Hi Pendor! congrats for the scrapper, is really really usefull.
From yesterday i cheked every gamelist.xml, i find the problem diferent that ago a month (a update between?), sorry but i didn't saved any xml with garbadge at the finish, i prefered to fix them and enjoy the few artwork saved in the list.
But if example, now i only find a incomplete last line, something like this: (i cut at the half to don't make it too much longer to show...)

###... about 30 more roms listed right...
<desc>This is pure insanity. And to take the checkered flag, you'll need sheer intensity to throttle past hundreds of obstacles, including the Head Spinning Loop and the Sky Riding Ramp. You'll also need precision skills to refuel with Nitro Turbo Boosts that'll power you to victory! There are 8 championship tracks and 3 ultra-challenging levels (Rookie, World Class and Daredevil) to choose from. You can even race against the clock or computer. Or attach your Video Link and spit some mud in the face of a friend. So get down and dirty in an off-road rad race where speed and courage are the difference between popping wheelies and biting the dust.</desc>

Obviously, the problem (i think) is that some rom name character make es-scrapper exit, yes, it exits, don't follow with the next system listed on es_system.cfg. I never downloaded all the system in a row, my better results is one by one. The ironic is that i have most of the needed homework (excepting mame, i will ask something later).
---Near Full artbox of that systems:
-Game Boy Advance (Full)
-Master System 2 (Full)
-Nes (Full 95% accuracy of the full romser, awesome!)
-Snes (Matching names in 70%, the rest change names and artbox, I have U.N. Squadron 20 times listed)
---Systems with few available/found artbox:
-Atari 2600 (4/100)
-Game Boy Color(0/~200, but all the artwork is downloaded and mostly match)
-Pc-Engine (don't find anything)
-Mame: very few but awesome artwork (20/~200), many jewels to the sight, but i prefer to see the snapshots in mame, in my mame arcade cabinet i have all the snaps, i wish to use them on retroarch, i think that this not have to be too many dificult, and less if the mame roms and the snaps always match on names.
---Learned things watching es-scrapper running:
-It works in order of stored files or folders on the sd card or medium, not alphabetically. (This is why i don't know what kind of roms or names make the problem, i never know what would follows.)
-The first option of es-scrapper (in retropie setup) is supossed that skip the forced search and storing into the list of older roms, but not always work, and anothers makes a check and don't find nothing when a folder is full off roms and pictures, it answers with "no new games added".
-The second the same that the first but force a deep search and rewrite of the gamelist (and download all again).
-The third (for what i know) is a CRC based search from another database, this is form me the worst option, overwrite the existing .xml in some lines and changes many names and pics, with a very low accuracy, is the less used option for me.
-Es-scrapper hates the "#" character, and more i think.
Resuming, what i need is do a recheck of my folders and the existing stuff downloader before.
I found where is the es-scrapper.py (or something like this), but, how to run it in command mode? "sh" don't do nothing and i never executed something with python.
I hope that the info could help you!!!
From that sunday, when i updated retroarch, i didn't get to run with sound, retroarch returns "violación de segmento" (segment violation in english? hahaaha, sorry, I'm spanish, that explain my gramatical disasters). That remember me the Ms-Dos and Basic times huahuahua. If the sound is disable retroarch runs fine but like "Sato" said... the fullscreen don't works! (or better said, disable the enforce aspect).
If in my retroarch.cfg "audio_enable = false" works, why video_enforce_aspect = false" not?
All the problems came ago yesterday, after the update. All done on analog tv.
The same happened on sunday, but reinstalling the binaries fixed that, recompiling retroarch don't run with sound. I downloaded today the binaries but now i see that the binaries are the same that the compiled emu.
Edit: Checked, is not a systems core issue, compile them don't change nothing. Would be from retroarch.
Sorry, my english is awful, like me. XD
