Emulationstation Images Not Showing

  • I’ve applied a theme that shows images of my games. Scraping doesn’t work for all the games. Ok, so I’ve manually uploaded some to the same directory. You can edit the metadata of individual games - the image could be located anywhere (I’ve kept it as default). But... they don’t show on the menu in emulationstation. Only the scraped ones will show, except one - and no idea why just that one as it doesn’t seem to differ in attributes from the others. How do I get manually added images to show up?

    Make sure you specified the correct path where you copied the images when you edit the game. Can you post the gamelist.xml file for the system where you added the images on ? We can check if there are any incorrect paths there.
