    Hello,
    I am nearly done with setting up my project, but I’m running into a problem. When running the scraper, it doesn’t catch everything, and I would like to add my own images/descriptions manually.

    Where are the scraper files stored? I can’t seem to find it anywhere (on the internet or my pi). The only information I can find is for the old scraper.

    Thanks!

    The path is /home/pi/.emulationstation/gamelists/{System}/gamelist.xml

    Worked perfectly, thank you! Note to future googlers: There is an XML entry for all of the games you have loaded, even if they haven’t been scraped. This confused me for a while, where I had been trying to add a new entry at the end. This does not overwrite the previous automatic entry in the file.
