    Hello;

    I’ve a problem with retroarch.
    I played Zelda Oracle of age on GBC today but when I reboot the raspberry my profile was lost.

    I’ve tried to restart a new game, just reset retroarch; I found my profile into Zelda.
    I switch Off then On the raspberry; I lost my profile and I should to restart the game from the begenning.

    Can someone has a fix for that ?
    How could I save my game into a hard file ?

    Regards

    CortX

    Always close the emulator and shutdown your PI. Otherwise cached data will be lost.

    Hello;

    How do I close the emulator ?

    I use a multiple key to force exit game then I’m back to the main screen:

    Is that enough ?
    Because as I said, it’s what I do; ( “I’ve tried to restart a new game, just reset retroarch; I found my profile into Zelda.” )
    But if I unplug the power cable (after the reset) then power on I lost everything.

    Can you be more specific ?
    The problem came from unplug the power cable ?
    Should I shutdown rertropie with the linux command: shutdown
    How can I proceed knowing that I don’t have keyboard, only 2 gamepad.

    I want to buy http://mausberry-circuits.myshopify.com/products/shutdown-circuit-use-your-own-switch to use the power button from NES, but I think 13.50$ + $6 (Shipping outside US) is a little bit expansive just for using a power button.
    I that the only way to solve my problem ?

    Use shutdown from the emulation station menu:

    Shutdown Raspberry PI
