RetroPie Scraper

Post by piter005 »

Hi. Not sure I need an API but I would like to scrape a retropie collection of games. I used emulationstation but it seems to sometimes work and sometimes not. Was trying to use a retropie scraper or skyscraper (without emulation station being on) and I cannot do that. I would like to especially scrapes creenshots and video. Do I need API for this? How can I use it?

Hello.

You don't need API key to use scrapers as user. Devs should implement it into their apps. As far as I know Skyscraper dev has already requested a key.
