I went through the trouble of scraping all of my games with version 3.0 and have the gameslist.xml and images. I installed the new 3.5 image on my SD and tried to restore my previous scrape. I put them in the right folders and the permissions look good (owner = PI, has rw perms) but EmulationStaion doesn’t use the metadata or the box art.
I tried copying them via USB and also WinSCP and while files are there, no love.
Folders under /opt/retropie/configs/all/emulationstation
Gameslist file located under /opt/retropie/configs/all/emulationstation/gamelists/nes/
gameslist.xml shows the right path to the image:
<image>~/.emulationstation/downloaded_images/nes/Pipe Dream (U)-image.jpg</image>
I have restarted the system and still don’t get the boxart/metadata. What am I doing wrong? I should be able to just copy the previously downloaded images and gamelist files and move them to a new system so I don’t have to re-scrape right?
I have verified that if I do a manual scrape from EmulationStation that it will fetch the boxart and metadata and display it.
