Scrap in french / other languages

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I found old topic (2016) about this but no answer.

Is it possible to scrap games in french ? I tried with Launchbox and Scraper, the descriptions still in english.

Thanks.

The Launchbox database is English only.

Not from our database no, if its from another program you would have to ask on there forums, we only officially support our database and Emumovies for media.

I understand but when we scrap with Skraper for Recalbox, it's all in french.

When I made the same operation with the Launchbox directory, Launchbox keep the english.
I'm sure the problem is Launchbox.

We have support for the paid licence right ?

As i said Launchbox only supports metadata in English. I doesnt matter what Recalbox does, Launchbox isnt Recalbox.

Ok.

It's not Recalbox who's scraping but the software called Skraper. Who scraps in french and is compatible with Launchbox.

I understand that you don't provide support. (Not cool, I've been touting your software for years on my youtube channel and on my facebook page.)

We are in a forum, can the community help for this ? Or have some tips about this ?

Without your support.

Skraper scrapes data from https://www.screenscraper.fr/, which supports more than one language for game overviews. Launchbox scrapes data from https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/, which supports only one language, English.
