    The gamelist.xml files point to where it is reading the images from.
    If you type
    sudo find -name “gamelist.xml” it will show you where they all are.

    Thanks have to take a look at that file

    So i took a look at that file and it does show where it loaded pic from but i am looking for where that ES scraper tells to make that list in “/home/pi/.emulationstation” and hold all the files there so when i run it it will do all this to my usb HDD.

    But now i have also have a diffrent issue now. I was able to change where it gets the roms from to my USB drive but when i fo back in to emulationstation it wroks great. but when i restart my pie i get this
    terminate called after throwing an instance of boost::filesystem3::filesystem_error’ what(): boost::filesystem::status: Permission denied: “/media/Kingston/Games/GBC” /usr/bin/emulationstation: line 11: 2396 Abprted
    $es_bin “$@”

    Just found out if i ctrl+c just before emulationstation comes up then i go into startx and then log out it works fine if that helps.

    if you can help me what that thanks.
