Skyscraper Not scraping some folders for Amiga games

I am having a current issue with Skyscraper 3.2.8 scraping amiga games.
I am using Retropie 4.4.14
I have current amiga games in folders in alphabetical order eg A B C D E etc
I run skyscraper and it appears to detect all the files and starts scraping ok.
When it is finished it appears to have missed whole folders eg it will scrape A folder and B but not C folder.
I performed a test where i moved all C file to a separate folder called amiga under C.
I edited the input folder in config.ini and ran skyscraper.
It then detected the C files and ran ok.
My question is can I scrape a single folder without having to create an amiga folder under it?
So can I specify the exact folder to scrape.
Also has anyone come across this issue.
Hm, looks more like a throttling issue - the scraping is somehow interrupted by the source site somewhere and the rest of the games are not scraped.
What happens if you re-run the scraper ? Are you using the
--refreshoption all the time ? this would make Skyscraper re-scrape your already scraped games, ignoring its cached data.
@mitu Hi I have not tried the --refresh option.
Do you know if this is available in the config.ini? I am running skyscraper through retropie through the UI.
I am currently doing a full scrape again and will try this option after this completes.
@Jimi007 Actually I'm suggesting to not use this option, since it makes Skyscraper re-scrape already scraped games. What source of scraping are you using ?
@mitu I am using Screenscraper as the source and have an account.
I heard open retro database is good for amiga games but I prefer the images in screenscraper.
Could be a throttling issue. I have decided to move the amiga games one folder at a time into the roms folder.
So I will scrape all games beginning with A in the roms folder.
I'll then do the same with B etc and create a number of gamelist.xmls
I'l then do a merge of the gamelist.xmls and edit it to point to the correct folders.
A bit of work but it should hopefully do the trick rather than scraping all at once in different folders.
