Recalbox 7.0

Faster way to scrape artwork in Recalbox?



  • First off, LOVE Recalbox. It's everything Retropie should have been. Anyone looking to try their hand at a RPI3 retro console build, i'd recommend Recalbox first. Retropie is for the advanced enthusiast that doesn't mind sitting down and putting countless hours into customizing their build, screwing with command lines and stuff, etc . But for everyone else that just wants a convenient and decent looking/working set-up out of the box and start gaming ASAP, Recalbox is the way to go.

    Gushing aside, i ran into a problem recently when finally trying to Scrape artwork for all my stuff--- It takes FOREVER and a day. Recently i had to be out of town for about a week and just decided to set it to Scrape and left. I came back four days later and only saw about 22% artwork for my stuff, particularly MAME done. Yikes. Is there an easier way to do this? Like a program for the PC that can do the same thing. Or am i limited to Recalbox's in-menu Art Scraper?

    @skullgrin there's uxml scraper for the pc but it's the one used in Recalbox now



  • @voljega Hmmm ok. Maybe something wrong with my build. Then again I did shut it down improperly quite a few times. The scraper was working fine a while back. I'm going to try and format card/reinstall O.S, then try again.

    @skullgrin yeah try to never shut it down violently if you can, even if it's stuck or freezed, use putty and poweroff command

    @voljega what do you mean by “uxml is the one used by recalbox”? Recalbox uses the database from screenscraper, like UXS do, but the scrapers are totally different.

    @skullgrin check this:

    And look for the word scraper (or similar) here in the forum.
