Update Game covers

Recommended Posts

Right now the GamesDB is down so we are basically stuck not being able to get any artwork at the moment unless you have an EmuMovies account and even then the only way to get anything is by using the Import metadata and Images features under Tools in the menu since if you try to do games individually and you try to search for Metadata you will get the GamesDB is down as a response.

That is inconvenient but until the other API's are finished (by outside sources) we are at the mercy of the GamesDB who are having issues with their hosts. I'm sure that it will be straightened out soon.

Hi @DudeManL57, a new official version is coming out later today that removes our reliance on TheGamesDB. Or, there's already a beta out as well. :)

I just downloaded 5.8 and then imported 16 DS games choose select none from the EmuMovies form I got 3 covers but in all fairness I don't remember the GDB giving good results when I imported all the games on my other machine either. But still getting the 3 covers proves that if the game has a match for the metadata you will get images in 5.8

I didn't check the Wikipedia check box so maybe that is the issue but it is working here on my side of things.

There may be errors that we get right now that cab be attributed to the database still building it's self. Jason is still downloading data so if a bunch of errors are still coming in tomorrow then we know something is up, but for now there's no way to know if there is a bug or it is from data still downloading.

I think Brad was asking what game console are your games for that are giving you the issue.

Yea I meant Console. Is it named Super Nintendo (SNES), or just SNES? What ever you've named it try the import with Super Nintendo (SNES).
