Best metadata editor



  • Hi all, I'm just wondering what people are using nowadays as their metadata editor. I use RetropieMetadataEditor (https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/4152/retropie-metadata-editor/172) I really like how this package works, but is appears to have been abandoned and not all systems are supported. Are there any other packages out there that compete with this?

    Cheers

    @evert Try Webtropie, a web interface to RetroPie that you can use from your PC.



  • Depending on your file extension of your games, you can trick the metadata editor you've mentioned to support more systems. Just make a copy of the folder you want to edit and rename it to a supported system. But like I said, you might have to change your extensions firsts and do a search/replace in the gamelist.xml afterwards to change it back to the default extension. I've done that before for amiga and scummvm games.

    Although I have to agree with @mitu that Webtropie is pretty neat and I've used that after I completely rescraped my games to fix small things.



  • @mitu , thanks mate, exactly what I was looking for.
