Request: "Prefer Screenshot" option exposed in retropie setup script #130

This scraper is awesome, and makes my life very easy.

My only issue is that I prefer screenshots instead of box art - I see you can get screenshots by using a flag if you initiate the scraper manually from commandline, but I love the ease of using the retropie setup script. Can this be added as an option in that spot?

I can look in to it but I didn't see a nice option to generate an ordered list in dialog and exposing just the string "s,b" would probably be a bit too cryptic. I might be able to have a popup window with the explanation and then the user types the string.

I edited the file directly to achieve my goals. I wrote up instructions here:

@sselph, thanks so much for all of your work on this, it's great stuff!

@pipwerks in case you're interested as well this is a bit of a hacky guide for getting your own screenshots if they are missing from some reason in the scraper sources.

@pipwerks Hi, I would be interested in this too. Your link is dead, please update or share your solution here.
I'd like to download screenshots, videos, and game logo for consoles and arcade.
