Where is the games's metadata stored?


Recommended Posts

In HyperSpin and EmulationStation all the metadata is stored in system-specific XML files. How does LaunchBox store metadata? I've found Metadata.xml that contains a lot of data, but when I edit a game's description it's added to LaunchBox.xml. Anyone who could explain how the metadata is structured?

I've developed my own scraper which I think is superior to most built-in ones. It scrapes all kind of data from multiple sources and while LaunchBox's scraper isn't bad, it's still missing a lot of info. Would love to add support for LaunchBox before releasing the first public version. :)
