    How or where to get cover artworks, thumbnails etc for all ROMs (all-in-one for one system), and where to put them

    I just want to know, where to get some coverartworks, thumbnails and backgroundpictures for all the roms like nes snes n64 gb gbc gba in the Retroarch lists on the Switch. I had that on my old SD-card but after changing to a new one and updatet Retroarch version, I don't have the pictures :( it would be great to have some help here :D

    PS. the modified Switch is never or not connected to the internet.

    You need to setup a playlist beforehand, create your own with the scanning feature.

    Option 1: without internet connection, download manually the thumbnail you want from here https://thumbnails.libretro.com/

    Option 2: you can let the system download them for you, just make sure your rom names match the ones here https://thumbnails.libretro.com/

    thanks for the answer, but its not really what I wanted, because I have to choose manually the pictures for each game, is there a way to get a pack with all the rom pictures for each system and put it on a folder at the Switch?

    The second option is what I don't understand because I never use or will use internet on the modified Switch, and how could a playlist or scanning feature help, when the switch isnt connected to the internet, is there another way? I had some pictures in the past on my old SD and at that time the Switch was also NOT connected to the net. thanks :)
