WahCade and XBMC Screen Scraping

Postby Zombie » Sun May 04, 2014 10:08 pm

XBMC has a Python module that scrapes Artwork, Screenshots and Backstory from places like mobygames. Is it possible to adapt that module to do the same thing in MahCade?

I'm sure its possible, although I didn't get it working when i looked at it a while back.

It is on the list, happy enough for someone else to look at this functionality tho.

I started writing this: https://github.com/sairuk/thegamesdb-python with the aim to add that functoniality eventually to Mah!Cade but haven't gone back to it in sometime
