I understand that scrapped information for games is stored in the gamelist.xml file which are in turn stored in each directory per emulator. What I don’t understand is where is this information stored when you first do a scrape.
I have just scraped some info in scummvm for just 6 titles. Looking in emulation station all the info is showing the descriptions and cover art etc but if I look in the gamelist.xml file it is just showing 3 previous scrapes not the new ones even though as said ES shows the info so where is ES reading this data from?
As soon as I reboot I loose all the scraped info because obvioulsy it hasn’t been wrote to the gamelist.xml file which is most annoying.
If I manually add entries to this file they work fine.
ps this isn’t the issue mentioned by many with reference to the missing <gameList> tag.
I have just done a test now and cleared out all the entries, rebooted the pi and sure enough ScummVM is now showing nothing. I have just done a scrape on the file queen and all the info is showing for Flight of the Amazon Queen, showing developer information, description etc but if I look at the gamelist.xml file in the scummvm folder this file just shows
and not the scraped information, any help would be greatly appreciated.
