Hi all. I’m very confused. I have RetroPie running games just fine, except in-game saves aren’t working. After some googling I have come to the conclusion that this is because I’m not exiting the emulations correctly. For whatever reason, I can’t F4 to console whilst in an emulation, and I haven’t got anything mapped to the joypad to exit.
So I do more googling, only to find that everyone’s talking about two files – ‘retroarch.cfg’ and ‘es_input.cfg’. I’m looking at the entire directory tree for RetroPie via CyberDuck and I don’t have either of these files. The simplest way to remap my controller would be to remove es_input.cfg, but I don’t have this file to remove! Do I have an older/newer version to everyone else where the files and directories are different?
Still confused. The directory structure visible in Cyber duck doesn’t match what I can see though the command line. E.g. I can’t see the /opt/retropie/config or /opt/retropie/emulators directories at all, which is where retroarch.cfg is. This is a pain because I wanted to edit the file on a GUI, not through shell script as I barely know it.
Aside from that I’ve added two lines to retroarch.cfg through shell script:
