Moving scraper data from 3.3 to 4.0 Recalbox



  • Team, I have followed the instructions for backing up the 3.3 scrapes from my RPI2.  I bought the RPI3 and loaded up 4.0.  Moved all my ROMS as well as updated all my BIOS files. Having issues understanding how to move the gamelists.xml and related thumbnails to the new 4.0 SAMBA share.  If I copy over the gamelist.xml in Atari 2600 for example, and reboot, the original gamelist.xml replaces what I copied over.  And I am still unsure where to move my thumbnail .jpgs to.  Any help for someone who has done this would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

    you must kill emulatationstation before upload file. via putty in ssh, /etc/init.d/S31emulationstation stop prefer or killall emulationstation



  • @Acris, that worked like a charm, and all my games look normal except for my last step.  How do I get the image files to load?  Where do I place them, what must be the folder name etc?

    Sorry but i think i dont understand the question but images into /recalbox/share/roms/snes/images or downloaded_images same folder path into gamelist.xml



  • I tried like you said, renamed the folder from the original backup scrape from 3.3.0 from atari7800 to images and downloaded_images rebooted each time still wont see the images.

    @kryptto : Before v 3.0.0 Exemple SNES GAMELIST.XML

     <game id="1046" source="theGamesDB.net">
              <path>./ActRaiser (USA).zip</path>
              <name>ActRaiser (USA)</name>
              <desc>During game play the player fills the role of the 'Master', a powerful being awakened from a long sleep to find the civilizations of his former world in shambles. Through a combination of side-scrolling action stages and overhead-view "god" simulation mode the Master slowly rebuilds his world and regains his followers and powers. He is not referred to as a deity of any kind, and it is stated in the manual that he is mortal, and this is the reason he hid away from the demons he was fighting when he had just enough power to seal himself away and wait them out.</desc>

    <image>/recalbox/share/system/.emulationstation/downloaded_images/atari7800/Ace of Aces (USA)-image.jpg</image> to <image>./images/Ace of Aces (USA)-image.jpg</image> images folder in atari7800 folder /recalbox/share/atari7800/images



  • errr, just a thing : ES internal scrapper and fullscrape will download images in the downloaded_images folder. So, to keep it simple, better put all images in the downloaded_images folder
