    Is there any reason why this file gets regenerated overwriting any changes made each time ES is closed?

    I have been making a theme for it and what I have had to do is make the file readonly to keep any changes I make. An error message just appears when ES is exited each time now since it cannot write to the file.

    If you want to make manual changes (i.e. whilst scraping) to a gamelist.xml, exit ES, then make the changes.
