scrape Neo-Geo box art with sselph-scraper?

  • it would be would preferable to have the AES box art covers instead of title snaps.

    the roms are from the FB Alpha reference set, and have shortened filenames (,,, etc). i placed them in the roms/neogeo folder. thegamesdb metadata being scraped is spotty, but i can do some manual cleanup of gamelist.xml

    is there a setting i could edit or bit i could flip somewhere to scrape the box art for these badboys?

    there is a closed issue referencing this here:

  • There isn't a way to do it from the RetroPie-setup menu. I don't know how to make an ordered list with the dialog program used to generate the RetroPie-setup menus. I'll try and give you some instructions here to make this work on a command line. Exit EmulationStation and get to a command line.

    cd ~/RetroPie/roms/neogeo
    /opt/retropie/supplementary/scraper/scraper -mame -mame_img="b" -mame_src="gdb,ss"

    This will scrape thegamesdb then fall back to you can swap those around if you prefer ss.

  • alright, that did the trick. thank you sselph, i appreciate your help.
