THEGAMESDB scraper isn't working.

  • I just installed RecalBox on my Raspberry Pi 3B+. I'm on the latest version which is V.6.0 DRAGONBLAZE. The only system I have on my Recalbox is SNES. I'm getting an error which is "WE CAN'T FIND ANY SYSTEMS! CHECK THAT YOUR PATHS ARE CORRECT IN THE SYSTEMS CONFIGURATION FILE, AND YOUR GAME DIRECTORY HAS AT LEAST ONE GAME WITH THE CORRECT EXTENSION'' My ROMS are in the right location so that's definitely not the issue. Has the API for GAMESDB not been updated yet? I know that it wasn't working on RetroPie and it was fixed in a update. I'm totally new to RecalBox. I just came from a previous installation of Retropie. I don't even know how to even get in the Recalbox config to even change the scraper if that's what I need to do.

  • I have the same problem.

    If i understand wright, in the newest update the scraper is deactivated till the bug is fixed in updates in future(6.1). See @ changelog

  • @gameboy So my theory was correct then. Thanks for the information. I actually researched and found out I can scrap straight from my computer using Universal XML Scraper. This program will do until the internal scraper is fixed.
