Robert de Clair Wrote:What for is selecting consoletype in launcher?
Actually to identify a game and use the scrappers the launcher addon needs two informations :
- the game name
- and the game platform (console type)
- as stand alone launcher (for stand alone application like PC games)
- or as roms launcher (by launching emulators for example)
For the "roms launcher" use, the launcher console type will automatically define the console type for all the roms managed by the launcher. So for the automatic scrapping with only the romname the scrapper will be able to found the right game (romname+consoletype) and download the right informations (data+covers+fanarts).
For the "stand-alone" use, if you use it for stand-alone games, the console type will have the same function as for the roms (scrapping the right game informations). Actually covers and fanarts scrapping are not availiable but I will soon add this options (I just have to define how I will select the default images). For other stand alone application (internet browser, etc...) the console type has no really goal or effect.
