    I have one question: I have the newest Emulation Station Version installed . There is indeed for the Games a great Scraper , this also has all consoles work , only the Megadrive he finds unfortunately nothing . Can you gave me a tip? You can make 2 settings , one of thegamesdb and thearchive . In thegamesdb he has in all other consoles something found only in non Megadrive . When I select thearchive , it needs always very long and he finds nothing. In Linux window says the then still he can not connect to the server . I come from Germany, it is perhaps because there is a difference between the Mega Drive and Genesis ? I looked on the website of thegamesdb there the games are available by name but under the heading Genesis .
    It would be nice if you could give me a hint how I could scrape my Megadrive games?

    Thank You and sorry for my englisch.

    Change the platform in your es_systems.cfg on the megadrive to Genesis. Megadrive was depreciated from thegamesdb.

    See sselphs scraper as well as it runs faster:
