Can any Console or Handheld Title Rom Name be used while scraping?


Recommended Posts

Can LaunchBox detect and name any Console or Handheld Roms correctly when scraping for Box Art, Sound, Etc. Via EMU Movies?

Or would I have to manually type in the correct names for the Roms so EMU Movies recognizes them while LaunchBox is scraping them?



What type of Roms or Rom Sets are highly recommended to use with LaunchBox?

Most roms sets are done via groups (no-intro, good, etc.)  They all use naming convention standards that LB games DB and EmuMovies should recognize.  I believe more support exists for the no-intro naming standards which are pretty simple "game title (region).ext" ... example Super Mario World (USA).sfc.  If your roms are at least close to that naming convention then it should work for most scrappers.  Note: Arcade/Mame is a different beast altogether.... Those files are in zip format and do not use this sort of naming convention, don't rename those as they will not work properly in Mame if you rename them.

As for rom sets, like I mentioned above most scraping sites support No-Intro or Good naming conventions (I believe).  Personally I prefer the no-intro sets as they are cleaner and only contain one version of each game, whereas the Good rips typically contain several variations, hacks, etc.


Hope this helps,
