am crash while generating snes games list?
« on: May 03, 2018, 07:44:41 AM »
hi everyone,
I'm using AM 2.3 with groovymame 0.194 and dosbox on my cab, no problem at all... but now I'd like to add a snes emuator (snes9x) and about 900 roms; AM hangs during list generation at about 75%, then crash. list is empty of course...if trying with only 10-20 roms it works perfectly. also no problem under mame with over 3.000 roms...
there where another thread regarding this problem but it should be fixed in am 2.3...
any ideas?
thanks

On lastests versions I have similar issues , so I always add a "#" to the executable path before to create my romlists.
Remember to make a copy of your emulator.cfg

 this is the end of last_run log file:

Code: [Select]
*** Generating Collection/Rom List: snes9x
 - Found 948 files.
 - scraping thegamesdb.net...
 ! Error processing request. Status code: 524 (api/GetGame.php?name=BreakThru%21&platform=Super%20Nintendo%20%28SNES%29)
the error seems related to gamesdb.net, so I disconnecetd pc from internet then generated list another time, I got an error but now the list is present.... and was generate in few seconds (before it took over 40min. before crashing). also I noticed lots of .cfg file with some general information on games, the file stops when am crash (so only 75% of games have these files).

I should adding a # before snes9x.exe in .cfg? weird thing.... how it works?
thanks a lot!!
