sorry for not making it clear, i was hoping to have LB replace RL as a launcher only, not FE, so no media is needed.
all i need is for LB to know where every rom is and how to launch it with an emulator. (i know it doesn't have all the features RL has)
i don't want to use the built in scraper because i need it to use the same naming convention and i already have all the romlists files set up in my FE (Attract-Mode) and they also hold the game stats.
and also sometimes i switch between frontends.
so really what im looking for is some way to convert my list of games (either hyperspin style xml or AM romlist) to the LB xml format without using the scraper.
i can write a script that will do that but the biggest problem that comes to mind is that LB doesn't separate the file extension from the file path,
that might be a problem if you have multiple extensions on the same platform.
