    I want to replace the genesis logo with a megadrive replacement. I dont know where I have to replace the file, but I found this:

    <image name=”logo”>
    <path>./art/32x.svg</path>

    Can someone help me find the /art folder on my pi?

    i dont have access to my pi right now so I’m not entirely sure but two places to check /etc/emulationstation/ and then it should be in a theme folder of sorts if i remember correctly. if not there, /home/pi/.emulationstation

    Found it:
    /etc/emulationstation/themes/simple/megadrive/art

    Better yet if you are trying to get the genesis theme instead of the megadrive theme- the easiest way to do it is change the es_systems.cfg file under megadrive. You can keep all of your roms in the megadrive folder and everything else the same- all you have to change is the theme.

    /etc/emulationstation/es_systems.cfg
    
    change it to look like this
    
    <system>
        <name>megadrive</name>
        <fullname>Sega Mega Drive / Genesis</fullname>
        <path>~/RetroPie/roms/megadrive</path>
        <extension>.smd .bin .gen .md .zip .SMD .BIN .GEN .MD .ZIP</extension>
        <command>/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 0 _SYS_ megadrive %ROM%</command>
        <platform>megadrive</platform>
        <theme>genesis</theme>
      </system>
