Hi @garbear 

dunno how far along you guys are on the scraper for roms but i wanted to bring up a great place to scrape for roms
https://www.screenscraper.fr/index.php?a...ateforme=0

They got an webapi that really usable along with images for the games etc.

the most popular standalone scrapers out there use that api when scraping for game info.

just wanted to bring it to your attention, Keep up the good work Smile
Thanks for the resource!!! Scraping is on the radar, my free time is limited these days but every once in a while I get a weekend to work on RetroPlayer. I've started implementing a JSON-LD based game library, but it's a long way from being ready.

Awesome glad to help Smile

there is a cli for linux on github but it bases of QT in C++ but i think a better solution is making a scraper in python like the rest of the scrapers for kodi

We have a python engine created for GSoC '12 that does forward-chaining inference to obtain file metadata: https://github.com/topfs2/heimdall . I would be simple to write a ScreenScraper rule. One of the many things I hope to get to someday...
