    @Gonzakpo you can change the folder name and location in the for-loop in the main part. If you need help, tell me where exactly you want to store it and I'll find the correct way (or die trying!).
    Mamedb is down since today so maybe by fba, mame and neogeo was the problem? Or every other system too? sselph's scraper hasn't enabled arcade systems yet.

    @paradadf Does this script works for Atari2600 scrapping ? And what is the size of the download images ?

    @voljega it works and right now it is set to 400px width, you can change it on the parameters with any text editor.

    Yes, the problem is for mame. So I have to wait for mamedb to be up again.

    About the image folder, I know how to modify the script. I'm just pointing that if I change the variable "imagePath" to anything I want like "game_images" it changes the ppath stored in the gamelist.xml but NOT the actual place where the images are downloaded. I'm just saying that It would be nice if you use the same variable "imagePath" for both things (gamelist path and stored folder) so they match. I know how to modify it, I'm just suggesting you an improvement of the script :P

    Anyway, thanks for your help!!

    @Gonzakpo ahh okk, now I understood xD. I'm on my phone right now, but I believe there are two two different variables from scraper.exe. But I'll take a look to see if it's a convinient change to somehow "merge" these. Thanks!
    You can use the Universal XML Scraper instead... look for it in the forum if you don't know it yet. It has many more features and works with all systems.

    Great! It's working as excepted now :) Thank you.

    I will try the other scraper you recommended.



  • Hi. I'm new to Recalbox so excuse my silly noob quesion. :)
    First of all, this is working great on PC, thanks a million for that. I ran the fastscraper and ES is displaying all game information perfectly on Windows.
    But when I copy the downloaded images folder and gamelist.xml to the corresponding rom folders on Recalbox (or copy the entire rom folder for that matter) the information doesn't show when I restart. What am I doing wrong?

    @Yoakin you should kill emulation statione before copying tge gamelist.xml. look at wiki



  • why anyone make some video tutorials of this??? im veeeeeeeery noob on this :( i´ve been trying with a lot of methods (im in MAC) with no luck at all -.-, i let my computer work for 1 entire night apparently scrapping but after finish.... no images displayed on my recalbox (4.0 with Raspi 3)... any noob help please? last method i use was

    Log in your recalbox in SSH like explained on the wiki then type those 2 commands :

    wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/substring/fullscrape/master/fullscrape.sh
    chmod u+x ./fullscrape.sh
    Now you can run fullscrape.sh :
    ./fullscrape.sh
    Here are the possible options
    -u : update mode only. It will just scrape roms that were not scraped yet. Quite useful if you already spent some time scraping, or if the previous scrape crashed
    systemname : you can specify several systems seperated by space (nes snes n64 gb gbc gba megadrive mastersystem sega32x gamegear pcengine atari2600 lynx psx scummvm segacd mame fba fba_libretro neogeo)
    Examples :
    ./fullscrape.sh : hold tight baby, will scrape everything in its way, dead or alive. You would usually run this only the frist time when you dropped all your roms and want to scrape all
    ./fullscrape.sh -u : update mode, only scrape non scraped roms
    ./fullscrape.sh nes fba : full rescrape of nes anf fba systems
    ./fullscrape.sh -u n64 psx mame : only update n64 psx and mame systems
    WARNING : fba_libretro has a little bug, that will be corrected in 4.0.0 : scraping can’t be displayed. This can be manually solved if you really really are desperate …

    @SkarlosVilliers ehhh... did you mind reading the title? Or at least the very first post? It is a BATCH file and those work only on Windows.
    And again... this is something completely different than the fullscraper, so your post will be disregarded here.

    Hello,

    Nice soft ! :)

    How to add "Standard (3img)" and "Standard (4img)" to prefer images please ?



  • @Genetik57 not the same soft ;) here you are in the BATCH version ;)

    You refere to 3img or 4img MIX profil, they are only avalaible in universal xml scraper
    (And you can change it in the Mix Profil Menu ;) )

    @screech Mince, j'utilise les deux logiciels pour compléter mes scrapes :/ Fastscraper est rapide comme l'éclaire, dommage qu'il n'y a pas cette fonction



  • petite astuce pour UXS V2 : si tu participes à la BDD : http://www.screenscraper.fr/ et que tu t'identifie avec tes identifiants screenscraper sur UXS, tu peux scraper plus vite ;)



  • This tool is amazing thank you! I was just wondering if there was a way to remove the Region at the end of the Game title? eg. Mario Paint (JU). Thanks!

    @davidwrightini just edit the batch to:
    set useNoIntroName=-use_nointro_name=false

    and you will get the name from SS instead.



  • I have a problem: i put newest scraper.exe from scraper_windows_amd64.zip and your .bat into the roms folder of my pi3 via wlan. but the bar doesnt find the scraper.exe, although i can normally start the scraper.exe there. Hes saying something about UNC folder.

    Any hints?
    Thx
