My system names are different, how to scrape ?

I use names of systems (directory) different from those proposed by Recalbox/Batocera/Retropie and the scraper recovers the images of the game but from another console. How to fix it ?

By default, ARRM associates system names (directories) with their equivalent on Screenscraper (or TheGamesDB). This association is done via the file 'systemes_screenscraper.txt' (for screenscraper) which is in %appdata%\nexouille soft\arrm\database\systemes_screenscraper.txt

Access to this file can be done via the icon to the right of the 'screenscraper' button

Take as an example the Master System, by default the name of the roms directory for the Master System is 'mastersystem' for Recalbox/Batocera and Retropie. If your Master System directory is named for example 'sega master system' you will have to add a line in the file 'systemes_screenscraper.txt':

sega master system|2

which will give in the file 'systemes_screenscraper.txt'

...
mastersystem|2
sega master system|2
nes|3
family_computer|3
snes|4
...

In order to associate the correct extensions to this new system, you will also have to modify the extensions file: systemes_extensions.txt located in %appdata%\nexouille soft\arrm\database\systemes_extensions.txt

Access to this file can be done via the button 'Edit extensions' in the 'Main Options' tab.

Example with this modified file:

...
sega32x|.32x;.smd;.bin;.zip;.md;.7z
segacd|.cue;.iso;.chd;.bin
sega master system|.sms;.zip;.bin;.7z
sg1000|.sg;.zip;.bin;.7z
sg-1000|.sg;.zip;.bin;.7z
...

If you want to fine tune, you can also adapt the logo of the system that appears in ARRM, by copying the file 'mastersystem.png' in 'sega master system.png' which is in the directory of installation of the application in the sub-directory 'logos'

When editing these files, consider restarting the application for consideration.
