    Anyone have any filled databases for this FE? I recently started playing with it, linked to RL, and I'm kind of barren in terms of DBs. Or has anyone written a tool to convert RL/HS DBs to AM format?

    I may have written something to convert them back when I was messing with Attract Mode before I settled on a different frontend, I'll have to check.

    Ok great. I have the internal scraper working alongside RL system naming. But it leaves a db with just rom names and nothing else. Also can't scrape pc-game style systems.

    djvj, seems you can already convert HS databases to AM ones, looking at their docs:

    You can also import romlists from mame listxml files as well as gamelists for
    other frontends. Supported source files include: *.lst (MameWah lists), *.txt
    (Attract-Mode lists) and *.xml (Mame listxml, listsoftware and HyperSpin lists):
    attract --import-romlist <source_file> [emulator name]

    Lol yea another buddy told me about that. This works great:

    attract.exe --import-romlist "D:\RocketLauncher\RocketLauncherUI\Databases\Supe r Nintendo Entertainment System\Super Nintendo Entertainment System.xml" "Super Nintendo Entertainment System"

    That can be easily looped in AHK to convert an entire set of RLUI DBs to AM format.

    Well that's good because I just checked and it looks like I got rid of my script when I trashed all my HyperSpin related scripts a while back.

    So there's not only one but two of you that don't bother reading the docs.

    You're right (modern) men watch YouTube videos of some "expert" explaining you how to do it. A 1 hour video is much better than a 5 minutes read
