Stuck on Downloading


Recommended Posts

Currently downloading images on my system. All of the metadata went through perfectly, but have been stuck on downloading the first file for a few hours now. The entire download is pretty huge (1 of 689190), but wanted to know if this is expected behavior before I tried to wait it out. I am able to download image files for games individually, including for the title it is stuck on. Thanks for any help!

We've seen this happen if you have a large number of EmuMovies downloads. The way EmuMovie API works is if there is ever a 5 minute window where we don't download from them after asking for a media URL all the URLS go bad and we have to ask for new ones. Tryin to do so on a queue as large of yours is extremely difficult and time consuming, and if we DO get responses it typically takes longer than that 5m window allows and you get stuck in an infinite loop. For now what I would suggest doing is downloading all the media you need from LaunchBox's Games Database then once that queue is done downloading, use EmuMovies to fill in any gaps. This should help.
