suggestion: automatically import local cover art file #3786

Would it be possible to easily add an automatic import of a local covert art file?


  1. have a directory where two files are located (my-favorite.sfc, my-favorite.jpg).
  2. drag the sfc file over to OpenEmu and drop into library
  3. OpenEmu looks for an existing file, that matches the name and has a supported image file type
  4. automatically add that that potentially found file as cover

by the way thanks for this amazing piece of software.

Wait,.. don't you then have to download / rename every .jpg beforehand, put it in your downloads-whatever folder, just to avoid to drag&drop the cover art manually.. from a browser e.g.?! XD

More precisely i would like to add more than one rom in a row. Just drop a folder with a bunch of 'correctly' named files and go for it.

Glad you like the app, but sorry this would be outside the scope of the project and not worth the effort implementing.
