    Is there a way to change the default scraper to pull screenshots of the games instead of the box shots?

    Thanks. I’m checking it out. I just can’t believe that most people would rather have box shots over an actual screenshot.

    If you are using my scraper you can use the flags -gdb_img or -mame_img depending on what you are scraping

    -gdb_img is for console games and defaults to just boxart but you can change to “s,b” to use the screenshot then fall back to boxart if there isn’t a screenshot

    -mame_img is for mame and already defaults to the screenshot first.

    you can use -help to see the other options
