[quote=84356]I used this and it it worked beautifully to build the gameslist.xml – but ES doesn’t seem to be using it. I have copied the file to both ~/Retropie/roms/mame/gameslist.xml and in ~/.emulationstation/gameslist/mame/gameslist.xml and still, no data in emulation station.

Anything I’m missing?

Did you make sure to quit emulation station before moving the gamelist.xml?
You need to move it to the directory that contains the ROMs and it has to match your configuration in es_systems.cfg. Can you put the relevant lines of your ~/.emulationstation/es_systems.cfg here so I can see it?
