XBMC Forum thread:

XBMCNerds thread (german forum):


Game Import / Scraping

  • scan your rom folders and import games to local database
  • scrape artwork and game info from various online sources
  • import local available data (descriptions, artwork, videos)
  • results from all selected sources can be mixed together
  • three scraping modes: Automatic: Accurate, Automatic: Guess Matches, Interactive: Select Matches
  • search games by crc value or gamename (if supported by the scraped site or the local description file format)
  • create local nfo files while scraping (option to reimport local files without scraping)
  • create scrape result files (missing artwork, missing descriptions, possible mismatches)
  • import options dialog: asks for most important import options on every game import
Game Browsing
  • browse games by console, genre, year, publisher and first character
  • automatic video playback in video window
  • fullscreen video browser (zap through all selected game videos)
  • game details page
  • different views of the main window
  • configurable image placing (choose filetype for background, gamelist, etc.)
  • fully skinnable UI: already skinned for Confluence, Night and Carmichael (other skins will use the Confluence look and feel)
  • dedicated MAME views to display cabinets and marquees

Game Launching

  • launch roms and standalone games in solo or non-solo mode (solo mode quits XBMC and relaunches it when you quit the emulator)
  • supports direct launching of savestate files
  • detect games in zip and 7z archives and ask user which game to load
  • create xbox cut files on the fly
  • store game launch count in db
  • restore viewstate when returning to RCB

RCB scrapes data from these sites (don't forget to visit, register and contribute!):
