Scrape single game?
I have been scraping some systems using
retropie-setupscript. However, for some systems, it does not seem to work (or it is too slow), specially those with large roms (PSX, PSP and Dreamcast).
In the past, the build-in scraper in emulationstation worked for scraping single games, but it does not seem to work anymore. Is there an alternative to scrape single games? There is not a lot of them, and I mostly ripped the ISOS myself, so I don't think searching for hash match would work. Ideally, it would use the filename (or I would enter it manually) to retrieve the information from a database.

I would also love to scrape a single game, which is why I stopped using the ScreenScraper program because it wanted to do whole systems when I just wanted to add in a few games. The way I do it now is I select the ES scraper and I deselect all the systems except for the one that has new games and it will only hit the new games.
I found out that the built-in scraper can be configured to use ScreenScraper.fr (it's in the main menu), and then it finds the description and the cover for the selected game. Although I have not figured out if it's possible to get the video preview that way. But at least it's something.

The EmulationStation scraper doesn't support videos.
@mitu Oh, ok. Thanks.
I hope in the future it will be more flexible. It's convenient to have a scraper that can be used directly from the GUI.
