    Hi,

    Every time I update the retropie script to allow retroarch autoconfig, my gameboy advance emulator and roms stop working. They were fine before. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I could solve this?

    I’m not sure why that is happening, the GBA emulator isn’t configured via Retroarch. Try backing up your es_systems.cfg and gpsp.cfg before running the auto config and then restore afterwards

    How do I do this, just copy to my computer, run auto config and then copy it back across?
    Sorry, complete newbie

    Thanks for the reply

    yes copy them off with a ftp client, I use Filezilla. When you say stop working, you can’t run the emulator at all?

    When I click the rom, it starts running code, but after a few seconds it blacks out and returns to the rom menu

    I use cyberduck at the moment, so I will give it a try

    Before I copied the old gpsp file over I got

    “/home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/gpsp/raspberrypi/gpsp: No such file of directory”

    But now that I have copied over the version of the emulator when it worked, I get

    “/home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/gpsp/raspberrypi/gpsp: Permission denied”

    That’s the only part that causes error

    try reinstalling GPSP via the setup script, it’s in ‘source based installation’

    No, that hasn’t worked. This the the code I get now:

    performance
     powering on HDMI with explicit settings (CEA mode 4)
     /home/pi/RetroPie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh: line 32:   /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/gpsp/raspberrypi/gpsp: No such file or directory
     Powering on HDMI with preferred settings
     ondemand

    That’s it

    Have you tried to start the emulator from command line? It seems the runcommand script doesn’t find the path/binary that you are trying to execute.
    You can start the emulator from commandline with:
    /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/gpsp/raspberrypi/gpsp

    See if theres something in that specific folder with:
    ls -l /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/gpsp

    When I try to see if there is something in the folder it comes up with:

    ls: cannot access /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/gpsp: No such file or directory

    When I try to run the emulator from command line:

    -bash: /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/gpsp/raspberrypi/gpsp: No such file or directory

    Thanks for the reply though

    EDIT: the gpsp emulator had been deleted, so I copied it back across. Now, it says permission denied instead of no such file or directory when I try to run from command line, but when I try to see if there is anything in it it says
