Another Gamelist, Roms manager, and Scraper for Recalbox, Batocera, Retropie

Welcome to the ARRM software wiki

Writing of the WIKI in progress


For some time, I use Recalbox and Batocera. These frontends, usable on raspberry or pc / linux allow to run emulators of old console, as well as the very good media center Kodi. Wishing to change the descriptions of games roms, add them to favorites or hide them in a simple way and incidentally to scrap some roms on ScreenScraper, MameDb and theGamesDb, I wrote this little utility ARRM (Another Recalbox Roms Manager) for my personal use . Over the versions, many other features have been added, often at the request of users. I make it available if it can be useful to you. All input areas and buttons have their Bubble Info to know their function. This software is also compatible with Recalbox, Batocera, Retropie and EmulationStation.


ARRM does not offer gaming ROMs, nor does it allow them to be downloaded; he uses the Roms you own. Image and informations recovery is done on the following sites: Screenscraper, TheGamesDb and The MameDb
