Amiga CD32 and Amiga NTSC Games on Skyscraper



  • I've noticed that Skyscraper skips scraping WHDLoad .LHA games that have CD32 or NTSC extensions to their filenames. It recognises them because it will put CD32 and NTSC in parenthesis if it is set to recognise them but It does not scrape them.

    It also ignores CDTV and CDTV games running from .CUE files. This may be a slightly different issue because of the complexity and variety of the files involved.

    Can anyone advise?



  • Is there any way to get Skyscraper to ignore part of a filename (CD32 and NTSC) when scraping without changing the filenames?



  • @George-Spiggott
    No, but you can use the batch files renamer "Advanced Renamer" to change the names of your files and rename them afterwards.
    You can also use Universal-XML-Scraper-2.2.0.3. It uses the Screenscrapper database. Maybe you will have more success.

    Quick question, when you uncompress a .lha file, is It an .Iso with a .cue or something else, because I never had success with .lha (.iso/cue/wav). For me, .lha only worked with disk images files or big data folders inside the .lha.

    With .lha (.iso and .cue inside) Amiberry WHD loader say "No file to load" and when It's uncompressed, everything is fine. Am I forgetting something?

    If only Amiberry could read .chd files....



  • Hi, thanks. I actually got some help from @muldjord to fix this issue. I'll try to find the thread and link it to here.

    [edit]
    Here it is. I managed to scrape almost all my troublesome roms using the method @mitu and @muldjord show in this thread.

    I don't use mu .LHA files uncompressed as that is the format WHDLoad uses them in. I only use .CUE when I need CD gamers with the audio.
