Renaming ROM Files
Hey guys! I'm a bit of an organization freak and tend to rename files to keep things tidy. Will renaming, say, a Dreamcast ROM from "SOA_CD1_ECH.cdi" to "Skies of Arcadia (CD1).cdi" affect scraping? I'll be building my first RPi soon and am not familiar with how the scraper communicates with whatever source it grabs from.
Thanks in advance!

@5paceCat i think it should scrape easier changing it from the garbage name.
@5paceCat sselphs scraper doesn't use names, it uses hashes.
Great. Thanks for the info, guys!

@5paceCat I think you have to rename before the scraping process. Otherwise the
<path>entries of your gamelist.xml won't match the ROM filenames.
And, like said above, don't rename any arcade ROM files.
Gotcha. I'm renaming everything pre-install. I'm just getting all the files ready while the parts are shipping.
