No, its working fine, just perhaps it should not say "Warning:"

Also I believe the offlinelist support only ever worked for game snaps and not the other artwork. What with Screenshot archive and emumovies, I kind of lost ineterest in supporting offline further.

I understand Screenshot archive is down, if anyone knows who to contact maybe I can help them out with hosting?
