I have followed the instructions at to scrape my emulators on my Pi2 (Retropie 3.2.1).
I started with the snes and in created an image folder and it has 100s of images now (thumb size), but they don’t show up in ES even after hitting F4 to refresh. I’ve noticed the gamelist.xml is empty too and just shows:
<?xml version=”1.0″? <gameList />
I am using the manual method to install as the Sselph install via the experimental menu doesn’t work (tried on new 3.2.1 image).
This is happening to me to right now too with NES games on retropie 3.2.1. I am running it from the retropie-setup experimental menu. I see it going through each game, and i have verified that it is downloading the cover art images, but it is not updating the gamelist.xml file.
Images end up in each different system folder with a gamelist that is almost blank, just says:
I took the time to organize all my roms into folders by name. I am doing up a few of these retro pies for friends. The first few i made didnt have this issue. Games were all in folders and scraping worked fine. Now all of a sudden it doesn’t want to work.
Ive tried scraping from different locations. Doing them all at once, doing a folder at a time. Nothing seems to work for me.
