OK, I figured it out. When I transfered the gamelist folder to the fresh 3.6 install, it never saved. It always rewrote back to default. I quit emulationstation into the command prompt. THEN I ftp’ed the gamelist folder over to the appropriate location (same folder as downloaded_images) and rebooted the system. I went into my system and bam! my previous scraped gamelist and images where there. So I guess emulationstation cant be running when transferring you gamelist folder. I could have though it used to tho.
