I have just finished the scrapping (7000 roms more or less) but there are still like 400 games than dont have an image, or description or videosnap.
Is there anyway to add description, image and video in a easy way? I mean, something like viewing the game list from my laptop and searching text,images and video on google.
Thanks in advance
@carcayu For your purpose, I think Webtropie might be a good choice. The topic opened here is https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/10164/webtropie, where you can see how it works and what is capable of.
Thanks a lot mitu. The thing is I used that tool like 4 o 5 months ago, but I couldnt find the way to load it in the browser. I mean, it didnt load the list, etc.
I will check it out again, maybe it is fixed. Thanks a lot!

@carcayu I‘d suggest to rather add the missing data/media to a database like www.screenscraper.fr so that those games become scrapable and you take care of it one time and ready to use everytime. Currently my favorite scraper is www.skraper.net and it gives you many layout options, but pretty much any scraper has access to screenscraper‘s database.
Thanks paradadf, I think it is a very good idea, since it would help me and also It would be good for the community. Thanks!
@carcayu I just remembered another interface to manage the gamelists - ARRM. It seems to be created and tested on Recalbox, but supports Emulationstation. Looks .. different, but looking at the presentation video is just what you need.
Thanks a lot mitu, it sounds pretty interesting, I will investigate it.
By the way, paradadf, I have just try skraper and It detects a lot more roms! It's incredible (and very easy to use, using the windows program). Maybe I will have to manually scrapping only few roms. Thanks a lot!
