[SOFT] Skraper

  • Revisor

    Apparently, the problem for 1941 disappear as it came !
    Thank you !

    And, for information, I created a custom mix for Skraper which is (or should be) the same than the Recalbox Mix 1 of ScreenScraper.
    For me, it gives better results if all resources (screenshot, wheel, box) are not in same language/cover/...

    If interested, you can download it here: https://www.proximuscloud.be/web/app/share/invite/kfzfLCeKdh

    @lmerckx I can include it in the next release if you're ok :)

    Beta 8 (or Rc1, or even first final release) is approaching quickly.

    Until then, here are link to latest semi-private betas:

    @Bkg2k No problem, I share it to be used. :)

  • Hi!
    Didn't know this app until you talked about it during RecalBox live event tonight...
    Just tried it! Amazing!
    Thanks so much Bkg2k

  • @bkg2k Hi, is there any option to scrape (skrape) only games that haven't any metadata yet?

    Skraper is finished but some games have not been detected. So I want to do another run for missing games ONLY with changed program settings.

    In Emulationstation Scraper this setting exists, unfortunately could not find it in Skraper.

    Hi, try the "update" option:

  • @abunille Seems to work, thanks. Now I have another problem:
    No matter what I change (tried all regions, etc.), Skraper will not find some games at all. It's only a few, so it would be no problem at all adding metadata in gamelist.xml for those manually, BUT:
    I'd like to have same picture style for all games (screenshot + system,...) and it seems it's not possible to download the png-files at screenscraper.fr directly, even not with registered account and even though these graphics seem to exist there for missing games! Any ideas?

    Ok, then the CRC and Filename of your roms seems not to be in the Database from ScreenScraper.
    2 options:

      • You can just rename your files like one which is in the Database of ScreenScraper.
        (Go to ScreenScraper Homepage, log in and search for one of your games.
        Click on it and look in the ROMs/ISOs field. Here are all filenames listed, which exist in the Database.)
        And on Skraper Soft:
        look in the "Miscellaneous" section that your "Database matching method" is not only "CRC". Use the crc, then filename option.
      • Or, after Scraping you will find a "blablabla missing.xml" file (dont know the right name right now) in your Folder. With these Informations you can go to ScreenScraper Discord/IRC, and ask if they will include in the Database. I dont know the source quality of your roms.

    And for future Problems:
    Maybe a direct contact on ScreenScraper Discord/IRC is the better option ;)

  • @abunille Thanks, solution 1.) works great!
