    Hi, sorry if this question has been covered before but…

    What’s the best way to update individual emulators without losing configs? I guess it would be to update the RetroPie-setup script then install the emulator you want to update from source. My question is does this method overwrite config files and / or delete rom / bios files?

    Sorry if it’s a silly q but I don’t want to update to the latest version of the emulators I’m using only to find I’ll have to spend time reconfiguring everything again!

    Is it just a case of backing up the /opt/retropie/configs/ directory before updating an emulator?
