How to add system to main menu

I am trying to add PSP Mini to the main menu. I have added es_systems.cfg to
\\RECALBOX\share\system\.emulationstationwith the following:
<?xml version="1.0"?> <systemList> <system> <name>pspminis</name> <fullname>PlayStation Portable Minis</fullname> <path>/recalbox/share/roms/pspminis</path> <extension>.iso .pbp .cso .ISO .PBP .CSO</extension> <command>python /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/configgen/emulatorlauncher.pyc %CONTROLLERSCONFIG% -system %SYSTEM% -rom %ROM% -emulator %EMULATOR% -core %CORE% -ratio %RATIO% %NETPLAY%</command> <platform>psp</platform> <theme>pspminis</theme> <emulators> <emulator name="ppsspp"> <cores> <core>ppsspp</core> </cores> </emulator> </emulators> </system> </systemList>
The system shows in the menu but the games will not load, they do work if I copy them into the PSP rom folder. I have to manually change the emulator to PPSSPP for it to try to start. But if goes back to the main screen. Also if I set it to PPSSPP from the main menu under emulator settings it does not change anything. I still have to manually edit the game to use PPSSPP
Also how do I put a main menu graphic for that system. Currently only shows the text. Thank you.
I searched for several hours and cannot find a clear answer on how the es_system.cfg should be written out for Recalbox 7.2.2 as from my understanding you cannot change the file under share_init. You have to make a new file and add new entry under
@thewhite I can't test this right now, apparently you're following the correct idea, according to the tutorial:
Did you copy the PSP entry from the es_systems.cfg file and modify it, or did you copy it from another system (SNES for example)?
PSP is a standalone emulator, I can't confirm at this point if there is any difference, but it is a possibility.
I recommend that you also read these topics.:

@zing Ok great I changed the NAME to PSP as I read that it has to match one of the systems in the original es_systems or it will not launch. The games now launch. Now even though I set ti to use PPSSPP in the advanced menu I still have to manually change the emulator to PPSSPP for each game and then it launches?

This shouldn't be necessary, but if it is, you can edit this in the gamelist, the easiest is to use external software like Skraper or ARRM:

Or, what should be even easier, is to make a Configuration overload file:
