    Default tool for collecting rom information wanted

    Hello folks,

    first post here....

    I am looking for a tool that searches the web for information / screenshots about emulated games.

    The goal is to get information that displays nicely in an open source HTPC application (called MediaPortal btw, http://mediaportal.sourceforge.net ).

    Tools I've used so far:

    * myGames (http://www.getmygames.com )
    * Game Collectorz (http://www.collectorz.com/game/ )

    both are ok but both have disadvantages (too buggy / too expensive).

    Does anybody know about similar tools that could be alternatives?

    Cheers,

    Daniel

    btw: to get an idea how this looks like:

    What part of myGames were you having difficulty with?

    Maybe I can help.

    Try google, google images might even have some screen shots if you search for them.

    Isn't it easier to use a mutiple emulator frontend, such as GameBase or MAMEwah?

    sorry this steers a little off-topic but do those programs auto search the info or do you have to manually do it. i spent five hours one saturday just getting pics of the cartridges of my games.
    My home arcade project is offically underway!

    keep posted on it!!!
