Ok new test.

to Point 1 from Post #98
It shows still only the number of games when selected.

to Point 2 from Post #98
Now it works fine.

to Point 3 from Post #98
Now it shows all Informations.

I have now created 14 Emus how have many games, but most of them get no Infos. Most of them have (gg12345) behind the title. Is this still the right way for best tagging like shown in wiki.

Hello guys,
I’m trying to add some game but I just receive:
(Text: 'The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.')
What did I do wrong?
Or is is because the api might changed, see Guess who's back, back again? - TheGamesDb.net

Thanks in advance.
Has anyone else found a solution to this problem. This has been the one thing holding me up from finally making the switch to Mediaportal from WMC, is getting my emulators and games catalog imported. everytime i run a test, this is all i get:

[2020-05-09 02:00:21,226] [46223407] [51 ] [INFO ] - GamesMetadataExtractor: Exception reading resource '{e88e64a8-0233-4fdf-ba27-0b44c6a39ae9}:///C:/Roms/NES/Legend of Zelda (gg113).nes' (Text: 'The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.')

I have tried to force the cover and data with the (gg113), yet it still comes back with 404 Not Found.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    could you add the latest version of Emulators to the download section?
    I think the 2018 version there is outdated and there was at least the x64 update afterwards, if not even another fix.

    Thanks :)

    How can I add a help text to emulators, while the home tile is focused?

    For other plugins the structure of XXX-actions.xml is slightly different:
    XML:
        <PushNavigationTransition Id="873EB147-C998-4632-8F86-D5E24062BE2E"
                Name="Home->AppLauncher"
                DisplayCategory="z-AppLauncher"
                SortOrder="a"
                SourceStates="7F702D9C-F2DD-42da-9ED8-0BA92F07787F"
                TargetState="EE23FB37-043C-46DE-9DAC-7F023135C0B2"
                DisplayTitle="[AppLauncher.Title]"
                HelpText="[AppLauncher.Helptext]"/>
    Emulators-actions.xml has no PushNavigationTransition, can you give me a hint?

    Just add the HelpText attribute, the same as the above. It uses the same action type as media (Movies, Series, etc) because it needs to hide itself if the server isn't connected, so look e.g. here for an example.

    Sorry, my mistake. I have the release and debug folder and both contain the emulators plugin. I modified the release version, while building MP2 in debug mode. It works now :whistle:
