    Hi all,

    I made some changes to the scaper.py including an algorithm to auto choose the best result for each game.

    Changelog:

    Now included in the latest git
    Checks for neogeo games in mamedb
    Auto chooses the best match for each game (based on a SequenceMatcher)
    Image resize works again

    PS: use -fix option for best results

    DOWNLOAD the latest file – scraper2.rar
