    Great project!
    I’ve configured mupen64plus and it seems to work fine however, I’m struggling to get the load save state working.

    I can confirm that the save state shortcut does indeed create a file in ~/.local. When I attempt to load the saved state I see mupen64plus restart itself and then exit back to ES.

    I think I notice an error, “Bus error…” but I can’t be sure ’cause it’s there for a split second and then quits to ES. Not sure where the log is for mupen64plus…

    I’m using the retro 2.6 img for RPi2.




    I experience the same issue. All I could see as well was some sort of Bus error.
    Also on 2.6 IMG on the Pi 2. Saving appears to work fine – I don’t see any message about it ingame, but I see the files that are created (in my case on a mounted NFS share so I can continue to play in another room on another device).

    I was thinking about permissions of the savestates…but they are fine imo.



    Thanks for the reply, at least I know it’s not only me.

    Hopefully someone will post a solution.



    Hey mate,
    I just succeeded in this problem.
    I just made a complete binary update yesterday and, after completely reconfiguring my controllers for mupen64plus, I can now successfully save and load. Maybe give that a try. Takes a few hours, but totally worth it.
    Oh, and maybe back up your mupen64 .cfg and input-file before you do that.



    Thanks for the reply, going to do a binary update and hopefully fixes it for me as well.

    Edit: seems like I still get the same bus error ;(

    The error seems to be coming from”

    /opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/ Bus Error






    I’m also struggling with this. Let us know if there’s any solution!



    I am having this problem too, tried a binary install and it didn’t help :o(

    Hate the game not the player !



    Did anyone found a way to load state with Mupen64plus ?

    Emulator also crashes on my side (Retropie 3.1) when trying to load state (by pressing F7 for instance)
