    ive located the files that i need to change and put the new one in a different location, but im still having issues.

    ive placed the new .png into a rom folder because that seems to be the only place it will actually save.

    so i put this in terminal
    sudo cp MyNewSplashScrenn.png /etc/splashscreen.png

    and it gives me an error, could i get an example of what the entire command looks like with full file path or is this all i need?

    so i eventually got it working by installing lxde  with “sudo apt-get update”  “sudo apt-get install lxde” then running the forced root terminal, and from there i was also able to edit the es_systems.cfg to ad .bin to the psx so now i have ff tactics working.
