Custom Sselph Scraper Script

Create game list file with custom videos & images

  • Since I have my own media, I just needed Sselph Scraper to create the RetroPie "gamelist.xml" and scrape metadata.
  • This will create the "gamelist.xml" for the configured system. You must configure the paths to your preferences, then add the images & video files to those paths. Names of all files must match.
