Had a hard time finding an answer to my question in the forums. When using the Advanced Emulator Launcher and after entering in the name of the launcher, the name is too long and is cut off using the Thumb view. Has anyone else experienced this or point me in the right direction?

Example:

"Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands" only shows "Prince of Persia: The Forgotten"
(see screenshot in link)

What skin are you using? I think that is a skin problem rather than an AEL problem. If you use Estuary AEL MOD skin does it work correctly?

Wintermute0110,

Thank you for this awesome software, it works great. I have all my launchers setup except for the Wii. For some reason, only the Wii launcher won't scan in. I have permission and the file extensions set up right (no random spaces or anything). Any recommendations on my issue? I posted the error log below. Thank you for your help!! FYI I have tried the 9.6, 9.6 beta and github development versions.

Hi,

The problem is because one or several of the ROM names in the Wii launcher has non-ascii characters. Currently AEL in Github is very unstable cos I am adding new features. Fix is easy but it's going to take some time. In the mean time you can locate Wii ROMs with non-ascii characters and rename them.

WOW THANK YOU. After looking up what non-ascii characters were, I was able to find the offending file in minutes! Everything works great now! Thanks again!

Hi,

Well thanks for answers!!

I still have that problem :

Code:

                                            -->End of Python script error report<--

It is not when using "Rescan from local" but when adding news roms. I chose to use the scrapper Mobygames, solution by "loktar" using Arcadedb gaves no errors, but scrapper is..... empty..
My experience with AEL shows that only MobyGames works well as an internet scrapper.... but not efficient due to that error!

Woud be very plesant that you solve it Smile))
