    Hello,

    What is the best way to scrape spectrum games? I usually use Sselph, but is yet to be supported. I tried the built in scraper using the gamesdb source and the other one and nothing is returned.

    I did also try an rename the. Z80 files so they were clean and stripped off the garbage at the end without success. I noticed a video Floob recently did showed his scrapped and it look great.

    Thanks

    I use the built in ES one – although it doesnt have a great coverage. Gets quite a few though.

    I tried that too Floob, strange as I had the same game or 2 as you and yours has artwork and mine does, is it the naming convention or file format?

    When you scrape you can retype the name of the game if it doesnt find it first time, I tend to do that.
