Install more scrapers/servers to use in Emulation station



  • Uo to now we have only one scraper in emulationstation, that uses gamesdb server; it is possible to add more scraper and/or servers to have more sources for scraping roms? Until now the only alternative is Stephen Selp scraper but it works only with emulationstation closed, that is somewhat uncomfortable :) please mind to share alternatives, if there any?

    @niculinux There are other scrapers - Skyscraper, Universal XML Scraper, Skraper - using various sources for art/video/images. Look them up and see which one fits you better. Bsides the internal scraper, all of them will require stopping/restarting Emulationstation.



  • @mitu thanks, but i think i'll stick with gamesdb. The systems supported by the scraper provided with emulationstaion in retropieare listed in its GitHub page.

    An alternative may be Skraper; it's avaiable for Windows and linux, but it's still an alpha and for the latter it is required WINE.
