Scraping & Windows curl problem
« on: August 20, 2019, 09:34:43 AM »
Hello,

I don't know what is the state of scraping in the current git tree but I noticed that libcurl may not work under windows.
I had a SSL verification problem that might be quite windows specific.
That simply prevented every curl http request to work.

Just a suggestion, but you could add that line in fe_net.cpp near line 111 (at least for Windows platforms) :
   curl_easy_setopt( curl_handle, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0 );

That allowed me to at least run the scraping phase succesfully, even if results are not that good (particularly with thegamesdb) on TurboGrafx16 stuff :)

Regards
