[BATCH] Scrape your roms on your PC - fastscraper



  • @paradadf if I tell it to scrape nes, instead of all, it does the same thing after the append question. But I can just run scraper.exe and it starts downloading pictures into a "images" folder it creates

    @wggallagher have you changed anything inside the batch file? Try downloading it again. I have no idea what is happening. Otherwise, it must be something wirh your computers configuration.



  • @paradadf no, I didn't touch the batch file. I'll try downloading again. I see that it's suppose to produce a images folder and a gameslist.txt. Where do the they go on the memory card, if I get this to work? I know I have to stop emulationstston. I just don't know where to put those 2 new items though when I get them

    @wggallagher They go exactly as the structure you created on your computer (that should be the same as on Recalbox). Next to the roms goes the gamelist.xml and the subdirectory downloaded_images.



  • @paradadf ok, the 2 items created go in the roms folder. OK, thank you very much.



  • @paradadf I redownloaded and same results. Guess im SOL, thanks for your help anyway.



  • Im getting "too many connections" error the first time I use the FastScrapper.
    I dont know what to do...... any suggest?
    Thanks!!

    I'd say you are having too many requests response XD
    That depends on the data source. Have you increased the workers? Probably your IP is doing too many requests in a short period of time and the API is blocking you, I don't know.

    Fastscraper ist just a sort-of interface for sselph's scraper. I don't know exactly what every error displayed by it means, sorry.



  • @paradadf

    It Only happens at night. At mid-day is perfect, so I suppose is a server limit for Ip range.


    Creo que hablas Español, asi que tambien te lo dejo escrito en español :P
    Creo que solo ocurre de noche, a medio dia funciona perfecto. creo que es una limitacion que esta aplicando el servidor a un rango de ips en concreto (yo estoy con movistar)



  • @paradadf
    I'm pretty NooB at this. How do I run commands from the RP3 in order to stop the emulation station before copying? I'm using a Windows PC.

    @pyrostic i strongly recommend you to read the wiki/manuals, as all the basic (and some advanced) festures and tricks are explained there.

  • Ok. I got the scraper to scrape my ROM files and create the xml file and images folder. When I put my SD card in and open the main folder, all I have is a boot folder of around 50 MB (of a 32 GB card) that doesn't show any of my ROM files to be able to place the images folder and xml file in there. When I put the SD card into my raspberry pi zero and load up Retropie, all my ROMS are on there and I'm able to play them, but it doesn't show any of the image files or game data if I put the folder and xml onto the boot area I'm getting when I plug it into my PC.

    What am I doing wrong? Are the ROMS on a separate partition, or something?

    @Keladir first of all, you are on the recalbox forum. for retropie specific stuff, you should use its forum.

    Now about your "issue"... Windows PCs can't read the extra partitions, so you need special software to access them. And as clear as I was on my instructions on the first post, you need to place both, gamelist.xml and downloaded_images folder next to your roms. So I just don't get why would you place it anywhere else. I doesn't make any sense.



  • @paradadf I opened it up on Retropie's file explorer to poke around, and when I imported my ROMS via USB thumb drive, it copied over the images folder and xml file into the same directory as all the roms, "next to" them as you say, yet they're still not showing up when I load into a console's game list.

    Your initial post doesn't say where on the SD card to transfer the XML and images folder to.

    @Keladir again, this is the recalbox forum, if you have problems transfering the files, make your question on the retropie forum.

    Your initial post doesn't say where on the SD card to transfer the XML and images folder to.

    Next to your roms is a unique location. Wherever the correct place were you copied your roms for retropie, that's the place! I don't know how retropie works, but my initial post also states that you must kill emulationstation before trying to edit/copy/transfer/touch the gamelist.xml. And that is valid for emulationstation in general.

    Sorry but either you don't want to understand, or you are not paying attention to what you read.

    @airart mamedb is down and thus, unscrapable. I've seen that sselph just added a mirror for it and enabled SS as source for mame as well. He just hasn't compiled and released a new version with all those changes yet so I can test and upgrade the batch.

    fastscraper has been upgraded and is fully functional again.
    New feature: you can open a folder browser and choose the roms folder of your recalbox directly over the network to scrape from it!
    I have set ScreenScraper as the only source because the quality is superior to any other. You can expand or modify it easily if you wish. Enjoy!



  • Hi,

    How do we download it on github ?

    I don't see any download link there.

    You can select RAW and copy the plain text to a txt file and rename the extension to .bat
