Roms management





Another Gamelist, Roms manager, and Scraper for Recalbox, Batocera, Retropie, Retrobat, EmulationStation

Welcome to the ARRM software wiki


For some time, I use Recalbox and Batocera. These frontends, usable on raspberry or pc / linux allow to run emulators of old console, as well as the very good media center Kodi. Wishing to change the descriptions of games roms, add them to favorites or hide them in a simple way and incidentally to scrap some roms on ScreenScraper, MameDb and theGamesDb, I wrote this little utility ARRM (Another Recalbox Roms Manager) for my personal use . Over the versions, many other features have been added, often at the request of users. I make it available if it can be useful to you. All input areas and buttons have their Bubble Info to know their function. This software is also compatible with Recalbox, Batocera, Retropie, EmulationStation and probably Retrobat too.

Scrap your games for Recalbox, Batocera, Retropie, EmulationStation and Retrobat with ARRM. Manage your gamelists and organize your Roms


ARRM does not offer gaming ROMs, nor does it allow them to be downloaded; he uses the Roms you own. Image and informations recovery is done on the following sites: Screenscraper, TheGamesDb and The MameDb


A big thank you to these three sites for their database dedicated to video games. Do not hesitate to encourage them.

Try the JVB Quiz game: http://jujuvincebros.fr/telechargements2/category/13-games

I wrote a little game: JVB_Quiz which offers a quiz based on the media / gamelist available with your Recalbox/Batocera/Retropie/Retrobat installations ….

For those who do not have these frontends, I offer ready-to-use media packs per system (without roms), on the download (All media scraped with ARRM)

It uses the gamelist.xml to display videos and / or images (image, marquee, boxart, screenshot etc … available in gamelists) as well as text questions (over 800) in French or English as desired. On the images, a kaleidoscope effect gradually reveals the image. You can mix image and video in the quiz.

It works under Windows or on Wine or Pygame under Batocera PC.

You can play up to 6 players (4 joypads and 2 keyboards)
