    Hello fellow Petrockblockers! Everything is working smooth on my Raspberry Pi, even with the SNES controllers. A lot of this is due to the fact that you guys helped me a lot with setting it up, and especially tweaking it.

    Of course, a real tweaker is never finished with something. The last time I ran ES_scraper, it renamed a lot of my games to whatever was close to it. I have a lot of ‘fake’ Pokémon ROMS, and they basically get scrambled whenever I run ES_Scraper.

    Now my question, is there a program for Windows to create a ‘gamelist.xml’ file by dragging in pictures, typing descriptions and titles myself? I don’t want to code the gamelist.xml myself, because that gets quite messy.

    Thanks in advance, Roy`.

    Hi, try running ES Scraper manually:

    cd /home/pi/RetroPie/supplementary/ES-scraper
    sudo python scraper.py -w 300 -m

    where -w is the boxart width, adjust to your liking but under 400 is recommended. Hope this helps!

    If you have found the solution to your problem please mark the topic as resolved.

    What do you recommend as a boxart width? And actually, I was looking for a program to do it all manually, so also the description etc. But I’ll look into the manual mode.

    I use -w 300. Manual mode is useful to double check the matches ES scraper finds, obviously it will take a lot longer if you have a lot of roms. Editing the gamelist.xml is pretty easy, use a program like Notepad ++ on Windows or edit with Linux built in text editor Nano, e.g.

    nano home/pi/RetroPie/roms/megadrive/gamelist.xml
