    Here is a scraping tool used to pull meta-data using hash files against the rom set you have.

    It can also be targetted against existing artwork you have for other frontends or scrap lower quality media from gamedb.

    The readme on github states it is developed for use by emulationstation. Can the script benefit others like hyperspin?

    The script was written for EmulationStation but there are 2 parts to it. The first hashes and downloads metadata/images the second is writing the XML for ES. If there were another front end that used similar metadata and allowed you to automatically import that type of data you could adapt the script or write something to convert from the XML to the other front end.
