    Hellow everyone!

    I like to keep the save states, save games and extracting tmp folder outside of roms folder so I use the individual retroarch.cfg inside of each platform config folder to make it happen, it worked well in previews versions but I cannot make it work on retropie 3.1.

    The directories were previously created with permissions set to 777.

    Here is my retroarch.cfg

    # Settings made here will only override settings in the global retroarch.cfg if placed above the #include line
    
    input_remapping_directory = /opt/retropie/configs/gamegear/input_remapping/
    
    savefile_directory = /home/pi/RetroPie/srm/gamegear
    savestate_directory = /home/pi/RetroPie/sstate/gamegear
    extraction_directory = /home/pi/RetroPie/tmp/gamegear
    
    #include "/opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg"

    What error do you get when trying to save a game?

    If I use:
    extraction_directory = /home/pi/RetroPie/tmp/gamegear
    the games don’t boot, I had to # the line to be able to play…

    The line savefile_directory = /home/pi/RetroPie/srm/gamegear didnt work either since i cannot save progress so I suppose the save state thingy didnt worked as well… 🙁

    What yellow text do you get at the bottom of the screen when you try to save a state?

    And the user pi has write access to those directories?

    it shows up “failed to save state to “/home/pi/RetroPie/sstate/gamegear/Sonic the Hedgehog…” I couldn’t see the end of error since didn’t fit on screen

    Oh I forgot to change the ownership of sub folders v.v I’m feeling dumb now… its working now
