Great Add-on!

Having 2 issues (related?). I apologize if my issues have been addressed in this thread and I have some how missed them Big Grin.

PROBLEM 1

During online scrape I recieve a "CANNOT CREATE ARTWORK" error, i have determined that RCB is having trouble creating the "CARTRIDGE" art. When I browse to my artwork folder the "boxback" "boxfront" "fanart" & "screenshot" folders have images correctly named. The "cartridge" folder contains images (.jpg) for my collection properly named, but apear to be blank (no thumbnail ) and when I try to open one using windows image viewer I get a "Windows Photo Viewer can't display this picture because the file is empty" message.

PROBLEM 2

After initial setup and online scrape, only 2 or 3 games in my collection display info or artwork. When I reset RCB 22 or 3 different games will display info and artwork. It seems to successfully scrape, all the nfo files are intact and it pulls all the artwork successfully, but I can't get RCB to display info and artwork for all my games at once*.

SYSTEM VERSIONS

Windows 8.1
Kodi 14.2 Helix
RCB 2.1.2

Thanks for the link.

I did come across this before when I was looking for solutions. This seems to be a way to supress the error message, but doesn't really fix the problem...

Does anyone have any info on how to generate a MAME.txt file for a current mame rom set (eg 0.161) for use with RCB's offline scaper?

I use PGP, create a config for my emulator and map a button to a batch file that stops the service. Best way I found to exit from a controller...

Has anyone updated the mobygames scraper? Or does anyone know how to do it easily? The sites still running and it's by far the best source for Artwork because they 9 times out of 10 have front, back and cartridge/disk images its great but the scraper fails every time. It sucks because the only scrapers that work dont't work half as well as it use to.

I ran into this same problem, recently snex9x (snes9x_testbuild_24052015) added the ability to map a button to close the emulator, otherwise, I use joytokey and map buttons to alt and f4, down side is the buttons you map to keys now function as both the buttons and the keys, some experimentation in the emulators will show how this can be a minor annoyance, but if you have buttons to spare then it makes no difference, Ultimately id like to be able to use the home button to bring up a close application option in the xbox center thing.

I use xpadder for this. Mapped a combination of two buttons for ALT+F4. Works perfect
