Thanks for the update.
What do you mean exactly with "Attract-Mode is now looking for game overview information in a different place then previously" , I have tons of overview scrapped descriptions and I prefer to move them to another place than re-scrape all the stuff.
Which is the new location?

Here is the description of where the overviews are now stored:

hope that helps!

Thanks I have converted the "old ones" to the new "format".
Should be easy to make a python script if anyone wants to help.
I have used the find and replace feature of notepad ++ , just deleting the first "Overview " word at the begining and "n/n/"
Then just changing the .cfg extension for .txt with flexible renamer.
