  1. Okay, thanks, I must have missed the DatabaseId -> GameImage association at the bottom of the XML, but I see it now. Thanks again for your help!
  2. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be a public way to access LaunchBox's game image database, although it is used extensively in the website and Windows/Android app. There is no API for LaunchBox, but the Games Database can be downloaded daily from https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/Metadata.zip, and contains a lot of game metadata, but no mention of images. In addition, the id given when using the information from the Metadata.zip does not match the id in the URL of images. For example, Crash Team Racing has a DatabaseID of 1007 but the URL for the page itself and thus the images uses the number 977 (https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/977), two totally different game identifiers. This appears to have been mentioned online already, although briefly (https://github.com/muldjord/skyscraper/issues/132#issuecomment-474824962). The only other reference to someone actually getting images is through the BigBox plugin using the installed app, which is not what I'm looking for (https://github.com/fpdavis/MarquesasServer).
