Recover gamelist.xml after ARRM crash
You are scraping, and ARRM crashes. Rest assured, what you've already scraped isn't lost. ARRM has a data recovery system when an application crash occurs.
In this case, you must use recovery via the ARRM cache.
See: How to use the ARRM cache
To activate this feature, check the Temporary Gamelist checkbox in the Gamelist Options tab (see screen below)
- Temporary gamelist (checkbox): A gamelist_tempo.xml file is created during the progress of the scrape in the scraped system directory. Thus during a crash of the application it is possible to recover the information of this file during the next loading of the system. This gamelist_tempo.xml file is located in the same directory as your gamelist.xml.
After a crash, restart ARRM, and reload the system you were scraping at the time of the crash.
When loading a system, if ARRM detects that a crash has occurred, it offers to restore the information recovered up to the time of the crash.
This popup appears:
Click the OK button
ARRM will take care of merging the data scraped before the crash with your old gamelist.xml
