I had a retropie setup a year or so ago but it seems my sd card was damaged and needed to be replaced. I have searched for the previous version/theme I was using and cant find it so hopefully someone here can help!
I was not using emulation station with retropie but another software. I was able to download the roms directly through the software by internet with the option of manual and original box arts.
Anyone know what this build was/is?
What you had doesn't look like a RetroPie image - there is no ROM downloading included in any of the RetroPie software. You probably used a 3rd party image, which is not supported here: https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first.
