    Raspi2, Retropie3

    I tried to change values in “retroarch.cfg” in config folder. I am accessing it through FireZilla. To see if me edits work, I decided to change this value…

    # Saves state.
    # input_save_state = f3 (f3 was f2 before)
    # Loads state.
    # input_load_state = f4

    When in the emulator, I still need to press f2 to savestate. f3 does NOT create the savestate.

    Can the retroarch.cfg be edited in wordpad, and simply saved? or is there something i’m doing wrong.

    thank you



    Lines that start with # are commented out. Remove the # to activate the config parameter – make sure you back it up first.



    thank you. This worked beautifully.
