If a file named gamelist.xml is found in the root of a system's search directory OR within `~/.emulationstation/%NAME%/`, game metadata will be loaded from it. This allows you to define images, descriptions, and different names for files. Note that only standard ASCII characters are supported for text (if you see a weird [X] symbol, you're probably using unicode!).
Images will be automatically resized to fit within the left column of the screen. Smaller images will load faster, so try to keep your resolution low.
