    Hi,

    after a run of es-scrapper (fresh install of retropie SD Image), some games have only a picture on the left, which is too big and doesn’t fit in and some games have a description under a white box (I suppose this is the place for the image).
    I followed the wiki instructions [1], but without success. I also tried
    python scraper.py -w 10 -m -f -v. Same result, but I see an Image resize error
    Python Imaging Package is installed:
    ii python-imaging 1.1.7-4

    Have someone an idea or can reproduce this error? Maybe the incorrect presenation have something todo with my TV? I have a Samsung HDTV and my resolution is 1920×1080.

    Thx in advance.

    Oh sorry, the first time I didn’t recognize this Post [1]. It’s the same problem.

    For the sake of completeness (already wrote that in the other post above):

    Riddle solved. There was a change [1] on Nov 20, 2013:
    Import PIL instead of just the Image class since it doesn’t resolve on all platforms.

    
    -import os, imghdr, urllib, urllib2, sys, Image, argparse, zlib, unicodedata, re
    +import os, imghdr, urllib, urllib2, sys, PIL, argparse, zlib, unicodedata, re
    

    Change PIL to Image in scraper.py [2] and resize works again.

    This info is available elsewhere on the forum but, after changing the script to Image from PIL, you must re-run the script manually, and with a forced refresh.

    sudo /home/pi/Retropie/supplementary/ES-scraper/scraper.py -w 275 -m -f
