    So I am fairly new to RetroPie, and so far it has been an amazing experience. I am now trying to do the custom splashscreen.png while loading, I am using the following:

    sudo cp /home/pi/RetroPie/splashacreen.png /etc/splashscreen.png

    I get no errors. I reboot the Pi, and it still shows one of the default splashscreens. What am I doing wrong? Suggestions? I feel like I am following the tutorials for it to a “T”…

    Please help! Thanks in advance!

    I have also went into the RetroPie-Setup menu and went into the splashscreen area. I did a search, through my FTP client for the names of those files, and cannot locate them (thinking I could just throw my custom splashscreen in that directory and have it show up).

    On top of that, I rebooted into Raspberian and used the LXTerminal to do the same thing. Executed the same line of code I used above, and it went just went to the next line with the blinking text indicator (which is normal if it works, correct?).

    My apologies for my novice abilities with Linux and RetroPie, it has been a while since I used Linux on a regular basis, and this is my first week with RetroPie.

    Figured it out!

    Had to navigate to: /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/supplementary/splashscreens

    Once there you have to create a folder with whatever you named your .png

    In my case, I just did the following:
    /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/supplementary/splashscreens/splashscreen/splashscreen.png

    Once that was done, I went into the RetroPie-Setup and when into the Setup area where you select your splash screen, and then selected my custom splashscreen. Did a reboot, and it worked!
