Transfering files, images, splashscreens etc.
Cool, I'm in. What can I do with this? How does this enable me to solve the problem with transferring files?
@martinnoren At the very least, it means you can connect over a network.
With all of the trouble you're having, how did you initially set up RetroPie? Did you use the image on the website, or did you install on top of an existing Raspbian install? I'm just trying to figure out what's going on. You shouldn't have to install a separate FTP program or anything like that with the default image, even on a Zero.
I installed it using an img file from the retropie website, the file marked to be used with raspberry pi zero.
I'm not having allot of problems. The only problem, all though big, is that I seem to lack permission to transfer files using ftp.
The retropie is otherwise working like a charm, I have even tested transferring games via usb with great success. The reason I want to be able to transfer other files is "just" to make it look better, assign a custom splash screen, select a nice theme etc.
Allas I'm working on mac, "if on windows" it says. So I assume it's only for windows.
scroll down. samba works on mac fine. it appears in the finder as 'retropie' if you are connected to the same router.
@martinnoren When you use Cyberduck, use the user
piif you're not. Use the SFTP protocol, on port 22.
I've been using the username: pi
With the password: raspberry
I have however been using port 21, when I change to port 22 I get:
Could not parse response code.

@martinnoren Are you using FTP, or SFTP? You need to use SFTP.
It is solved!!!!!!!
I changed to filezilla ... was using cyberduck. Might be that cyberducks original setting is something other that SFTP protocol and FileZilla uses it as default.
I have now successfully transfered a file using ftp to my Pi.
Thank you all!
@martinnoren Congratulations! Not only that, but you learned a few things along the way. :)
I learnt loads! Thanks again :)
