6.1 Scraping 'Resize Image' Fix Request



  • Over each release of Recalbox, there has been that one annoying scraping issue that pops up frequently.

    "Error Saving Reized Image. Out of Memory? Disk Full?"
    <retry> <skip> <cancel>

    Since 6.1 is having its scraping feature fixed. Is there anyway for you guys to manage this resize error exception handling error and automatically default it to SKIP and allow it to continue scraping.
    Some of my rom folders have thousands of roms in it and even if I let the scraping run on its own, I still have to baby sit it and click on the SKIP from time to time which increases the time of the scraping process to complete.



  • @tdelios for now, with limited ram on pi, there isn't any good reason to scrape directly on your recalbox, do it with an external tool like skraper



  • @voljega so are you saying that the Scraping feature will no longer be available for version 6.1 and onwards?

    I've tried those other external ones.. not had much luck with them.. or at least the ones I tried for my Windows 10 computer.



  • Try ARRM.
    Easily the best I've ever used on a PC, and so so many options.
    Even something as simple as pulling in "disk 1 of 2" from a disk file name when scraping IF you want it to do so, and being able to create your own 3d cover and screen from images you have downloaded yourself ( for those rare games no database can find).

    Honestly - Id never use an on Pi scraper after using it - I used it to re scrape about 30 of my systems.



  • @tdelios said in 6.1 Scraping 'Resize Image' Fix Request:

    @voljega so are you saying that the Scraping feature will no longer be available for version 6.1 and onwards?

    did i say that ? really ?



  • @voljega might as well have said that considering that you said that due to the limited ram that there isn't any good reason to scrape directly on your recalbox.
    Might as well remove the feature to make way for other features/enhancements and use the ARRM external tools then



  • @tdelios you make a lot of assumptions.

    @tdelios Please use skraper to scrape your roms and adjust the size of your scraped images by configuring it in the options of this amazing software.
