

Rep result

Add result

Mis result

To answer the original question: how can I get a list of the top-1000 games best suited for five players that I don't own, I start from downloading the top-1000 games list.
