Arc Browser Boxart Scraper
« on: August 01, 2018, 06:21:46 pm »
I have Arc Browser for my GPD XD and recently i had deleted all the systems from the list
and then re-added them and now the scraper won't load ANY of the boxart from the scraper
database of "TheGamesDB" and when i go to add the boxart it just gives me an error saying
"An Unknown error occurred during scraping" and i know about changing the database but
some of the boxart from the other databases it loads is incorrect and i don't exactly want
to manually change ALOT of the art so i was wondering if there was a fix for the "TheGamesDB"
database or if there was something wrong with the "TheGamesDB" database? the version of Arc Browser is 1.16.4

TheGamesDB is super slow because a lot of different scrappers download from it. Go into the settings and change the scrapper to TheGamesDB backup. I forgot the full name off the top of my head but it should have gamesDB backup in brackets. Basically the Arc Browser developer just took the entire gamesDB database and copied it over to his own server. Scrapping is much faster as I can't see more than 10 people pinging the server at one time. It also shouldn't give you any errors.

the one you're talking about in the settings is it the "TheGamesDB" database called "Arcturus (TheGamesDB cache)"?
is that the one i should switch to any use?

Yup use Arcturus (TheGamesDB cache) instead.
