No config folder for RetroPie
To preface, I got my Freeplay Zero as a gift, I did not build or do the initial setup for this system.

So, I want to add some launch menu art to my system, as well as needing to edit the file so my boot video plays all the way through. However, when I go on WinSCP to access the folder, it doesn't exist?! (This is also what I get when I try to navigate to from PuTTY: -bash: /opt/retropie/configs/all/ Permission denied )

I don't know if this is just an oddity of the RetroPie image that Freeplay uses, or if somehow the folder got moved, but in the folder it should be in, all I'm seeing is BIOS, retropiemenu, roms, and splashscreens. I know the config folder should be there as well, but it's just not. If someone could help me figure out this strangeness I'd appreciate it.
Have you done this same thing with a "stock" RetroPie image before? You make it sound like it's something that works on RetroPie normally but not on your Freeplay Zero. That would be rather odd.

You said a couple differing things there, so I want to get this straight. Are you using WinSCP to try to transfer files and ALSO using PuTTY to SSH in?

If you SSH in, there are things that the "pi" user may not have access to. Offhand, I don't know if /opt/retropie/configs/all/ is one of them, but I would guess that it is.

If you want to edit that file via SSH, you would need to do that as super user. Use a command something like this:
sudo nano /opt/retropie/configs/all/

i can confirm sudo nano /opt/retropie/configs/all/ works fine for me although a CM3 Smile
